    file /usr/local/bin/*****X

    This is what it gave me...

    /usr/local/bin/*****X: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, Alpha (unofficial), version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

    That means you downloaded a version for Alpha, and I'm guessing your not running an Alpha CPU, but something Intel compatible, right?

    In that case, you should download the i386 package. The source code will always work.

    i386

    Thanks, I forgot I had installed the wrong binary at first. Then I installed the i386.rpm without removing the files from /usr/local/bin. Thats why it wasnt working I removed those files uninstalled and reinstalled the i386 rpm and it worked fine. Thanks
