  1. Permissions Issue: Unable to Run Install

    I am trying to install a backup agent on a SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 system. I have FTP'd the media to the system. I originally tried installing the agent to a regular user's directory, but experienced the errors below. For testing purposes, I have transferred the media to the root's "Documents" folder. I need to run the "cvpkgadd" file, but am unable to do so. I've tried with the following methods, but all give varying errors:

    ./cvpkgadd
    su ./cvpkgadd
    sudo ./cvpkgadd
    su cvpkgadd
    ./sudo cvpkgadd

    I seems to be a permission issue, but I can't figure out why. I've looked at various forums, but am unable to find a solution. Below are details of the errors.

    I've also shown that I can reboot with and without sudo, but can't with su.
