Here is a dumb question. How do I implement .bin files?


I can't figure out how to use .bin files. I'm using redhat and the java rpm is tied up in this .bin file. How do I get it to install?

If its executable, you just run it from a terminal or command.

./<filename>.bin

to make it executable if its not:

chmod +x <filename>.bin

This works for me:

$ chmod 777 filename.bin
$ ./filename.bin
