I got stuck on exercise 6. It says "Change the directory to the 2015/feb/ directoryList all files and directories in the working directory."
I typed $cd 2015/feb/$ lsThe box doesn't get checked and I can't move on. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Assuming that your commands were successful, the next likely explanation is that it was looking for cd ../feb to have been typed (like in their example). If so, navigate into any of 2015's children (including feb) and run that from there
So, the correct line is $cd../feb??
Thanks, that seemed to work.I indeed had to type "cd ../feb"
Okay, now I'm having trouble on the next step. It says I have it right, but it doesn't show a new directory "media/"
Why would it? You changed directory
If it's difficult or even just annoying to keep track of the current directory, you can put it in the prompt by doing:
PS1="\\W $ "
(to make persistent that line would need to be added in ~/.bashrc
