What Has Been Installed?

Note: This list of directories is somewhat out of date. You should consult the GNO FAQ (also available via ftp) for more current information. This section will be updated, but likely only after GNO v2.0.6 is released.

If you examine the directory that you chose for GNO/ME, you will find that the Installer has created several directories. Here is a brief rundown of thier contents:

:gno:bin:
This directory contains the executable shell utilities included with the GNO/ME package.

This a startup file for kern and must remain in this directory.
:gno:kern
This is the GNO kernel. Launch this to start GNO/ME.

:gno:tmp:
This directory is used by various utilities as location for their temporary files. It is currently empty, and should be cleaned on periodically.
:gno:user:
