Running Textmaker in x86-64 versions of Linux??

Post by roadkill » Mon Jan 01, 2007 4:57 am


Installed the trial version for Linux as per instructions but it will not run.
Instead I get:

./textmaker: No such file or directory

I ran "file" on textmaker and it told me:

textmaker: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, stripped

So I figure that Textmaker is compiled for i386 and is not finding the 32-bit ABI on my Linux system for some reason.

Any thoughts?
What about a 64 bit build?

You're right, that executable is for x86 Linux only. However, if x86 compatibility libs are there, the software should work fine.

Are there any other users out there not able to run this x86 executable on x86_64 hardware (with compatibility libs)?

I don't know for Linux, but for FreeBSD I think it is optional, so you may have an AMD64 install without the i386 libs.
