Question cannot execute binary file


Hi,
I installed tuxedo 9.1 on the machine. it is successfully installed. but when i try to execute any command in tuxedo it says that "cannot execute binary file". I changed the permissions to 755 and tried it. but the result is the same. i changed the group owner to bin, yet the problem is not resolved. What to do for executing the commands. the permissions are as follows. iam showing the permissions for only on file.

bash-2.04# ls -l tmloadcf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 604380 May 24 07:32 tmloadcf

i changed the group owner to bin also. i tried it on HP UX also. it gives the same error. what to do? this is critical. Please help me.


Thanks in advance

May be this file is trying to execute other file on which the permissions are not appropriate. Can u show us the output which u get on the console?

What does file think the file is?
How is the partition the file resides on been mounted?
What distro are you using?
How did you install whatever you installed?


Cheers,
Tink

bash-2.04# file tmloadcf
tmloadcf: ELF-32 executable object file

the partition is mounted with rw permissions

i downloaded the binary file with extension .bin and installed it by giving ./filename.bin

Sorry, this information is not enough to make me understand the problem. Did u try to run this program through console after u installed it?
Code:
bash-2.04#
And I think the user is not having proper permissions to enter his home directory?

If there's no error, what makes you think it didn't run
or isn't running?

Check ps output to see whether it's active.
