It’s no news to anyone who spends even a little bit of time learning how to use Linux that parallels can be drawn between working in shell and demonology. You have to know exactly what you’re calling, you have to know what names to use, you have to be in the right place to get anything done. Most importantly though, you have to chant everything exactly the right way, or you’re about to get screwed.
Replace .conf files with ‘the fiery pit’ and you’re at about the right vantage.
A shout out of thanks though to the friend trying to help me here. It’s appreciated!
