    Default

    Please note that if you want to install any software/binary/shell script that should be executable. your file is only read-write for the owner of the file. plz apply executable permissions to it.
    Code:
    chmod +x jre-6u25-linux-i586.bin
    The try to execute as below
    ./jre-6u25-linux-i586.bin
    Thanks,
