Check that /home/jeff/bin/lout has execute permissions.  If it does, /home might have been mounted with 'noexec' option -- that will prevent any executables from running.

Hi!

Just installed it with simple 5 commands (# represents root prompt):

#tar zxvf lout-3.38.tar.gz
#cd lout-3.38
#make
#mkdir -p /home/jeff/bin
#make install

The last lines of 'make install' is give below:

(c) Initializing run (should be silent, no errors expected)
/home/jeff/bin/lout -x -s /home/jeff/lout.lib/include/init

(d) Changing mode of files just created by initializing run
chmod 644 /home/jeff/lout.lib/data/*
chmod 644 /home/jeff/lout.lib/hyph/*


If you have any problem in being root still it should work.

Thanks,

--S
