Thumbs down console not cooperating


I've just gone from RH8 to SuSE8.1

The console in suse gives an error "/bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied" when i "./configure"
i was in a directory containing configure files.

Also have a general question what problems should i be looking fore if I've never gotten a "make" type install to work. i remeber seeing something about setting envioronment variables. What if anything is this about?

thanks alot

if it works as root it's just a permissions problem.

I took a look at /bin/bash and /bin/sh in konqueror, and /bin/sh is just a link to /bin/bash . Do i remember a bash2 from RH8? can or should i install this in suse?

it seems like there must be something wrong with the configure script


try to execute a simple script
create a file that contains something like this


#!/bin/sh
echo Hello


then set it's permissions

chmod 755 filename

then try it

./filename
