This is not a .run file. This is a bin. How do I run it?

I failed to install warsow 0.5 from their website so I googled it and found a link that lead to this file where they promised a .run file. But there is only a .bin file. How do I run a .bin file Mandriva 2009.1 KDE

It does but you did not do what rettichschnidi wrote.

Code: Select all

cd /home/fag/Download/ &&
chmod u+x warsow_0.5-english_x86_64.bin &&
./warsow_0.5-english_x86_64.bin
