[SOLVED]Problem in executing .run file (updating PB)


Hello

I have installed enemy territory (2.6), updated to the 2.60b patch and now i get the 20004# integrity kick because i need to update my punkbuster... i tried pbweb but it didn't work, i have to update from pbsetup.run (http://websec.evenbalance.com/downlo...ux/pbsetup.run).
i downloaded the file, moved it to my PB folder and tried to run it, but i got an error saying
Quote:
Couldn't display "/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb/pbsetup.run".
i tried running with terminal but it said "permission denied".
i edited the permission to +x with chmod and now i could run it with the terminal, but still, running it does nothing. (the process runs but quits after a few seconds, i checked from the system monitor)
Quote:
artlove@artlove:/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb> /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb/pbsetup.run
bash: /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb/pbsetup.run: Permission denied
artlove@artlove:/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb> sudo chmod +x pbsetup.run
artlove@artlove:/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb> /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb/pbsetup.run
artlove@artlove:/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/pb>
then i thought that maybe if i get the PB directory (already updated) from someone it may work, so i asked someone to send me his directory, i replaced them and unfortunately nothing happened (still getting kicked).

can anyone help me? I'm desperate.

thanks

Moderators, ive posted this twice (in games forum and software forum) so mo people will see it (not everyone goes to games forum i gess), if its wrong you can delete my post and im sorry.

Try 'sh pbsetup.run'

That sometimes works when other ways fail. If not then I don't know really since you chmod'ed it.

How do you know "it does nothing"? No output in Unix world usually means "job done, no problems".

Well I just tried it too and it always says 'cannot execute binary file'. I think it's a problem with the file. I would get in touch with pb and let them know that their linux downloads aren't working.

Trying running the pbsetup.run under sudo. Even though you installed without errors, you are still running into permission issues. Installing things using an admin account often fixes these permission issues.

i tried to sudo but it didnt help =\
im waiting PB to reply on my ticket

edit: problem solved
i found the solution on the net, to uncompress the pbsetup rife i had to "upx -d pbsetup.run" and then everything ran smooth.
if it doesnt work for someone just install the package from your distro CD, it should be there.
