Default Bowtie Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.

Hi, I am new to bioinfromatics and bowtie so please excuse me if this is a simple question.

I have bowtie on a linux server, navigate to my bowtie directory and try to execute the command "bowtie" and/or "./bowtie" . I get the following:


.../.../.../bowtie-0.12.7/bowtie: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.

I don't know what this means exactly. Somebody had suggested to me that perhaps the program cannot be run on a linux machine, but the bowtie documentation indicates otherwise.

Is there something obvious I am missing?

Cheers,
T

Your copy of BowTie was compiled for a different sort of computer, e.g. 64 bit not 32 bit, or Mac not Linux.

Check where is came from, they may provide althernatives more suitable - otherwise you can compile it yourself.
