I'm struggling to "get started" with GoCD and was wondering if I missed something.

I tried the latest 21.2.0 on a Linux host, both the standalone `.zip` and `apt` packages - both spat out the error message `/etc/init.d/go-server: 1: eval: /usr/share/go-server/bin/../wrapper/wrapper-linux-x86-64: not found`.

> The file is there - looks like a binary that was built with GCC. Not sure what's going on; seems too dumb to be a problem that only I've had.

(Upgrading past Java11 knackered my debian-based host somehow, so, while it reformats) I unpacked and ran the 20.5.0 server on my Windows PC fine, but, when trying to launch the agent;

- Invoking; `bin\go-agent.bat console -serverUrl=http://localhost:8153/go`
- Produces; `Was passed main parameter 'console' but no main parameter was defined in your arg class`

(I posted this on gitter yesterday without realising that was a "developers" chat, not "users" - sorry)

Hello,

Did you check the permissions on the wrapper file referenced in the error message? Is it possible that GoCD was configured to run as an unprivileged service account that does not have permission to read the file?

Regards,
Jason
