Can it be your system is equipped with Debian for architecture i386 ?
When I started experimenting with Linux I had a mixture of 32 and 64 bit
machines so since Jessie I've been using DVDs labeled as i386.
My primary machine is a Lenovo T510. An old www.cnet.com review says it
has a Intel Core i7 620M / 2.66 GHz.
I forgot to mention that my system is amd64.
Operator error or other?
Probably my error. I forgot the many architectures supported by Debian.
I should have advertised building from source.
So please download:
If you do not have program /usr/bin/cc yet, then install package
"build-essential", which provides the equipment for the C language.
To build your own binary, do in the directory where you have the
file make_isombr_part.c :
cc -g -Wall -o make_isombr_part make_isombr_part.c
This command should end quickly without any messages.
If messages appear, then please show them.
If all is well, a new file
is supposed to have emerged and to have rx-permissions at least
for its owner. That's your executable binary.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
There you go trying to educate me in spite of my myself ;/
Last time I compiled anything 8" floppies and 8085's were state of the
art. My employer used Intel development systems with PLM.
Have a nice day :)
