    Unhappy /bin/bash: ./Makefile: Permission denied

    Everytime i try to install something it wont let me all i get is error /bin/bash: ./Makefile: Permission denied Im still learning all this but what i have tried is changing the bash to 777 and setting up another user account which doesnt work at all. so no matter what im stuck on root and cant install anything

    chmod 755. You need to change the permissions

    Changing the permissions of /bin/bash are not going to effect anything, when you try to install "anything", do you mean from rpm?

    Or are you trying to actually compile?

    ./configure
    make
    make install


    etc...

    Simply changing the permissions of the script you are running will not help.;

    I was wondering that too. I bet you a donut he's using Ubuntu.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Thread derailed, and the OP doesn't seem to be posting back.

    I sense the mods are coming ... with a mallet to put this thread out of it's misery
