nwn problem

Sorry to bother you with a new problem from a totally newbie in linux:
I tried to install NWN from a previous windows installation... I followed the instruction from their site, I copied the folders necessary, downloaded the files for linux... when I ran ./fixinstall it gave me bad interpreter...this I resolved with the advices from this site ... (sh ./fixinstall) and it worked... but when I try to run ./nwn, I get the following error "./nwn: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied)... I try with sh ./nwn and I get this: "./nwn: line 12: ./nwmain: Permission denied" . If I try sh ./nwmain, I get "./nwmain: ./nwmain: cannot execute binary file"

at line 12 in nwn file I see: " ./nwmain $@"
Can anyone help me?

I don't know if this'll help you or not...

I found installing NWN using the Linux client (with the Rage? installer) worked out great. However, let's see if we can fix your problem without having to do that...

Are you actually within the NWN directory when you execute that, or are you doing that to a symlink you made? Try this:
cd /usr/local/games/nwn (assuming that's where you installed it to)

If you get errors still, post up the permissions of the files in that directory:
ls -lh /usr/local/games/nwn

Finally, have you seen the forums for the linux group:

Hello again
The problem I had was solved by moving the game to my linux partition. I was hoping that I could play this game directly from a windows partition (I'm still interested in how could I do that). Anyway, I moved the game and everything was allright, I entered the mainscreen, but when I try to start a new game, load or change the options, I'm kicked out to console with the following error
./nwn: line 12: 6391 Trace/breakpoint trap ./nwmain $@

My pc is an athlon 1800+, Maya Radeon 9000Pro (with the drivers from Schneider, installed exactly as you described on this forum; but my driver doesn't seem to work very well with XFree86 4.3.0 on my suse 8.2, I mean I have zounds of FPS in Gears, but when I try to play a 3D game, I'm kicked and my screen remains in a "virtual resolution" even if I deselected that option)
thank you again;
