mounting unreal tournament


i'm having trouble installing unreal tournament 2003 on mandrake linux 9.2 i put in the third disc and run the linux installer, once i get a gui up from the konsole i start the installation, then i get the error "Please mount the Unreal Tournament 2003 Play Disc CDRom. Choose yes to retry, No to cancel." so since i'm a noob and i don't know what mounting is, i tried putting in the first disc and just hitting yes...no luck.....the message just stays there..any help guys? thanks.

Copy the installation script to your home directory from cd3. Then take it out and put in disk one. Go to the directory where copied the installation script and run it. If all else fails, copy all of the cd's to a directory you have created and run the installation from that directory by-passing the cd's all together.

Your first suggestion should work for him...the installer doesn't work unless it's copied to a local drive, but after that it should mount/umount the cds automatically

Linux needs to 'mount' external drives to access em (maps them to the internal file structure). When you insert a CD on your computer, the OS (Redhat/Mandrake/whatever) probably automounts it. To check open your favorite file browser, and surf on over to /mnt/cdrom or /mnt/cdrom1 or /cdrom or similar (explore a bit).

Now, onto the topic, find where the cd is mounted. Open up a console window (terminal).

from wherever you are, type "su" to go to superuser (needed to install UT2003 - at least for me).

Then type /LOCATIONOFUT2003DISK/linuxinstall.sh (or whatever the install script was called, don't have my cd's handy to check).

This will open up the installer. when it asks for the disks to be unmounted/mounted, you need to type either "umount /LOCATION" or "mount /LOCATION" - this should work, but remember there are LOTS more options to mount/umount. If it says device busy, you should come back here and ask again.

I hope this helps you,
Chris

What distro are you running?

Where is the mount point to the next cd?

It might be something stupid like it doesn't look for the cd in the right place.

Update to skinny's question:

When installing UT2003, I found that if I had any terminal's open (or any programs) accessing the directory where the cd is mounted, I couldn't unmount it. Here's what you should do...I'll try to make this as step by step as possible. We're going to assume that your cd is mounted at /mnt/cdrom.

1) Close all windows that are open (keep anything from accessing the directory)
2) Insert CD
3) Open up a terminal window
4) Type "su" (go to root account, type in the password)
5) Type "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" (mount the cd device at /mnt/cdrom)
6) Check that it mounted correctly by typing "ls /mnt/cdrom"
7) Type "sh /mnt/cdrom/linuxinstaller.sh &" (replace linuxinstaller.sh with whatever the correct install script is...)
8) Installer should start up, pop up a window and such.
9) Select the place to install it (default works good)
10) Click install, and let it copy for a while, when it asks you for the next cd, type "umount /mnt/cdrom" in the terminal window from earlier
11) Eject cd, and put in next cd
12) Type "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" to remount the next cd
13) Go back to installer and click ok find my next disk or equivilant
14) Repeat for last disk


NOTES: The UT2003 linux installer is messed up in terms of calling disks by their correct names. If it rejects a disk, try the other one in the same way (unmount, remount, click ok).

When this is all done, UT2003 should be installed at /usr/local/games/ut2003 - in the terminal window, change directories over to that spot and type ut2003 and try and running it. Let us know

-Chris

yeah...I forgot about that....The Linux installer asks for incorrect CD numbers.
CD1 is listed as the play disk (or something similar), CD2 is listed as CD1, and CD3 is listed as CD2

that didn't work, the message keeps reappearing when i try that bro, but thanks for trying for me...btw i just noticed that after i run the install script from the konsole i got a message that says Gtk-WARNING **: GModule initialization check failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch), thats in the konsole and it comes up 8 times, i can still use the konsole but that message just confuses me...hehehe I also noticed that when i unmount the cdrom 'umount /mnt/cdrom' the icon labeled cdrom2 dissapears from my desktop, and when i do 'mount /mnt/cdrom' it reappears. but the icon labeled cdrom stays intact. When i unmount cdrom2, the same thing happens, cdrom stays in place and cdrom2 dissapears. But when i run 'ls /mnt/cdrom' i get a response saying its finding autorun and the install.exe....Thanks for your help and i hope you can shed some light on this.

Try completely removing the UT2003 instillation from your system manually and re-installing.
e.g. rm -Rf /usr/local/games/ut2003/ /usr/local/bin/ut2003*
Always works for me.

With Drakconf => Mount Points Section => removable media
uncheck "supermount" in option of your cddrive and check the others "user" and "noauto"
run the script for home directory as root
when he ask, mount the first cd as root and "ok"
umount
mount the second cd, etc ....
write your cd key twice and finish
in console as simple user
#ut2003

don't take care about
Gtk-WARNING **: GModule initialization check failed: Gtk+ version too old
I had this too when I install RTCW

may be
good luck again
