I'm running Mathematica-4.0.1 on SuSE-7.2 Linux . 
I think it was the first time I used the "Export" procedure in
Mathematica since I updated to Suse 7.2 with my new system (Dual
P3-1GHZ, 1GB Ram).
On my old computer and all earlier SuSEs "Export" worked perfectly...
So this may be a SuSE or system problem, but i am unsure :

Whenever I try to export any picture 
Export["/home/roland/test.jpeg", bild]
the error box pops up and shows :
No such file or directory
No such file or directory
and in the Notebook this is written :
LinkConnect::"linkc": "\!\(\[LeftSkeleton] 1 \[RightSkeleton]\) is
dead; \
attempt to connect failed."

I checked, the file is there : (path is correct,too)
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       370496 Jul  9 19:14 JPEG.exe* 
and it is a linux executable (despite the exe ;-) :
JPEG.exe: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1,
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

But even a ./JPEG.exe in bash yields 
bash: ./JPEG.exe: No such file or directory
(although command completion via Tab in the shell works).

I tried renaming the file, copying it to other directories, using
other shells, always the same.
After that I rebooted under 3 different kernels (2.4.7ac3, 2.4.6ac5,
Suse-2.4.4-64GB). Then I reinstalled Mathematica in a different
but nothing helps.
Does anyone know what's behind this? (It's probably just a weird
little switch that needs to be changed, but I can't think of any)
thanks for your help
