.bin file wont open

Postby LeifHarald on Tue Mar 24, 2009 4:17 pm

Hi! I just downloaded Savage 2: A Tortured Soul for Linux from this site. It is a .bin file. I am quite new to Linux, so i tried to open it like in Windows, but it didn't work. I allowed it to run as an executable, but still nothing. I googled .bin files in Linux and got the command for running them in Terminal.

Here is what happened:

(The file is on the desktop)

$ cd Desktop
~/Desktop $ ./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin
bash: ./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin: cannot execute binary file

I tried using $ sudo ./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin:

leif@leif-laptop ~/Desktop $ sudo ./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin
[sudo] password for leif:
./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin: 1: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

I don't think the file is broken. Any clues what to do?

Thanks in advance :D

I figured it out. I downloaded the 64-bit version, while I got 32-bit.

Sorry about that :P
