Verify that the installation binary has execute permission. If it does not, use the chmod command to make it executable.

$> chmod 755 A50057r6.bin
2. Set your $DISPLAY environment variable
export DISPLAY=<your_node_name>:0
3. Execute A50057r6.bin
<path_to_downloaded_file>/A50057r6.bin
    For example:
./A50057r6.bin

This will initiate the installation wizard, which will guide you through the hot fix installation process. During the installation you will be prompted for the SASHOME location to be updated. You should provide the path to the top level SAS directory where the deploymntreg directory exists.
