I downloaded a .bin file yesterday and I ran into a very weird problem. I downloaded the .bin file and issued the chmod command (chmod +x Savage2Install-1.5.0-i686.bin) to give the file executable permissions, and even changed the permissions to 777 (under both my username and as a root user). I check the permissions, and the permissions for the file are now -rwxrwxr-x. Which means I should be able to execute the file, but when I try (with the command ./Savage2Install-1.5.0-i686.bin), both as a normal user and as a root user, I get the following message:
I got the file installed because I moved it to a different folder, but I think the real problem is that the partition the directory is in (which is not the normal /home partition for Linux) is not allowing me to change the permissions of the files and directories on it. I’m not sure how to change this, but I have seen this happen before. Does anyone know how to change the partition setup to allow me to change my file permissions?
