When typing with one space between "search" and "-f/vmlinuz" I get
again the following:

error: unknown argument '-/'.

When typing without any space, I type the following:

This is the output I get after hitting the enter key:
error: unknown command 'search-f/vmlinuz".

I have also typed:
search -f /vmlinuz
This is what I get in that case:
error: no such device: /vmlinuz

Finally I typed:
search -f/ vmlinuz
The output in this case is:
error: unknown argument '-/'.

Probably, I have used now every thinkable variant of the search
command you propose to me.
Any other idea?

Respectfully yours,
