./configure Bad Interpreter


Recommended Posts

I'm installing imagemagick

Iv'e ssh into my server cd /tmp wget "url" then tar xvfc the archive , cd /imagemagick ............. now I try to run ./configure , and i get a bad interpreter permission denied error

i thought it might be because i am running ssh as root ?

Any idea ?

I don't want top start playing fun w/ root permissions so an help will help


the host is keen on security , so the /tmp directory is mounted with /noexec , to prevent certain exploits. I had to remount the directory

mount -o remount,exec /tmp
And make sure to remount again to /noexec
mount -o remount,noexec /tmp

Dunno why i didnt think of that , but hey
