  2. when I enter 4) ./
    it says no such file or directory ?? how can i fix this

  3. a problem i had when i followed the instructions above was that the information/name in the direction: cd idea-IC-202.7660.26/bin ----didn't match my folder name, so maybe go and see what your folder name (the nrs might be different)...and follow the above instructions but step 3 sub for your own folder name (nr). this might help
