Most likely mounted with noexec.

could be also /sbin/mount or you are in a special environment, where no mount exists.

Quote:
cat /proc/$$/mounts
cat: /proc/30800/mounts: No such file or directory

does /proc exist?

env /lib/ld-linux.so.2 ~/murgaLua
env: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: No such file or directory

is this a Linux system after all? (and not a Slowaris or HP-SUX or something else?) what does uname -a say? (or env /bin/uname -a)

No luck. In the past when I've asked why there is no gcc compiler or why I can't install software or execute programs, the answer is always that some people have abused the privilege. I've never been able to get a specific answer as to what the abuse was. I suspect they just want to discourage you from using cpu cycles and bandwidth unless you want to upgrade to one of their more expensive deluxe hosting packages.

If you can run binaries, then you can install nearly everything. It would be possible to install something like OpenOffice and run it remote or install a file sharing client, organizing a botnet, sending out spam, ... , jeopardizing system integrity and doing all sorts of nasty things.
And traffic accounting and bandwidth limiting could also be bypassed.

In my case, I just end up burning cpu cycles and bandwidth with awk or python instead of murgaLua.

Python is not that bad. And it would be a lot better, if it wouldn't use the indentation nonsense ;-)
