Yet another kerl roadblock

Lloyd R. Prentice-2

So, following the kerl docs I get through this step:

 

~/Kerl/21.1$ kerl list installations
21.1 /home/lloyd/Kerl/21.1

 

Now, the docs say:

 

And at last activate it:

$ . /path/to/install/dir/activate
I try it:

$ ./home/lloyd/Kerl/21.1/activate
bash: ./home/lloyd/Kerl/21.1/activate: No such file or directory

I look into ...Kerl/21.1:

~$ cd Kerl/21.1
lloyd@wg-dev:~/Kerl/21.1$ ls -l
total 40
-rw-rw-r-- 1 lloyd lloyd 3547 Nov 20 17:57 activate
-rw-rw-r-- 1 lloyd lloyd 2644 Nov 20 17:57 activate.csh
-rw-rw-r-- 1 lloyd lloyd 3061 Nov 20 17:57 activate.fish
drwxrwxr-x 2 lloyd lloyd 4096 Nov 20 17:57 bin
drwxr-xr-x 8 lloyd lloyd 4096 Nov 20 17:57 erts-10.1
...

Then I try:

$ ./Kerl/21.1/activate
bash: ./Kerl/21.1/activate: Permission denied

I make activate executable (out of a sheer guess)

~/Kerl/21.1$ ls -l
total 40
-rwxrwxr-x 1 lloyd lloyd 3547 Nov 20 17:57 activate

And try:

~/Kerl/21.1$ ls -l
total 40
-rwxrwxr-x 1 lloyd lloyd 3547 Nov 20 17:57 activate

~/Kerl/21.1$ erl -version
Erlang (SMP,ASYNC_THREADS,HIPE) (BEAM) emulator version 8.3.5

~/Kerl/21.1$ cd ~

:~$ erl
Erlang/OTP 19 [erts-8.3.5] [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [async-threads:10] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

So, the afternoon is gone. Night has dawned. I'm one step away from success,
but totally thwarted.

Can wiser heads boost me over this big washout in the road?

If so, I'll do my best to write some doc language.

All the best,

Lloyd

Could you please start learning how to use your OS on a level suitable
to a programmer? This is what impedes you over and over again, not some
omissions in documentation, as you implied in another e-mail.

A good beginning would be `man bash', "SHELL BUILTIN COMMANDS" section,
for now about the "." command Kerl docs said you should use.

You guys are the best.

Now that I should have seen. Blame my aging eyes.

Sebastian... I’m not a professional programmer. I’m a writer with a vision trying to build something good. The patient help of folks on this list has been inspiring and deeply appreciated.

Mucho gracias,

Loyd

You tried dot-slash while the docs asked you to try dot-space-slash
