Installation error ??

Ok, so I try to install a software for my medion MD9781 mp3 player.

anarchy anarhistu # cd /depozit/programe/
anarchy programe # ls
anarchy programe # cd md9781manager-0.3.1/
anarchy md9781manager-0.3.1 # ls
LICENSE      README  lib             usb-hotplug  build   configure    debian        md9781-manager
anarchy md9781manager-0.3.1 # ./configure

bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

anarchy md9781manager-0.3.1 #
What does that error mean?I have no idea what to do.
My current distribution is gentoo, and I never had to use make install till now.

Thanks a lot.

try running chmod 777 on that file, it gives rwx to every user
read write execute
either that or reinstall bash

I know you've solved the problem, but I wanted to mention this...

You might be able to keep the noexec option if that's a concern for you. Instead of running the configure script as "./configure", you could try to run it as "bash configure". You would be running bash from a partition where execution is allowed, and it would read the configure script from the current partition. So you'd be executng the script without running it inside the noexec partition. I haven't done this myself, but it should work.
