Certain executables won't execute


I figure this is some trivial thing I haven't figured out yet. I'm more used to slackware, where I never encounter problems like this.

I looks like it should work, doesn't it?

You could try "sudo ./adom" to confirm if it is a permissions error of some sort or not.

Yeah, tried that already and I get "sudo: unable to execute ./adom no such file or directory"

Oddly the ATI drivers I downloaded executed perfectly fine. They're both elfs right? This is confusing the hell out of me here.

Well, it might be a shot in the dark, but is your Ubuntu 64-bit? Maybe, the executable is 32-bit?

ack ack ack

That's probably it. But wouldn't that display a different kind of error message? Also wouldn't I have encountered a similar problem with the ATI drivers?

So is there no way I can run ADOM?

Well, I found this on a Ubuntu forum. http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-422767.html
Their suggestion is to install the ia32-libs package.

It looks like you listed it from ~/ so it might run as: james@dude:~/adom$ ~/adom/adom I'd run a "which adom" to see where or if it's in your path - The way you ran it calls for it to be in the root directory (/).
