error while installing UPS client software on ma linux box


hi all,
am new here.
while trying to run a UPS client software apps script with .bin extension,i experience this error message:.........

[root@ds7 oracle]# ./ML_15_051_Linux_x86.bin
Using /tmp for temporary storage.
Unpacking to /tmp/ML.tar...
tail: cannot open `+89' for reading: No such file or directory
Checksumming...
Unable to perform the installation. Either the distribution
file is corrupt or there is insufficient free space in /tmp.
This product requires free space at least 3 times the size
of the distribution file in /tmp. If that much is available,
please try downloading the file again.
Use './ML_15_051_Linux_x86.bin <path>' to specify an alternate temporary directory.


The free size on ma /tmp is 3.5G and the size of the .bin file is 18MB.

This software is the MultiLink Shutdown software from a UPS maker named Liebert, right ?

Yeah, it has a small syntax bug. It is supposed to be "tail -n +89"...Copy the original file to /tmp/ fixing the line above with sed (do not use vi, otherwise it will mess the binary data at bottom of script).

Code:
[root@babylon5 tmp]# cat /media/MLBKA_r0/ML1/Linux/ML_15_046_Linux_x86.bin | sed -e 's/tail +89/tail -n +89/' > /tmp/ML_15_046_Linux_x86.bin 
[root@babylon5 tmp]# bash /tmp/ML_15_046_Linux_x86.bin 
Using /tmp for temporary storage.
Unpacking to /tmp/ML.tar...
Checksumming...
Extracting...
pwd=/tmp/ML

Please wait while the MultiLink installation starts...

./Setup install
* Checking kernel version...
* Checking for /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2...
...
cheers,
