Trouble with install permissions!! HELP plz!!


I was trying to install RealPlayer 10 which comes in a .bin file..

Here's what happens, how can I fix this?

Nectron@linux:~/Documents/Programs> chmod -x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
Nectron@linux:~/Documents/Programs> ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
bash: ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: Permission denied

Permission Denied is what I get whenever I use commands like:


Thanks in advance.

Not sure what distro you are using but for me as long as I download the file as myself and extract it as myself in a place that is owned by me like my home directory I have no problem using ./configure make and so on. Just need to use ' make install ' and ' rpm -ivh *.rpm ' as root. Check to see who owns the files you are trying to build.

This is the wrong command.

Try this:

chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
I hope this helps.
