I modified a .bin file for the software ELAN so the path to one of my libraries is correct (after installation, ELAN can't find the library because the path is not right). So I used Emacs to correct this.
But when I use the commands to install the .bin file:
sudo chmod +x ELAN_440_linux_novm_install.bin ./ELAN_440_linux_novm_install.bin
I get the error message:
Preparing to install... Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive... The size of the extracted files to be installed are corrupted. Please try to download the installer again and make sure that you download using 'binary' mode. Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.
This is probably because I added a few characters to the problematic string.
Is there a way to force the installation, as I know that the file wasn't corrupted before I edited it?
