Neverwinter Nights installation problems


First, when I view this forum, I only see 9 of 9 entries, none of which are related to NWN. When I click to find similar threads, I get 5 NWN entries which the links at the top appear to indicate they are here. Where are they?

I'm trying to install NWN using files from www.icculus.org/~ravage/nwn/ and not having any luck. When I execute
Code:
$ ./nwn_129_final.run
I get an 'unpacking' message but I see no change in the directory.
When I run
Code:
$ ./nwn_129_english.run
I get an error message that loki_patch cannot be found.

The other posts show installation is possible. What am I missing?

Thanks
Jim

with a .run, there's usually a script and binaries in one. You can try

./nwn_129_final.run --explode (or /explode) and see if you get the thing in a dir, and then you can poke around.
