Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


Check the form and spelling of the command line. If that looks correct, use echo $path to see if the user's search path is correct. When communications are garbled, it is possible to unset a search path to such an extent that only built-in shell commands are available. Below is a command to reset a basic search path:

 % set path = (/usr/bin /usr/ccs/bin /usr/openwin/bin .)
If the search path looks correct, check the directory contents along the search path to see if programs are missing or if directories are not mounted.
