can not install Quake3 demo on Redhat Enterprise WS - 4

I just installed redhat enterprise ws verison 4 , and installed ATI driver for a 9200 se. I installed UT2004 demo , and works fine, but can not install
quake 3 demo. I tried sh , didn't work.
opening the archive will fail, and some error. I could install it on redhat 9 easy. Let me know if any other 3D demo works on rehl-ws-4

Thanks for help

If unpacking the archive doesn't work, I would *guess* that the archive is broken. Try getting a new one

There is a problem with q3demo on certain distros. The workaround as i remember is to add a flag called -keep (might be something else tho) when you install it, then when it fails, cd to the dir created and re run the install from there.

Installing ATI Linux display driver

sorry for delay

To install ATI driver
1- using ATI Driver Installer
download ATI Driver Installer here:

open a terminal and run:
/usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial

the above instruction is in release notes at ATI web site:

2- using rpm
first check which XFree86 or Xorg server you have then download the right driver. then open a terminal

rpm -Uvh fglrxATIdriver.rpm
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
sh or ./
cd ..
sh or ./
/usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial

for older driver which used fglrxconfig instead of aticonfig
the last two steps are:
(answer the question mostly go by default)
