cannot execute binary file....


Does anyone know what this means. I downloaded Linux Doom and now I am lost. When I type ./xdoom I get the error message that says it cannot execute the binary file.


What do I do now?

what all did you download? an RPM, a source file, was "xdoom" the only file downloaded? If it was I don't blame it for having problems, it probably needs libraries etc.. to run, is xdoom a script?, if you run "file xdoom" what does it return?

i now have a dir called doom-1.8 with the following files:

README
README.dos
README.config
README.linuxx
README.linuxs
doom1.wad
libvga.so.1@
libvga.so.1.2.0*
sdoom*
sndserver*
xdoom*

i have tried ./xdoom and ./sdoom, but it doesn't work. I have tried it as root and made sure the permissions were correct.

man linux is hard.....i love it because when you finally get something to work it feels like you really accomplished something. if only I could get this to work

No offence!
Have you read the README files, and if so what did they say?
