Hi there,

I've started working through LAB 2 upon attempting to retrieve the shell scripts a 404 Error is being thrown.

Copied from LAB2_1 - tested in the terminal and from the browser, no luck.

wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFD259/LFD259V2019-03-11SOLUTIONS.tar.bz2 --user=xxxxxxx --password=xxxxxxxxx

Some assistance would be much appreciated.

    Did you type or copy and paste. If you look I think there is a note which mentions there are some issues pasting from a PDF. One issue is single quotes become back quotes. The other issue, which I think you are seeing, is that the underscores don't paste. Make sure they are in the pasted command.

    If you can share the errors you are seeing it would also help determine your issues.


  • @serewicz my bad copy and pasting from the PDF. It works.

    Thanks for the prompt response.
