If you've ever installed UT on any linux distro you must be familiar with the ut-install-436.run binary.
I had installed the game with no problems almost 2 years ago on a FC4 machine with Pentium3 550Mhz and Geforce2
I have a new system now, AMD Athlon 3000+, Geforce 5900, so I had a clean FC6 install and a fully updated system through yum, and nvidia drivers for Geforce 5900
The problem is, I cant get the ut installer to run.
I had logged on as root for the whole session
I have the cdrom mounted properly, even exported the setup variable as recommended
Then I switch to /ut where the installer is
And this is what I get:
Verifying archive integrity...tail: cannot open '+6' for reading: No such file or directory
Error in checksums 889744922 2341625838
I know you think its a corrupt file but its really not! I double checked, then I redownloaded, its still the same error.
I checked out this thread too
But I decided to make another because its not really the same problem. Anyway, CaptainInsane said he had to install glib-1.2.10-23 for the installer to work.
I have glib-1.2.10-26 but could this be a problem? Should I try to find glib-1.2.10-23? Yum can't do it and I suppose if I located it on my own and forced an install it might break other things, and still not fix this.
I have no idea what is wrong. If anyone has FC6 would you just check the installer to see if it loads for you? Could an updated library break things this way?
