Hello all,

I've got an older system....running mythtv..I was getting ready to update it, I did emerge sync, and emerged portage.
along the way I had strange messages saying problems with PROVIDE and USE with relation to opengl and xorg.

I just found a post and I think I fixed that.

However, I've some basic STRANGE problems.

I cannot seem to normall use common command like ls or rm.
When I do ls...I get:

-bash: /usr.bin/ls: No such file or directory

I get the same message for rm.

If I do which ls I get /bin/ls

so, to use these commands I have to use the full path. Can someone give me some idea as to why my system is looking
in /usr/bin for these commands rather than in /bin? Any ideas how to fix this?

This was working prior to my emerge sync problems....

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

Thank you!!

That worked!!

Can you tell me what this did....and what exactly may have caused the problem in the first place?
I've never quite run into anything like this before!

Thanx,

cayenne :D

It instructed your shell to forget its cache of where commands were located, so that it would look them up again next time. In older releases, coreutils put symlinks in /usr/bin for some commands. Newer coreutils builds do not do that, but your shell remembered finding the command there from when the symlink existed. The hash -r made it forget that, so now it has rescanned the path and found the real files (in /bin).

You will need to run hash -r once in each shell which was started before you updated coreutils. You will not need to do it in newly started shells. It is probable that you will not need to do this again when the next coreutils update comes out, but that cannot be guaranteed until we see the released version.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, the cause and solution have already been presented in topic "[solved] no coreutils in /usr/bin".
