and look at the options of the mount for the partition containing your home. They may include an explicit or more likely an implicit noexec option. You have to look at the man page to see which options imply noexec.
What is the output of ls -al /home/edw186/BOINC/boinc ? What about file /home/edw186/BOINC/boinc ? What is on line 1 of run-boinc?
| I have recently upgraded from SUSE 10.3 to 11 (fresh install, kept
| /home, created new home directory and moved across certain stuff from
| my old home directory, but maintaining my UID).
| When I try and run BOINC from a shell (in konsole) I get:
BOINC/run_client: line 1: /home/edw186/BOINC/boinc: cannot execute
| I get the same if I try to run the boinc executable directly. Anyone
| know why?
| I does appear that some default bash settings have been changed because
| I have to hit tab twice to show up autocomplete options when there is
| more than one possibility (which is annoying too).
