cannot execute binary file in running ferret 6.8 on linux fedora4
I'm a beginner in linux and also new to LQ. first to say hello to the group and then proposing my problem:
I'm trying to install ferret on my linux fedora4 (bash),but although I go step by step with installation user guide at the end I see this error: csn not execute binary file, this is my path: /home/fedora/software/ferret/bin/ferret
as is mentioned in user guide, I have to make a directory to put ferret_paths in it and then entering this command:
% source $SET_FER/ferret_paths
Access to Ferret and its supporting routines is through the addition of `$FER_DIR/bin' to your PATH environment variable. This addition will be done automatically when the command `source $SET_FER/ferret_paths' is issued.
Ferret can now be run by entering
but when I enter ferret in the command line it shows that error.
does anyone know why?
