Maybe there is a simple-obvious solution for this but I dont know how to make mc to be able to execute programs when I press enter/double click on it and I am not logged in as root by simple user... the executable has executable rights for all.
I get this whenever I try to execute anything by enter/double click or try to call a program from the command line. When I run the program to be executed with sudo it opens it up nicely, but I like the pressing enter method and would not like to type always the file name. Or how could I setup for some executables to execute from mc?

Here is my /etc/mc folder:

drwxr-xr-x. 121 root root 12288 Nov 14 10:59 ..
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 12278 Aug 22 2010 cedit.menu
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 788 Aug 22 2010 edit.indent.rc
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 247 Aug 22 2010 edit.spell.rc
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Oct 15 10:50 extfs
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1024 Aug 22 2010 filehighlight.ini
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 226 Aug 22 2010 mc.charsets
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 17353 Aug 22 2010 mc.ext
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 7936 Aug 22 2010 mc.keymap
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 7936 Aug 22 2010 mc.keymap.default
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 7913 Aug 22 2010 mc.keymap.emacs
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1979 Aug 22 2010 mc.lib
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 9556 Aug 22 2010 mc.menu
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 10126 Aug 22 2010 mc.menu.sr
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 6259 Aug 22 2010 Syntax

The mc from /user/bin

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 988432 Aug 22 2010 mc

For example, here is a file I would like to execute through mc with normal user:

-rwxrwxr-x 1 root hUSERS 205780 Jun 11 16:03 DBU3L

I saw in a forum a program called sam that maybe could be used, but would not like to reinvent the wheel if this could be fixed by changing some rights or mc parameters.

These are the putty log's last lines:

[?1049l>[?47l8[m$ ./DBU3L

Your mc is too old. 4.7.x is not supported anymore. Please check recent version (4.8.10).
