Merijn download issue: bzip2

Hoping not to annoy, this is rather perl/Merijn specific:

In order to decompress perl and gcc downloads from Merijn's site I also got bzip2-1.0.2-pa2.0, which appeared to be closest to that needed for a 11.11 64 bit risc platform. When I rename it to bzip2 and chmod it to 755, it won't execute ("ksh: bzip2: cannot execute"). I am not root when I do this, but my uid owns the file.

What do I need to do?

Thanks & looking forward to a perl with some useful modules...

I used bzip2 from:

You may need root :( as it has to be swinstalled.

Re: Merijn download issue: bzip2

I thought there were non bzip2 versions on the site.

Anyway, once you install the tool you'll be able to unzip it and use the libraries.

swinstall -s /full_path_and_depot_name \*

Re: Merijn download issue: bzip2

That's strange.

What does

# file bzip2


# ls -l bzip2

give you?

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
