Can't run XAMPP 64 bit linux installer on WLS

Postby tasso85 » 18. December 2017 12:32

I was trying to install the 64bit linux version of XAMPP via its ".run" installer on a machine running Windows 10 PRO 64bit, installing it on the WLS (Windows Linux Subsystem).

While I do understand that WLS is still in beta phase, I expected this to work, especially since that, if I install it on a CentOS 7 virtual machine, TAR the installation dir and move it on WLS, it works perfectly.

Trying to run the installer gives this error:

root@TMA:/opt# /root/temp/
-bash: /root/temp/ cannot execute binary file: exec format error

Testing the installer with file command gives:

root@TMA:/opt# file /root/temp/
/root/temp/ ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (GNU/Linux), statically linked, stripped

While the "kernel" identifies as:

root@TMA:/opt# uname -a
Linux TMA 4.4.0-43-Microsoft #1-Microsoft Wed Dec 31 14:42:53 PST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

root@TMA:/opt# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

So it seems that both executable and kernel are 64bit... What am I missing?
