Quake2


I am trying to run Quake2 (installed from Mandriva RPM) and I get the following error:

Code:
[rzaleski@Desktop ~]$ quake2
Quake 2 -- Version 3.21+rCVS
Added packfile ./baseq2/pak1.pak (279 files)
Added packfile ./baseq2/pak2.pak (2 files)
using /home/rzaleski/.quake2/baseq2/ for writing
execing default.cfg
couldn't exec config.cfg
Console initialized.

------- sound initialization -------
sound sampling rate: 11025
------------------------------------
------- Loading ref_softx.so -------
LoadLibrary("./ref_softx.so")
No joysticks found
recursive shutdown
Error: Couldn't load pics/colormap.pcx
[rzaleski@Desktop ~]$
I have also tried sdlquake2, but I get the same error. I tried searching the issue, but cannot find anything useful. Help!

Your pak0.pak file is missing from the baseq2 directory.
Code:
Added packfile ./baseq2/pak0.pak (3307 files)
You must copy this file from the ID software Windows install CD, there is probably a readme somewhere in your documentation that describes what must be copied and where to put it. These files won't be in the RPM.

I though Quake II was free (as in beer).

As with most ID games the runtime engines / binaries are free (and often open source) the content, maps, levels etc are not, those you have to buy.

I though I read somewhere that older versions of Quake are released, free (as in beer). Oh well. I was unaware. Thanks for the info.
