Hay

I use linux 2.6.0-test9 and when I statr Uplink I got error:
bash: ./xyz: Permission denied
Binary Uplink got mods 777.
Why the Uplink don't work on linux 2.6.0-test9 ?

Have you tried installing/running it as root?

It looks like you don't have execute rights to your shell [bash] from your current user.

Uplink hasn't displayed any system-destroying bugs [or security exploits], so give it a shot.

yes I run in from the root account and I have thesame error ;(
my kernel is clean for the security patches and I have in kernel enabled the support for : elf binaries, a.out binaries and misc.

thats the worst thing a unix/linux user could do. i guess you surf the net on a root account aswell which is a big no no.

as a rule of thumb DO NOT RUN apps as root always run them as a normal user. in some cases if you have to run some apps with root right or maintain your linux box use the "SU" command. and try reinstalling uplink but delete the folder first and then do the file permissions right.
