The only thing that keeps me going is the upset in American Idol last night. When David Cook sang with ZZ Top I wanted to through my Boxers at the tv.

Okay... Ubuntu...

This is my second attempt to get linux/ubuntu to work on my system. I have little understanding of the system and have a major learning curve ahead of me... To my first issue.

I have been trying to install a program called IREX, its a BBS frontend mailer... old school stuff. Anyway I have unziped the program files in a directory called irex, seemed fitting, I did the chmod deal... program wants to execute but says the termcap database is missing.

There is a file called termcap that was in the archive... and from the reading I've done this file needs to be in the /ect I cannot get this file copied or installed to said directory.

My only understanding on this matter are DOS/OS2/WINS ... my universe is too small!!!
