help with Mozilla Firebird


Man, I feel like an idiot here. I'm trying to install Firebird from a tar.gz file and I untarred it like I'm supposed to. The install file says to type this: run-mozilla.sh

But, when I do that I get a message that says ''Cannot execute . "

I've installed this before without any problems under Redhat, so I know that I'm missing something simple here, but I don't know what. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Try instead typing:
./run-mozilla.sh

OR

chmod 755 run-mozilla.sh
And then:
./run-mozilla.sh

Cool

If you've untarred the package, go into the directory that was created and run "MozillaFirebird" (no quotes)
