./configure problem


Hi,
I'm using Slackware 10 (freshly reinstalled) right now and i've encountered a rather strange problem (at least to me...). I issued the following command after extracting a source package.

Code:
./configure
and here's the output that I got.

Quote:
-su: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
never actually seen something like this since i've started using Linux. Any ideas. Oh...BTW i tried installing Real player 10 gold using a .bin file and it constantly gave me permission denied message. Yes, I am root so I guess i should be able to install anything.

Tux,

did you chmod the file to flag it as executable?

You don't run a ./configure command on RealPlayer, that's why you're getting the error.
The install sequence should be:
Code:
chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
When you run the ./ command, it'll ask you where you want to install it etc etc, you should be OK from there.

I didnt run the "./configure" on real player installation. Here's what I did for real player

# chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
# ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

but it gives me the permission error.

Also is the case when i use "./configure" on any source package. I gives me the following error.

-su: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

This is strange...never had such an issue ever with any linux i've tried.

Tux,

edit: I did all this being root

i read this:
-------------
I'll answer my own question with....

I've found sh.exe and placed this is /bin and it's now running
configure. I'll see how it goes, but any other advice is welcome on this
matter.
--------------

in my Slack:

egag@egag12:~$ ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2004-08-02 15:54 /bin/sh -> bash*

/bin/sh is a link to 'bash'
