Executing a .run file


Hi, I have an xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run file which I want to run in Centos 6.2. I have changed the mode to execute the file i.e.

chmod 755 xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run

and executed it using,

./xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run

But to no avail. I am logging into the server using VNC viewer. Does it have to do anything with the installer not working? I have tried all that is possible but nothing is working. Please Help!!!!
I appreciate an early response. Thanks in advance.

Basically nothing happens. It just returns to the command prompt ready to take in the next command.

try this
Code:
sh *.run
that / in the command is the problem
also from only the 755 you did not make the file an executable
you forgot the " +x "

With:
Code:
ls -la *.run
you will see the file status.

I made it an executable by giving "+x"
I got result as:
xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run: xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run: cannot execute binary file

Code:
ls -la xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run
gave me

Code:
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 xtuple xtuple 86928270 Apr 5 13:30 xTuple-3.8.0-linux-installer.run

Expexted result is a GUI is supposed to open where I can install xtuple.

It might be that the file was corrupted during download. Have you tried redownloading the file?

And I did try redownloading it again many times to check the same. But still not working

Do you need to run it as root? Have you tried that? Some installs require root access. Do an su - and enter the password when prompted then do the command.

I am running it as root only.

You might want to look over here at the xTuple site. There are a few issues I saw that can make the installer not appear. It may be faster to get help there as they are more familiar.

I was able to run the installer after installing some 32 bit libraries. But now I am not able to open the xtuple executable

Code:
cd /opt/xTuple-3.8.0/xTupleERP
./xtuple
/opt/xTuple-3.8.0/xTupleERP/xtuple.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Now what should I do?
