I found a site and followed it's directions, and ran into a problem. I have posted my terminal output below. Code: [Half@FedoraCore11]~/Downloads/Mupen64% tar xvjf *here it showed my progress* [Half@FedoraCore11]~/Downloads/Mupen64% ls mupen64-0.5  mupen64-0.5.tar.bz2 [Half@FedoraCore11]~/Downloads/Mupen64% cd mupen64-0.5 [Half@FedoraCore11]~/Downloads/Mupen64/mupen64-0.5% ./configure zsh: no such file or directory: ./configure [Half@FedoraCore11]~/Downloads/Mupen64/mupen64-0.5% ./ configure zsh: permission denied: ./ this is the same result I get with any tar.xxx file. what am I doing wrong? all help is appreciated (HowTos)
