Cannot ./configure


to be able to monitor my cpu's temperature I need to install a small utility. To install this I first need to instaal nasm. However, after downloading and uncompressing it when I execute the ./configure command it comes back with the following error:

bash: ./configure: bad interpreter: permission denied

Why is this?

Thanks in advance

So far as I remember I had such error message when logged in as root I tried to compile a program installed in an other user's home directory.
I copied the files to an other directory, and did the compilation there.
