I tried yum and can't get it to work. EPEL is too difficult.

apt-get is not on the system. I don't see anything identifiable with rpm -qa|less. ls -d /etc/*rel* worked. I then nano /etc/system-release. In the file it tells me that the OS is Amazon Linux AMI release 2011.02.1.1. Thanks.

I your first approach and get the following error -bash: lsb_release: command not found. I also tried your second approach and can't find anything mentioning redhat in /etc. Any other suggestions?

To you mean this export PATH=/home/david/Komodo-Edit-6/bin/:$PATH ~/.bashrc, because it doesn't work. I am using the bash shell.

I tried that and I get the following error message `Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service mysql status'

I think shutdown stops and then automatically starts mysql. Is there a command to permanately stop mysql?

@John T, if not everyone then, can you mention an ISP that will not have usage based billing after March 1 (sort of like the deals that Teksavvy is providing now)?
