Medal of Honor installer, mandrake 9.2


sh ./mohaa-whatever.run - Once I type that, it just keeps asking me to mount cd2. Even when I start it with cd2 in, thats what happens. Any ideas on what Im missing? Im running it from my home directory.

haven't used this installer
but the unreal tournament installer requires supermount to be turned off and the cd's mounted manually

type (as root)
supermount -i disable
then reboot

open two terminals
in one type the installer.run command
in the other
mount /mnt/cdrom
then you can use that terminal to umount and mount each cd as required

supermount -i enable (as root) will switch supermount back on afterwards

like i say
i havent used the MOHAA installer
but it's worth a try

Thank you kindly, export SETUP_CDROM=/mnt/cdrom worked like a charm. (Its what I used to keep supermount on with ut2004) but when you mentioned the similaritys, I tried it and it worked. Your awsome, thanks again.

Question

I had the same problem with the install, and disabling supermount worked to get the install started.

However, about a quarter way through the install, it hangs up, and there is no more activity. It doesn't quit the install, it just sits there. Has anybody else had this problem, and do they know how to fix it, or what I can do to troubleshoot it? Thanks

There's a fair chance that the install is asking for the next CD, but you can't see the message box for some reason.

The traditional way around this problem is documented above in salparadise's post.

Sorry to bump this post, but I'm having the same problem in Fedora Core 2, where I start the installer and immediately get a dialog saying 'insert cd 2'. Is there a supermount in FC2 and how do i disable it? I tried the command given above but that didn't work, could not find supermount etc

Thanks

Check in /etc/fstab it might be in there under the /mnt/cdrom line (or anything with cdrom). Look for supermount. Might help.

I looked on one of the sites where you can download this installer, and there's a big old warning that it only works on the US version. Given your nick, I can reasonably suspect that you aren't in the US and might not be installing the US version of the game, despite the fact that your location is not filled in in your profile.

You might want to try the alternate perl installer also on that page linked above.

HTH.

Thanks for the replies, my fstab looks like this

Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda5               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda1		/mnt/shared		vfat	defaults        0 0
EDIT #2 Turns out the other installer doesn't require me to actually install the game, but just to copy over the game files from a windows box.

Thanks again
