Permission Denied installing Quake 3?


Hey all,
Even as root I cannot install Quake 3 Arena. Go figure
I have Quake 3 Arena, I copied over my Pak3 files, downloaded the demo and the latest update from IdSoftware, and I wanted to install Quake 3.
Well, in the console I type su and change to root since to install most software you need to be root. Well, I then typed ./linuxq3arenainstall.run.
Next I get a message sayin Permission Denied. Same goes when I'm a normal user.
Anyone know whats goin on?
Sincerely,
Lord Rashid

Alright, I found a PROBLEM!!!! YES, One that I cant solve with a manual. I checked. heh
Alright, I have no sound in Quake 3 Arena. It's as simple as that. I have the Hercules Game THeater XP 6.1. IT's an awesome card and Everything else in Linux works except for Quake 3 Arena and some Wine programs I got running. I'm running Mandrake Linux 9.1. XMMS, AVI's, you name it, it works except for Quake 3 Arena and some WINE apps. Seems that anything console based doesnt run sound. KDE, Gnome, IceWM, theyre all fine as long as I run sound in a GUI.
Any suggestions?
Sincerely,
Lord Rashid

Actually, it is simpler than that.

Install the 1.32b patch.

Tried all that. Actually something interesting happened. I lost most of my K menu in KDE as a basic user, I lost my quickbar, and I lost generic sound through arts I believe. But interestingly enough I have sound in Quake 3 now. It all happened literally out of nowhere when I was browsing the net.
So, I got sound in Quake 3 but now I have new problems.
Anyone know what happened here? I tried reseting my machine but I still have no links to my programs, games, applications, or quickbar.
Sincerely, the frustrated with KDE,
Lord Rashid
