CFH, cry for help is a program for Vinux users where remote assistance can be requested.
If you break something on your Vinux installation, or just can't get something to work, a Vinux guru may be your answer.
Vinux gurus are experienced Vinux users that can answer a cry for help.
All cfh sessions are fully logged and are available by request. Vinux gurus are hand picked ensuring your system is in safe hands.
To initiate a cfh request you must have sudo rights, if you are using the user you set up when installing Vinux you will be a member of the sudoers group.
If you receive an error such as:
sudo: cfh: command not found
This indicates cfh needs to be installed, see installing programs with apt-get for more information or type:
sudo apt-get install cfh
Now that the cfh and ssh dependencies are installed re-type:
You can expect to see something like this:
Checking network access... Please type a description of the problem you are having. You can use more than one line. To end your description, enter a period by itself on one line.
Now a request is sent to the Vinux IRC channel as well as emailing guru's.
The support request stays active for four hours in which time hopefully a guru may assist you.
It is usually a good idea if you are able, to arrange with a guru on IRC, or email for a support time that suits both parties.
To cancel the request simply press:
Control + C
