I thought this was a neat program so I downloaded the file. I first su'ed into root and typed ./
and I got this output:
bash: ./ Permission denied

any ideas why?

Try 'chmod +x' and then redo the command.

Hi Matt,

Well I don't know anything about Apollon, but it sounds like file isn't set to be executable. Try a 'ls -la' and see whether or not it is. If it isn't then do a 'chmod +x' and try again.
