comment Checking the Speed of Active Network Connections
I think I may have found why it is not showing up. I need an internet connection first - but I can connect through using SSH fine.

comment Installing GCC in Solaris_x86
Thanks for that, but I got it to work with just that gcc-45, all I need is that compiler.

comment Set global environment variables at boot in Solaris 11
Thanks for that. I have found export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC in the /etc/profile file. DO I put them in there? This is the root's profile.

@raghavmishra: After installing GCC using pkg install gcc-45, I typed gcc in the command line, and it now shows gcc: no input files - thank you guys :-)

comment Installing GCC in Solaris_x86
@raghavmishra so I just type gcc? i.e. it will look like this: $ gcc? - OK, I did that and it says: -bash: gcc: command not found

comment SAS hardrive 600GB 10k is not detecting in my linux server
Is the HDD formatted correctly? ... I know that in MS Windows, that you add a new HDD, and if it is formatted incorrectly, it won't be detected.

comment How to find out if Ubuntu is using DHCP (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS GUI)
Thank you @WarrenYoung, but the network admin has a full list of all the IP addresses I have used, so there won't be any collisions.

comment Using zsh's line editor to wrap around subprocesses
Ok, I was just trying to help, as I see your question hasn't been answered in over a year. Sorry my comment wasn't good enough.

comment Using zsh's line editor to wrap around subprocesses
Have you looked at the manual for zsh - cs.elte.hu/zsh-manual/zsh_14.html? - I don't quite understand your question, but Googled the title, and found that page. It might help, but I don't know.

comment Running Visual Studio 2010 in Linux
I think doing it that way will consume more resources, but may be your only option, unless you are willing to try a different version of Linux. I will try this MS Linux, but not sure.

comment Console utility to know how disk space is distributed?
I think I may be more confused as to why people upvote the question, when it doesn't make sense.

comment Changing the IP Address in Solaris 11
Thank you for this, but it is all sorted now. I used the GUI to do it all. But it looks like this would've worked too!

comment Removed apt-get from Ubuntu
Haha, shame man. I agree with @MrLister, maybe the Ubuntu CD has something to repair all broken / missing files on your system.

comment Extracting / Installing a TAR file
I know what a simple ls is, that will show a simple list of all files and folders in that folder. I didn't try any of this, as I did not know any of this before asking, hence why I asked in the first place.

comment Extracting / Installing a TAR file
Is that file-list 2>&1 a file / directory path? Where do the files go after extracting? It has been a while since I last did this, and forgot how I did it last time.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
Yes, I have just made a simple Hello World! program, and has generated the same errors. I will add to my question what the contents is of the hello.c file and the gcc -v hello.c.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
I'm sorry @Gilles, My company won't allow me to add the contents of the .c file. I am trying to reinstall the gcc compiler now. I uninstalled the other one, in case it might've been corrupt, but now I tried to tar xvzf gcc-2.95.2pl1-dist.tar.gz, and it won't work .... great! (no it's not great)

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
Then using scoadmin software I installed gcc.
