Well went back and looked around at the downloads at http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux/doom/
just for grins decided to download an older file. Guess what IT WORKS!!!!!!
I downloaded the file doom3-linux-1.1.1286.x86.run ran that instead of the one that they have set as the new default file doom3-linux-18.104.22.1684.x86.run. Once I went to run it I knew it would work even though at first it dumped on me but I seen right away it had to do with the sound. Luckily I had saved the DoomConfig file from the demo.
The multilanguage.run. file that I had tried came from http://www.liflg.org/
tried that after the official file failed. At that time I hadnt seen that there where older files at zerowing
So far I am uninpressed with http://www.liflg.org/
as they are 0 for 4 on getting anything installed on my system. I tried there doom3 installer. two of there serious sam tse and one for serious sam tfe installers.
At least id had an installer that did work next time I will have to look around more if the latest does not work and try an older one.
