It sounds like the media wasn't copied over correctly to the linux host. Especially since you had to run chmod to begin with. This should normally not be needed. Try this...
Using the bootstrapper downloader, download the SW for Linux and select the option to create the "tar" file during the download. This will leave you with an additonal file on your windows workstation where you downloaded the SW. The file will look like this: CVDownloads.tar
Copy that file over to the linux host, and then unpack it locally there using the "tar" command:
# tar xvf CVDownloads.tar
This should unpack the media to a CVDownloads directory. Then "cd" into that directory and run the installer: "./cvpkgadd"
Let us know if this works...
