Hi, i got linux Slackware 10.2 not long time ago (weeka go) .... i downloaded 1 Setup, and it is a .bin file, i know i could open it in wondows through DAEMON or any other soft like that, bot what can i do on linux? Please help....
If I am understanding you correctly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You want to install Slackware, but don't have a cd burner?
What do .bin files have to do with this? What exactly did you download?
If you can't burn CDs, do you have a disk drive? Slackware can just as easily be installed by creating a partition, downloading the packages, into the same directories as on the server, and using that partition as the installation source. You then just have to download and write the boot and root disks.
Or you could just order the CDs.
If this isn't the answer to your question, perhaps you could try asking the question in some sort of coherent manner that someone can actually understand.
Ops, sorry gys, i meessed upo your head....it wasnt meant like that....
I downloaded a file called hlds.bin ....I got another pc, so i waned to make a Counter Strike ( ) server....so i got a non-steam version server,I downloaded the .bin file, but how to Install the Program from it?
Do you now understand what i am talkig about ( i am not the man who's only interest is counter strike, but i do want to make the server, if ill fail, i will find another use for my linux )
if you DL a ".bin" (a binary file) and not a ".iso" (a cd image) what you have is a binary file and you need to open a terminal and cd to the dir that it is located and you need to change the permissions if the .bin file to make it executable by using the command "chmod" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=20 and then use "./filename.bin" that will install that binary package.
Now I'm not sure what that package is but thats what I have to do with almost every binary file I DL
I think you guys are talking 2 different types of bin files (dont know which the OP means though), 1 can be natively executed under linux, one is a similar image format to .iso (.bin usually comes with a .cue for burning)
Either way you might be able to mount the .bin with the mount -o loop command if you're talking an image.
or follow chemichaels instructions if it's a linux binary.
