Question Permission denied on OpenBSD 6.1

Hi everyone,

I got "Permission denied" when running a file. I checked the file permission and it already had the right to execute. Can anyone help me solve this issue?

Not without much more information.

What do ls(1) and file(1) say about your file? What is it's full path name? What is your shell's $PATH, and what command string are you using?

Also check the output of dmesg to see if it's a W^X violation. Did you forget to add wxallowed to the filesystem mount options?

And ... the file could also be located within a noexec mount(8) point. Or, it could be a script pointing to an invalid #! path.

There are many possible reasons for failing to execute something.

Things to check:
Normal file permissions
ACLs
Path

and it can be calling something else that fails and raises the error.

I will guess that notooth discovered the root cause of the error, since we have not heard anything for two weeks.
