Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to run an executable make_surface file in my Linux 4.0, 32-bit machine and got the error “bash: ./make_surface: cannot execute binary file”. I don't know in which code it is written.
I have checked the file access as well which is “–rwxr-xr-x” and looks fine to me.
“file make_surface” is giving me “ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, statically linked, not stripped”.
Do I need to mention any path variable in .bashrc file? If so, can anybody please send me the command for this?
I am very new to linux and absolutely have no idea what is going on.
I would really appreciate if someone can help me in this regard.
It is Red Hat Linux....I had to install this old version to get something running which was not compatible with other version.
My system device is showing "Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] DRAM Control. Does it mean a 64bit OS?
I am sorry if my problem is not very clear. But what I'm trying to do is to run an executable make_surface which I'm not being able to.
I've mentioned everything in my first post I know about the file, though I don't know in which code it is written.
Let me know if you need some more information. I will try to find it out.
No, I mean why exactly are you using a thirteen year old distro, to solve what problem, what exactly is this programme designed to do, is it as critical as your 13 year old ideal, where did you get this installer.
Mainly what I want to know is, why are you using a distro some six years older than your hardware (Assuming your hardware came out the first day it was released) when it already was obsolete.
So to say again; what exactly are you trying to do
