Unreal Tournament (original, GOTY) won't run after install


Hello, everyone. I hope someone here is familiar with running the
Windows version of Unreal Tournament (Game of the Year edition of the
original version) under Linux.

I used abfackeln's install scripts to install UT-GOTY on my Mandrake 9.2
box. The install worked flawlessly (at least, as far as I could tell),
but when I try to run the game I get the following:

Unreal engine initialized
Failed to load 'WinDrv': Can't find file for package 'WinDrv'
Failed to load 'Class WinDrv.WindowsClient': Can't find file for package
'WinDrv'
Can't find file for package 'WinDrv'
appError called:
Can't find file for package 'WinDrv'
Executing UObject::StaticShutdownAfterError
Signal: SIGIOT [iot trap]
Aborting.
Exiting.

The installation was so automatic that I can't recall having seen any
reference to this WinDrv thing. I do, however, have the following files
in my /usr/local/games/ut/System:

WinDrv.est
WinDrv.frt
WinDrv.int

There's a WinDrv.dll on my UT-GOTY disc, but copying it to
/usr/local/games/ut/System did nothing (I didn't reasonably expect that
it should).

When I try to run the uninstall script, it exits thus:

[root@localhost ut]# sh uninstall
Product: Unreal Tournament GOTY
Installed in /usr/local/games/ut
Unable to find component

If it turns out that there's no way I can run UT on this machine, it's
500+ megs of HD space that I'd like to get back (the right way, rather
than just deleting stuff). Can anyone say what's going on, with either
the execution or the uninstall? Any guidance would be greatly
appreciated; thanks very much in advance.

[OOPS! Just noticed the "Gaming" forum-- sorry for the mispost...]

I'm pretty sure that's precisely what I have (at least, the READMEs are identical). I think that abfackeln's site was acting as a mirror.

However, I used a special GOTY version of the patch file-- I wonder if it was put together by someone other than loki (I don't recall seeing a GOTY version on the loki installer page, which I cannot now find for some reason), and if I'd have any better luck trying the "plain vanilla" version.

At any rate, I'm downloading it now. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the original, apparently botched installation? Is it enough to simply delete the /usr/local/games/ut directory and any related hidden directories I can find, or are there other steps I ought to take? (remember, the install script doesn't work for me).

Again, I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

You should delete the folder where you have the game installed, the binary, usually a symlink in /usr/local/bin, and your config folder in your home directory (.ut ??). That should be enough
