I am running 9.04 right now and trying to install eldk.  To of my fellow
developers are running 8.10 and installed with no problem.  Of course, I
being different, went for the 9.04 Feisty.  When trying to install, I
get the following (verbose).

tom at tom-laptop:~$ mkdir eldk
tom at tom-laptop:~$ mkdir install_mount
tom at tom-laptop:~$ cd eldk
tom at tom-laptop:~/eldk$ su
root at tom-laptop:/home/tom/eldk# mount -o loop,exec
../eldk-arm-linux-x86.iso ../install_mount/
root at tom-laptop:/home/tom/eldk# exit
tom at tom-laptop:~/eldk$ ls ../install_mount
arm     ELDK_FIXOWNER  etc    install  README.html  sys    version
common  ELDK_MAKEDEV   icons  MD5SUM   RPMS         tools
tom at tom-laptop:~/eldk$ ../install_mount/install -v arm 

Do you really want to install into /home/tom/eldk directory[y/n]?: y

Creating directories
mkdir -p /home/tom/eldk//bin
mkdir -p /home/tom/eldk//usr/lib/rpm
mkdir -p /home/tom/eldk//usr/bin
mkdir -p /home/tom/eldk//var/lib/rpm
mkdir -p -m 01777 /home/tom/eldk//var/tmp
cp -r ../install_mount/tools/* /home/tom/eldk/
chmod a+x /home/tom/eldk/bin/rpm
chmod a+x /home/tom/eldk/usr/lib/rpm/rpmd
/home/tom/eldk/bin/rpm --initdb
sh: /home/tom/eldk/bin/rpm: not found
tom at tom-laptop:~/eldk$ 

I keep getting the "Not found".  The RPM is in the directory.  I gave
the file all permissions:

root at tom-laptop:/home/tom/eldk/bin# ls -la
total 1744
drwxrwxrwx 2 tom tom    4096 2009-04-21 11:18 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 tom tom    4096 2009-04-21 11:11 ..
-rwxrwxrwx 1 tom tom 1773156 2009-04-21 11:16 rpm
root at tom-laptop:/home/tom/eldk/bin# 

I have no Idea what is going on, and wondering if someone could help me.
If I make the file executable (or not, can't remember) I can get the
following when trying to install again:

/home/tom/eldk/bin/rpm -ihv --nodeps
sh: /home/tom/eldk/bin/rpm: Permission denied
tom at tom-laptop:~/eldk$ 

Anyone have any answers??
