Question Problems Installing UT2003


I'm having problems installing Unreal Tournament 2003. I change to su in a console (SuSE 9.0) and run sh /media/dvd/linux_installer.sh an End User Licence Agreement appears in the console window and nothing else. Where do I go from here? I REALLY need to get this working as its now my last bit of software I run under Windows. If I can get this going I can fully wave goodbye to M$.

Thanks in advance for you help

Steve

when i installed ut2003 i copied the installer to the harddrive
and executed it from the command line as root, with disk 3 still in the cd drive
(it goes through the disks in the following order - 3,1,2,3)
(as far as i remember it worked ok - i didn't stick with suse too long as it crashed a lot and kept losing the nvidia drivers)

As long as you're not running the installer from within the CD mountpoint you shouldn't need to copy the installer to your hard drive.

As for the issue with the license agreement, that's displayed in less. Use your arrow keys to scroll through if you want to read it, or press Q to cancel. When it goes away you'll be asked if you agree to it.
You may get a permissions error when it attempts to launch a graphical installer as root....you can ignore this, as the installation will successfully run without the graphical interface.

did you manually mount the CD? There's no need to do that, since the script automatically mounts and umounts the disks as it needs them.

I know this isn't probably the best place to post this but, I am also trying to install ut2k3 on mandrake 9.2 i get console warnings about gtk version too old. I installed 2.3 and it still says gtk version too old. Plus, when I agree to user agreement it prompts me for "play disk". No matter what cd I put in, I prompts with the same message over and over.

Thanks in advance...

Well I haven't had any luck with anything yet. But I did find in the readme file this link....

http://icculus.org/lgfaq/

not a whole lot of info but it does provide some reasons to why we have to run the extra commands...

If you find anything out, please post so I know as I will do the same..

good luck

I've got ut2003 installed now. copied the install file to hard drive first. However.... quite poor graphics performance (I have the nVidia drive installed Tux racer etc works great) and very distorted sound. The sound is also slightly speeded up!!! is this a sample rate problem or something else, any ideas folks?

Ok,
so when you say:
export SETUP_CDROM=/path/to/setup/files

is that the path to linux_installer.sh
or the path to my cdrom or what?

I too are having problems, even when I followed these instructions here
http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=4578
it just doesn't work!
I have to run in root for everything because I can't run in a normal user becuase of write permisions.
