Cannot Execute Binary File


Attempting to run an executable on a Red Hat Enterprise Server results in the following error:

./runInstaller: line 58: ./runInstaller: cannot execute binary file

The output of the file command on the binary file is:

runInstaller: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, IA-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

The content of the machine's /proc/cpuinfo is:

Is it a 32-bit/64-bit code?

The CPU I have Linux installed on is a Xeon:

model name : Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz

Does that mean I have something set up incorrectly?

If it is possible, try compling the program from source...
