slackpkg installpkg upgradepkg not working very new to slackware


so i just installed slackware today... still trying to get my feet wet in it but have used other distros for quite some time... the problem im having:    installpkg upgradepkg and slackpkg all return with a command not found error and im not sure if there is something i need to install from the dvd that i didnt     slackware64 ver 14      an example of the error is    ex@Capricorn:~$ sudo nano /etc/slackpkg/mirrors  Password:  lex@Capricorn:~$ sudo slackpkg update gpg  sudo: slackpkg: command not found  lex@Capricorn:~$ slackpkg  bash: slackpkg: command not found

seems to me like a PATH problem, try if becoming root with "su -" instead of using sudo fixes it.

once i su instead of sudo it worked so thanks how do i mark this as solved?

Use the "Thread Tools" menu at the top of the thread to mark as SOLVED
