Can't run .bin in Fedora 10 x64, no error given


Hi all,

I am trying to install Alfresco Labs3 on a Fedora 10 x64 machine. Fedora is fully updated and I have installed the required tech stack for Alf.

There is no error given and nothing in /var/log/messages.

The .bin itself is owned by root and I did a chmod 777 on it.
I go to run the .bin as root and all I get is a fresh command prompt line.

Here's what happens:

Code:
root@localhost installs]# ./Alfresco-Labs-3c-Linux-x86-Install
root@localhost installs]#
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks ;D

Without any error message, it isn't really possible to diagnose from afar (I know, not your fault). What does the output of "ls -la" in that directory give you?

Try this and see if it comes up with anything.

Code:
root@localhost installs]# ./Alfresco-Labs-3c-Linux-x86-Install --h

Nothing happened when I added the --h, back to a plain old command prompt ;D

Ok,you are running Fedora 10 x64 on your machine,and you are looking to install the package:

Quote:
Alfresco-Labs-3c-Linux-x86-Install
Which is an x86 package.
Looks like the wrong architecture to me.

Is there some sort of 32bit libs package available for Fedora?.

I don't know what that means, so my advice may be flawed, but in the Alfresco instructions did you notice and follow
Code:
Before you install Alfresco, ensure that you have JDK 5 or 6 installed on your machine.

I've run a lot of x86 32 bit packages in x86_64 Linux and never saw one fail silently because of lack of 32 bit libraries.

Certainly they fail from lack of the right 32 bit libraries and sometimes it is pretty hard to figure out which package or how to install it to get the required 32 bit libraries. But the failure generally is clear enough that you at least know some .so file is missing.

I haven't used Fedora, but I don't expect this behavior in Fedora would be very different from Centos.

I've also run Java GUI's that depend on a newer version of the JDK than I have installed. Those do tend to fail silently with no hint about what is wrong. So I think that is a better guess.

Sounds reasonable to me.
Let's hope for some feeback from the OP.

I don't see the problem in the first post. The classic *nix way is that cmds don't give any feedback if everything goes ok... only if an error occurs.
Does the pkg not work? What symptoms if any?

Thanks a lot for all the feedback guys. I've got a fresh install of JDK 1.6.0_u14.

I have found the solution to my problem. As it turns out you guys were right, the installer was not meant for 64bit architecture. I yum installed a couple of 32bit libraries, and bingo, bob's my uncle!

Code:
yum install libX11.i386
yum install libXext.i386
Thanks again for all the replies ;D

Now it sounds like I may have distracted you from the correct answer by "the trooper", since your results contradict my experiences. I'm glad that distraction didn't stop you from getting the problem fixed.
