Johannes, in cases like this, it is very important to have a clear message.  I liked that you said, "We cannot teach you Unix basics here".  It weakens that message if you then teach some Unix basics.  Better to keep things very simple.

Unix questions are off-topic, and will not be answered in this forum.  Do not answer them.
