Help installing calibre-0.6.39-i686.tar.bz2

I need to install calibre on a secure RHEL 3.5 system with no Internet connectivity and no GUI. I can untar calibre-0.6.39-i686.tar.bz2 but I don't know what to do next. Reading the documentation, searching the calibre website and the Internet does not turn up any clues. I assume this file is the binary install. I must be missing the obvious.

that's all you really need to do. The executables are in the untarred folder, try running them.

Thats what I did before making this post. I am thinking that my dependent software has the wrong versions. You have documented that the Segmentation fault can be ignored (although I wonder if is connected with the batch file problem on Windows). Ebook-convert works for this file on windows. Here is a list of what I did:

# cd /opt
# mkdir calibre
# cp /root/calibre-0.6.39-i686.tar.bz2 /opt/calibre
# tar -xjf calibre-0.6.39-i686.tar.bz2
# cd /root

# PATH=/opt/calibre:$PATH

# ebook-convert --version
ebook-convert (calibre 0.6.39)

# ls *.epub

# ebook-convert 9780977356713.epub 9780977356713.mobi
/opt/calibre/ebook-convert: line 11: 2144 Segmentation fault $loader "$@"

# ls *.mobi
ls: *.mobi: No such file or directory

the segfault can only be ignored if it happens at the end of the process. In your case it's happening at the start.
