Unreal Tournament 2003


Hello,

I am trying to learn unix/linux and I figure the best way to learn a new OS is to recreate the way I learned DOS and Windows... by playing games on it!

I just installed UT2003 and the install routine finished by saying I should type "ut2003" to play so, I launched a terminal window and typed it and got : "bash: ut2003: command not found"

I installed it and am trying to run it as root

I re launched the install program to find out what directory it installed in but when I go to that dir, I do not see a file called "ut2003"

any help?

Thank you, Chris

it is most likely installed under /usr/local/games/ut2003, but if it isn't typing locate ut2003 should find it for you.

Try running it as a user instead of as root.

perhaps you need to run updatedb as root before locate ut2003 will work. Maybe it needs to rebuild the database so it can find the ut2003 file.

It shouldn't take long if you've got a fast machine (which i assume you do since your are trying to play UT2003 on it)

The link to a directory in a path is not automatically installed, and the binary is called ut2003-bin under the system directory where you installed ut2003.
However there should be a bash script called ut2003 that runs ut proberly (the ut2003-bin for example does not switch to full screen by default).

Try in the ut2003 directory:
find -type f -name ut2003 -exec file \{\} \; | grep executable

this should output all executable ut2003 files, you might want to create a link (using ln) from a directory in you're path to this binary.

I got ut2003 to work with its own installer script, and once it installed i just needed to type ut2003 to run it...
Maybe try re-installing?

making progress... not there yet

Thank you all for your help.

What seemed to work was re-installing under a non-root login.

The game seems to try to run but then I get a failure message. It flashes pretty fast but I believe it is saying it can't find a driver file for my graphics card. I am using a GeForce 3 on Redhat 8. I went to the Nvidia website and all of their drivers seem to be for RH 7.3 and lower.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Chris

Yes, download the .tar.gz packages, the kernel package builds a module against your kernel, you'll need the kernel sources and headers from your redhat install disk for this to work.

Download these two:

http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_4...-3123.i386.rpm
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_4...0-3123.src.rpm

First uninstall all previous installed nvidia drivers (if any)

Then build the nvidia kernel: rpmbuild --rebuild <path to>/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm

Install the nvidia kernel: rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.i386.rpm

Then install the GLX: rpm -ivh <path to>/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386.rpm

Then edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file and remove the line 'Load "dri"'

Then change the driver line from "nv" to "nvidia"

btw, all this needs to be done outside the X environment.
If you're logged in X, su to root and /sbin/init 3

Hope this helps

Looks like I have my work cut out for me! :)

Thank you all again for your assistance. I can't wait to go home and give your suggestions a shot!

Things I know I will have trouble with right off the bat....

How do I uninstall the old drivers?

What does this mean:
"Then change the driver line from "nv" to "nvidia" "

and this:
"and /sbin/init 3"?

Thanks again, Chris

You don't need to uninstall the "old" drivers and init 3 is console (text) runlevel.

Sorry, I am still lost.

If I understand it correctly, running "/sbin/init 3" will kill my "gnome session" and dump me to a "command line session" where I can run these rpm commands for the drivers using the bash shell?

Thanks again for your patience, Chris

Yes thats right, another way to do it is to edit /etc/inittab and change the default runlevel to 3 so when you boot your get to a text login, you can then start up gnome with the command "startx". I do it this way because it makes it easy to trouble shoot X problems. Give it a try, use midnight commander to navigate around your file system and edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, start it with "mc".

just to clarify...

I can set linux to boot into command line mode by editing /etc/inittab and change the default runlevel to 3... I got that but this part confuses me:

"Give it a try, use midnight commander to navigate around your file system and edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, start it with "mc"."

What is midnight commander, a tool to help you navigate the directory structure from the command line?

Is it installed on my system already? I did a standard "Workstation" install.

What will editing /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 do for me?

Thanks again, Chris
