command not found
I recently installed BackTrack 3.0 on my hdd and evrything worked youst perfect and the suddenly i turn on computer i login as root and then i try to start KDE.
with command startx
and i get message
-bash: startx:command not found
and then i try command sudo and again
-bash: sudo:command not found
Evrything worked just fine,and i`we booted BT3 couple of time before this happend, i realy dont have idea what happend. And then i tryed to boot from live cd, and just the sam happens. So i cant even install it once again.I`m really confused.
P.S. I`m sorry about my bad english
Ok, I don't know what happened exactly but maybe you have a problem with your memory.
Try to shutdown the pc and unplug the electrical wire, plug it and have a try.
Some times it works. But it is mainly when I don't know what else to do.
Not having a copy of BT3 to hand atm (shame on me)

Allthough if it is thowing up command not found the alias may not be there,
You can try
find -name startx /
I appreciate your intent to help, but what leads you to believe this is a memory problem?

Also check your /etc/profile and make sure you path has not been messed up somehow.
The executable startx resides in the /usr/bin directory so you can try to start it with the absolute path and see if that works.
like so /usr/bin/startx
If that works you know you have a path problem.
Just that even with the liveCD he can't run any commands.

But i`m still realy curious what happend and even more curious how did that happend, but now it`s working and i hope it will stay like that, and once again thanx evrybody for the help.
I think that you will have the same problem some times.
Don't forget to update BT. And test your memory. I think there is a tool for that in the liveCD.
