Angry I can't extract Enemy territory


I can't extract game Enemy territory. I don't now where is problem.
I downloaded file et-linux-2.55.x86.run from 5 different sites and always say this:

[vikinko@vikinko wolf]$ ./et-linux-2.55.x86.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Enemy Territory 2.55................................................................................................ .................................................................................................... .................................................................................................... .........................................................Extraction failed.
Signal caught, cleaning up

File size is 270.588.258 Bytes, to download I use Downloader4X and no errors occurs during download. And my hdd dont have bad blocks.
Thanx.

Solved my own problem.... seems that my /tmp directory is on a small sized partition. Both ET and AA use the /tmp directory by default to
extract the temporary files to. So, solution is to change the temporary directory to somewhere with more hard drive space. In my case, I did
sh whatever_the_installed_is.run --target /opt/tmp

This worked for both ET and AA.
