Problem in installing Mathematica 5.2 on FC5
I have been trying to install Mathematica 5.2 on Fedora Core 5.
On using the bash shell -
bash: ./MathInstaller: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
Therefore I changed to csh, now it goes like this -
$ cd /media/MATHEMATICA/Unix/Installer/
./MathInstaller: Permission denied.
The same thing happens whether I am su or normal user. Could anyone please help me with this problem.
Thanks a lot.
bad interpreter would indicate a problem with the very first line of the file.
Correct interpreter line syntax should be something like:
The "#!" are REQUIRED.
You can not typically use the csh in place of sh/bash. The scripting language for csh is completely different. The same is true of perl.
In FC6 (and, I suspect, FC5) /bin/sh is just a symbolic link to /bin/bash. You might check to see if it's set that way in your /bin directory.
