what does the 'file' command report?

    23:47 ~% file /bin/ls
    /bin/ls: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

it should report something similar.  if it reports something
completely different, chances are that your executable is
corrupted, and you will need to replace it from the original
rpm/deb package.
