Sublime Text 3 - cannot execute binary file

Sublime Text 3 - cannot execute binary file

Postby peter on Thu Jul 18, 2013 12:01 am

I previously had Sublime v2.0.1, which expired. I generally have no issue with betas, so decided to get the beta of version 3.
I run a Debian distro of Linux (Kali). I downloaded the tarball, uncompressed it and when trying to fire it up, simply get a 'cannot execute binary file' error. There's no source for to compile or make, so I'm at a bit of a dead-end. Anybody else gotten this working on a Debian distro? Am I missing some package or something?

What architecture is your system vs. the executable? (32- or 64-bit?)

n/m. Good call. Every other VM I run is 64-bit. I answered, then doubled checked and this distro is 32 bit. Downloaded the 32 bit tarball and all works perfectly. Thanks.
