Extracting .bin file failes > too small /tmp map


I have the following problem::

I wanted to install America's Army Operations DD Server

So I downloaded the file and started the install with the commando: ./armyops190-linux.bin

Verifying America's Army: Operations for GNU/Linux...... Extraction failed.
.Signal caught, cleaning up

The problem seems to be that my /tmp map is too small (only 117 Mb) and I need at least 300 Mb. But I have an other map "/extraction" and here I have 2 Gb free space.

How can I extract the file to "/extraction"? If it's possible

Thanks in advantage

I don't know the thing you're trying to install,
but the first thing I'd do is to check whether
it's a "self-extracting" shell-script by doing
Code:
head -n 20 ./armyops190-linux.bin
If this produces sensible output, just use your
favourite editor (awk, sed, emacs ... ) to modify
the path it extracts to ;)

Cheers,
Tink

Thanks

It actually shows me a lot of information.

It says the following:

This script was generated using Makeself 2.1.3

Now i started editing the file with vi

Thanks for your help



Keep up the good work
