Extraction failed


when I try to install Wolfenstein - ET and Americas Army it says:

bash-2.05b$ ./armyops-lnx-170.sh.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing America's Army: Operations for GNU/Linux v1.7.0........Extraction failed.

Signal caught, cleaning up
bash-2.05b$

this goes for ET too! what is wrong?

Same for me and I'm using Mdk 9.0....

Also, I got the original .bin off the linuxformat magazine so assume there should not be any corruption in the file?

Look at /tmp when installing. Reading the source-code, it looks to be 'tar' which fails. Make sure you have ~300MB free space on /tmp and try again.

/tmp is too small

Hello, i have the problem like you but I only have 117Mb for /tmp

What do I do now? Can somebody please help?

I have 1,6 Gb free space in an other map. Can I uncompress the .bin-file in that map? How do I do that?


Please somebody help me.


Thanks in advantage

Greetings Fabio Tielen

/tmp is just a directory so you can do any of the following:

a) mv /tmp to another directory for now then set up a softlink to a driectory on a bigger partition, eg. ln -s /usr/tmp /tmp

b) set the TEMPDIR and TEMP (?) env. variables to /usr/tmp instead of /tmp which would work unless the extraction to .tmp is hard coded.

c) use fdisk or similar to make the / partition bigger (probably most permanent and a little overkill!)

Hope that helps!!
