Error on my end or root perms

Hey there, when I tried to run alpine linux, it told me

Line 2: Permission Denied

Is this because I dont have root? Or is this an error with my code? Please someone help me out, ty!

easy fix

chmod +x ./alpine.iso

reason: bash, like windows, makes you do a 'prompt' for some executables.
So you have to 'accept' the 'prompt'.

if it still doesn't work then ig replit hates alpine


@Coder100 I got an error that the Binary file could not be executed, but I think I already know whats the issue, ty for the help

why linux? i thougt it was a hacking site or thing


@P0GCHAMPB0i Cuz you can run linux root inside of linux no-root, all without breaking the replit TOS.

Anyways do you know?
