This file you wanted to install DBConfig_RHEL_SAM_10_0_R5.bin, where does it come from? I've searched the internet, you seem not to be the first one who has problems with uncompress and this file.

Could you please provide more information. For what purpose do you need this software. What do you want to do with the computer? is it for learning-purposes? are there other solutions possible? Why RedHat?

The actual software is a network management application which can only be run on RedHat or Solaris

^ it seems like it cant be installed on redhat either.

is this some proprietary software provided by your job ?

else there are 101 network monitoring programs for linux. this one doesnt seem to be well maintained.

I've totally reinstalled RedHat v6, and while re-installing I saw the optional package ncompress :-). So it is installed. I starting the whole process again.

I'm now at a stage where I'm trying to change directory to the USB (having switched to a super user from root) and I keep on getting permission denied

Quote:
bash-4.1$ cd CC09-01D1
-bash: cd: CC09-01D1: Permission denied
-bash-4.1$
CC09-01D1 is the name of the USB drive that I'm trying to access. However, I will get permission denied even if I were trying ot access DVD/CD etc...

Just had a thought. Do I need to mount the USB drive before trying to access it?

If you want to know which device your USB-drive is, please post the output of
Code:
ls /dev/sd*
probably it is /dev/sdb1, and if you have an empty directory /mnt/tmp you can mount
Code:
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/tmp

^ try logging in as root:
su -

the usb should be plugged in so the system can automount it.

why is the software dependant on a usb drive ?

Yes if it isn't mounted automatically.
