executing binary problems.
I got 2 new softwares that won't work , I got realPlayer10GOLD.bin , and i also got, Win4Lin 5.0, which uses, win4lin-installer,

1. when I type sh win4lin-installer it says (cannot execute binary file

2. when i type sh realPlayer10GOLD.bin it says the exact same thing as above ^

3. When I type ./win4lin-installer it says, Permission Denied (when I'm root)

4. when i type ./realPlayer10GOLD.bin it says the same thing as #3, though I'm root

I'm using gentoo, and i dont know the problem, is there a package needed to be emerged? or something, please help.

Do you know if the files are executable? You can make them executable with:

chmod a+x <filename>
Then if you run ./whatever it should run I think.
