installing enlightenment

I´m trying to install ENLIGHTENMENT on my machine (Intel Pc -Pentium 120 Mhz, 16 Mb RAM ), using a Monkey-Linux distribution and the RPMs binaries of Enlightenment, but I have a very strange (I think is strange) problem:

After install using rpm -Uvh --nodeps *.rpm, I got the executables in
/usr/local/enlightenment/bin/ , that is, dox* and enlightenment* but when I wanted to run either enlightenment or dox the system gives the following messages:

./enlightenment: no that file or directory  
./dox: no that file or directory

   
P.S.: My system have glibc1.

Look inside the files themselves - the first line looks like #!/bin/whatever (the interpreter, probably tcl or something like that) - it is pointing to something that isn't there.

When I look inside the files these are unreadable and I can´t found anything like
#!/bin/whatever.

Are you in the /usr/local/enlightenment directory, or is it directory in your path?

The only time that I have seen that "No such file or directory" when the file is obviously correctly specified is when there is a conflict between libc types.  If you do in fact have libc6 (glibc) installed correctly, the problem is most likely that the RPMs that you obtained for Enlightenment contain binaries that were compiled for libc5.  Try doing a "ldd <binary>" on each of the binaries in question.  If you see something looking for a libc5, you know that's the problem.

When using libc5 my system could not recognize the files, but I changed
to glibc2 (libc6), after they  ran sucessfully.
