I'm trying to install XFree86 4.1 on RedHat 7.0, and after downloading
all the tgz files, I try to run Xinstall.sh, and I find that "extract"
for glibc2.1 will not execute.
So I picked up every version there is for extract, glibc20, glibc21,
glibc22, libc5, and NONE of them will execute. Each one produces:
./extract: Permission denied.
I've tried "chmod 755 extract". I've tried using ldd (which only works if
the executable executes. I've done everyhing but setuid root to make the
utility execute. VERY weird.
What am I doing wrong? Can every version of extract at www.xfree86.org
really be broken? Is the fix to compile the code myself? Or go get a
copy of "extract" from an older version of XFree86? Or is that just
asking for trouble?
