you sure that you downloaded the entire script properly (is this the demo? that is probably the kind of error you get when you have an incomplete script. try redownloading

My UT experiences.

Bought UT2003. Tried every linux trick I could find in any forum and could not get it to install (it would begin the install but then fail looking for the next CD). I had a Windows (at the time) install on the same drive so I installed it under windows and copied the data files.

Downloaded UT2004 demo. ... 5 times. Each time it was reported that the download was succesful, filesize was always correct and I had downloaded versions from Atari, Nvidia, and many others. Every time the installer reported that the checksum was wrong and would cancel the install.
So I edited the installer (the first portion is just a bash script) and removed the MD5sum check. After that it installed just fine and I love playing the game under Linux.

Perhaps, (I'm imagining that perhaps you edited the installer script as well) some portion of the script got messed up when you edited it?

Also to check disk size use 'df'. If it says there is room then there is room unless you have a distro that also creates user quotas by default but I doubt it.

Secondly and more to the point would it be possible to copy the file that it fails to install by hand? Either from a friends computer or perhaps by manually extracting it from the installer archive or copying it from the CD?

Just throwing out ideas that I would try if in your shoes.
Best of luck,
jpbarto

What I had to do:

Copy the installer from the cd to HD. Unmount the cdrom.

Issue the command

sh setup.sh (instead of ./setup.sh that gave me a prob as well.)

then let the game install. NEVER mount your cds. Just replace the cd's as the game requires without mouning and all should be fine.

maybe if you:
copied all the files to your hd
export SETUP_CDROM=/where/you/copied/the/files/to
then run the installer, maybe that would work?

Just to clarify what they said.

1. copy linux-installer.sh to your desktop
2. umount the cd but leave cd 1 in the drive
3. run ./linux-installer.sh from the terminal
4. go through the options, then install, then when it asks for cds just press the eject, not the unmount, and take out cd 1, put in cd 2, and just press ok
5. repeat this through all cds, the installer mounts the cds itself
6. then it SHOULD work, unless you get a missing symbols error like which i cant solve after 9 hours! argggg!

Step by step that i wrote that will solve your problem
Code:
1). open two terminals su in both of them
2). terminal 1 #sh
3). terminal 1 #export SETUP_CDROM=/cdrom
3). terminal 2 #mount /cdrom
4). terminal 1 #/cdrom/linux-installer.sh
<When prompted for second CD>
5). terminal 2 #umount /cdrom
<Swap CD1 for CD2 here>
6). terminal 2 #mount /cdrom
7). terminal 1 <choose to continue>
rinse and repeat steps 5-7 for other 5 cd's
