I am trying to run the command to configure DDosim https://sourceforge.net/projects/ddosim/. I have installed Libnet0 and Libnet0-Dev . But when i try to enter command like

root@bt:~/ddosim# sudo ./configure

It simply says Command Not Found. Any idea what could be the issue ?

  • could you please post the output of ls command....(list of files in the directory);

  • Thank you for commenting . It was permission issue . chmod a+x did the job . Dec 5 '16 at 17:34

If the file exists, is the executable bit set on the file? That's the likely issue, because if it's not seArchable+eXecutable, it won't work. Also check ownership. Try "chmod a+x ./configure" Then run it again "./configure" It should work now. I'v run into this many times before if the permissions were set wrong on the configure script of a program's source code.
