Question DivX installation woes


I downloaded the divx codec from DivX.com and extracted the tar into my usr/local directory.

However, when I type in the install script

"./install.sh"

nothing happens. Is there something wrong with the script, or am I missing out on something?

Did you run ./install.sh as root?
