Having trouble with iso2opl in Linux
Having trouble with iso2opl in Linux –
I'm following the OPL guide over at SKSapps(I'm not allowed to post a link to it) and it tells me that a .iso has to be renamed to the game id for OPL to recognize it. I'm on Linux, so I downloaded the Linux version of iso2opl from that guide. I placed the binary file into my DVD folder, I cd'd to that folder, and try to run iso2opl, but terminal gives me a "cannot execute binary file" error.
I've been playing with this for a half an hour and I can't get it to work. In my file manager I right-clicked on the file, went into the Permissions tab and ticked the box to make it executable. I even chmod +x'd the file. But I continue to get the same error.
Anyone happen to know what I'm doing wrong?
you might have the device containing the folder mounted with noexec.
Hmmm...I'm not entirely sure what noexec is. I'll have to read up on it.
Anyways, another question. What command do you use to launch it, yoshi? I've just been using <path>iso2opl. Maybe I'm doing something wrong there? Admittedly I don't have a ton of experience with executing binaries on Linux so it could be anything...
Thanks for the reply.
hm same thing.
./iso2opl or <path>/iso2opl
run the mount command and look for path your dvd folder is under. if there is noexec, it might be the problem.
This is what mount is showing on my 8G flash drive:
/dev/sdb1 on /media/8G type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000,shortname=wi nnt)
So yeah, there's definitely noexec in it. Would you happen to know of the workaround?
But this is weird though as I've executed binaries before in my home path, and they worked just fine. And I've also tried to start iso2opl in my home path and I still get the same error...
maybe you are using a 64bit system ?
did you build that iso2opl from source ?
Nah. I'm on 32-bit. And no, I didn't build it from source. That sksapps guide had a link for a Windows .exe and a Linux binary. I actually downloaded them both and gave both a shot, and no go.
Well, it's not a huge deal. Although I really do appreciate your help thus far, I was just wanting to try out USB for the PS2. I'm new to the whole FMB, ESR, OPL, thing. And so far ESR has been doing great for me(I believe the only game I've tried so far that hasn't worked was Gitaroo Man, it just goes into an endless loop after a certain point in the beginning of the game). And I think I've read that games play a little slower on USB because of PS2 only being 1.1 instead of 2.0 like computers or whatever. Or at least the cutscenes are laggy, or something like that. So if discs are going to play a bit better than I don't mind burning everytime. I was just wanting to give the whole USB and OPL thing a shot.
Like I said, no biggie. But thank you nonetheless.
I would recommend trying out SMB mode if you have the stuff for it not much different then DVD and no wasted DVD's
Also if you have a PHAT PS2 the network adapter and Hard drive it runs way faster loading then DVD
SCPH-30001 with Network adapter SCPH-10281
PSP 2G 6.60 PRO CFW Perm PSP 6.20 GO PRO Perm
Official FHDB v1.92
OPL self compiled HD and SMB preferred
Is how all good gaming systems came to be
Thanks for the recommendations, RandQalan. I'll look into SMB mode and what all that is as I don't have a phat PS2.
Well if you have the slim then itīs easier, cause you have already an network-connection....
