.bin file issues...


I have recently downloaded America's Army Operations for Linux. It came in a .bin file.. The only thing that I could find to do anything with this file so far is ./ when i use ./filenamehere I get this
bash: ./myops190-linux.bin: Permission denied

I have tried this in root user and superuser. If anyone has any knowledge to give, thanks in advance.

yeah XavierP is right. Try:

chmod u+x myops190-linux.bin

then do:

./myops*

No - I think sh is only used with files ending in .sh - but please, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

In the words of Chief Wiggum - it's the only way I'll learn.

To run it, then:
chmod u+x myops190-linux.bin
./myops*
and continue as directed by the program.
