Installing .tar.gz files downloaded to a separate partition
I have a 20 GB partition exclusively for Fedora Core 4 of which, due
to several reasons, more than 70% of the space is utilised. As such I download either text files or other programs to another partition
for whose automatic mounting, I made the necessary changes in /etc/fstab file. To be more precise, Fedora Core 4 is on /dev/hda1 and
fresh programs/textfiles are downloaded to /dev/hda6.
Whenever I try to install the programs lying in /dev/hda6, i.e.
./configure etc., I get the following message:
-bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied.
The shell is /bin/bash in my system and not /bin/sh. I do not under-
stand the message. Can anybody suggest a way out? Thanks in advance.
