I'm trying to execute the firefox binary:

root@454316a1a89a:/tmp/firefox-portable# ls -la
total 220
drwxr-xr-x  4 jenkins jenkins   4096 Mar 18 21:15 .
drwxrwxrwt  1 root    root      4096 Mar 18 21:48 ..
-rwxr-xr-x  1 jenkins jenkins 202720 Feb 21 17:47 firefox

but when I try to execute it, I get the following error message:

root@454316a1a89a:/tmp/firefox-portable# ./firefox
bash: ./firefox: No such file or directory

im trying to executing a 32-bits binary on 64-bit system, thank's @steeldriver

  • This does provide an answer: the reason executing the binary produces a “No such file or directory” error is that the user is trying to run a 32-bit binary on a 64-bit system. – Stephen Kitt Mar 19 at 13:07
