from http://www.squid-cache.org
I am using fedora core 2

NOw after configuring with
./configure --enable-linux-netfilter

and make all
and  make install

and doing configurations in (as given in tutorials)
/usr/local/squid/etc/squid.conf

and running

/usr/local/squid/sbin/squid -z
I get
swapping cache directories

but when I run squid using
usr/local/squid/sbin/squid

nothing happens  no error messages  nothing
and nothing in
/usr/local/squid/var/logs/cache.log

and in /usr/local/squid/bin
there is no squid binary!

there are only 3 files
RunAccel  RunCache  squidclient

well sometimes binary are found in /usr/local/squid/sbin or sometimes /usr/local/squid/bin
If you are unable to find the binaries then you may have to reinstall, since you were successful to initialize the drectories then it is there , may be you are unable to locate,

And about nothing in cache.log .. check our the permission, check if that file is writable by the user under which squid is runing.
