I am trying to install l_fc_c_9.1.036 under a Cygwin shell running within WinXP. On attempting to run the script ./install.sh after untaring the gz archive in the install directory, I get the following message:
Software packages installed as RPMs are available system-wide.
We recommend that you install the software using RPM.
This requires use of root privileges on your system.
To continue, we suggest you login as root or
use an account that can sudo root commands
How would you prefer to proceed? (root/sudo/ignore) [ignore]:
Proceeding with non-root installation.
./secore: ./secore: cannot execute binary file
As far as I know, "root" and "super user" have no meaning in Cygwin. The executable secore fails even when invoked directly from its directory instman. Other Cygwin executables run OK.
I have successfully installed and usedthis package on my Linux box running SUSE 10.1.
Thanks for all and any help.
