What do you mean by "run an .so"

.so files are shared-libraries, not programs.

Do you mean when you run a program that tries to load a particular .so file? If so, the file is probably corrupted or is for a different version/flavor of the OS.

Indeed .so are shared libraries and not executables as Chris mentioned. I think the permission strategy sometimes is very strange.

If this is not the case for you why not truss the command you just want to execute, and what .so did you try to open?

truss -o outputfile THE_COMMAND

vi the outputfile, directly skip to the end of the file and use some common sense.
