Unhappy RTCW installer checksum problems

I tried installing RTCW today, and whenever I run any installer, regardless of what version, I get this error.
Verifying archive integrity...tail: cannot open `+6' for reading: No such file or directory
Error in check sums 3727475416 3031636474
Although, depending on what version of the installer I run, those two numbers change, but the top line stays the same. I've tried running it as an executable, which yielded the same result. Any ideas?

Re: RTCW install problem

I am having the same problem. I have tried from several different sources with no luck.
At first I thought it was a bad download but now I think it may be a configuration problem with newer system files like libc. Any help appreciated. I think there may be a way to untar or unzip that file and manually install. Looking into that now.

Some older `tail' implementations also support an
obsolete option `+COUNT' with the same meaning as `-+COUNT'. POSIX
1003.1-2001 (*note Standards conformance: does not allow these
options; use `-c COUNT' or `-n COUNT' instead.

Find "tail +N" (N is 6, or other number, or a variable such as $Skip) in your file, change it to "tail -n +N".
Then run the file, it may be wrong again and hint " Error in check sums COUNT1 COUNT2".
find COUNT2 in the file, change it with COUNT1.
It may work
