game install problem "rtcw et"


Sorry guys noob here. I have just started using linux (2 days) and figured i would try to use kget to download a game.Well I got that done and have ' et-linux-2.56-2.x86.run ' saved along with the update in a dir. Now if i just could get it to launch the install. Unsure of the command needed. Thanks for your help.

Have you tried logging in as root ?then running ./et-linux-2.56-2.x86.run

If that fails then you need to use chmod command

Im only a noob.
Hope this helps

yes i used the su command to change to root, and it did not work either. I am not at my linux box now so i will try the chmod command later today,but first i will try what linuxbotx suggested as he is running the same distro.
thanks

and since it wasn't mentioned, you may not know, but the exact command you'll have to type :
chmod +x et-linux-2.56-2.x86.run
the x is to make it executable, and then type :
./et-linux-2.56-2.x86.run
