    Installing .BIN in YDL 5 on PS3


    I have a Sony Ps3 Running Yellow Dog Linux, i am useing the KDE interface, and i am trying to install a bin file. I have no clue how to go about doing this although i have tried and failed. I am a total linux newb, but i do have quite a bit of expirience with windows and mac osX. When i try and install this file through terminal it says permission denied. but i have the permissions set to read and write for everyone. Please help me install this . bin file

    From A command line you will need to be root, cd to the dir were the file is. At the command line prompt # chmod 755 filenname.bin

    My file is located at
    /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin
    i typed in
    chmod 755 /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin
    and it gave me no message and just gave me a new line int he terminal
    then when i entered in the file name it said cannot execute binary file
    did i do this all right?
    what can i do to resolve this new error?

    at the command line
    type ls -al /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin you should get back
    rwx-r-x-r-x davidw davidw time date stamp RealPlayer.bin
    to execute ether change to the dir /home/DavidW/Desktop/ and type this
    ./RealPlayer.bin or from where ever your at type ./home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin
    the program should install now. you do not need to be root to execute the file, as long as the owner ship and group are davidw

    [DavidW@localhost ~]$ ls -al /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 DavidW DavidW 5802563 May 12 2007 /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin

    [DavidW@localhost ~]$ /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin

    bash: /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin: cannot execute binary file

    this is exactly what i got... any ideas? is it the binary file?
    maybe i cant install it because my architecture is ppc64 not iX86

    to execute the file you need a dot in front of the slash like so ./
    this file is a install file. I would move it from your desktop to you home dir
    because it is going to make a directory for the realplayer. .
    type this from the command line the tild ~ means home so the system will move the file to /home/DavidW
    mv /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin ~
    now type
    cd /home/DavidW
    now type
    ./RealPlayer.bin note dot before slash if you forget the dot you will get the error from bash.

    as far as the architecture this does not matter, the linux commands do not change because the architecture is different.

    Also, take a look at this thread, especially the part about installing .bin and .sh files.

    [DavidW@localhost ~]$ mv /home/DavidW/Desktop/RealPlayer.bin ~
    [DavidW@localhost ~]$ cd /home/DavidW
    [DavidW@localhost ~]$ ./RealPlayer.bin
    bash: ./RealPlayer.bin: cannot execute binary file



    I included a screenshot to show you i have done what you explained.

    Do you have any ideas as to why it doesnt work?
    and my reference to the architecture was saying maybe this isnt workign because the program doesnt support PPC64
