Need Help


I know this is probably going to sound like a really stupid question, but I can't find the answer anywhere else. I am trying to install Unreal Tournament 2003 demo, and the file ends with .sh.bin. What does this mean? I know I have to have came across this before. What do you do with a file like this? How do you go about installing it, and what does it mean so that I will know next time.

sh the_name_of.sh.bin
(sh is the linux Shell)

or sometime ./the_name_of.sh.bin may work.

1) type ./sh file.sh.bin (replace file with the name of the file)
2) If you get error then type
chmod +x ./sh file.sh.bin and repeat step 1

Hope that helps...

This is what I'm getting when I try the last suggestion:

linux:/home/michael/download # chmod +x ./sh ut2003demo-lnx-2206.sh.bin
chmod: failed to get attributes of `./sh': No such file or directory
linux:/home/michael/download # ./sh ut2003demo-lnx-2206.sh.bin
bash: ./sh: No such file or directory
linux:/home/michael/download #

I don't know what the deal is with this file, but I've never had this much trouble trying to install anything.

I am logged in as su, by the way.

You didn't use a very good subject in your post.

Try this way:

cd /where/file/is
chmod 755 ut2003demo-lnx-2206.sh.bin
./ut2003demo-lnx-2206.sh.bin
