Oh no...
Go here for a definition: http://www.linuxvalley.it/encycloped....8.php#TELINIT

They are the quick and dirty way of moving in and out of runlevel 5 to 3 and back again.

Now that we have used your "export CC" fix to run that installer, there are apparently other incompatibilities in that thing that possibly result in other anomolies???

telinit was certainly working the very last moments before the compile, because "telinit 3" is the command that I always use to exit from X and drop instantly to the line command screen.

Apparently you have the same result???? Dat not good...

Anyone know how to get out of this arrangement??? The two files, telinit and init, are still in my /sbin directory where they are supposed to be, but the system no longer knows what they mean.

There must be a config path file in Linux somewhere that now no longer has the path, but then navigating to that directory in a terminal window logged on as root still produced the same blank looks.

I'm open to ideas!
