Yet another unreal tournament installation problem

So far, my install process has been full of errors.

I've read every thread I can find on the topic, and have managed to resolve almost all of them. The only problem that remains is that when I try to switch to Disc 1 ( yes, I know it is really Disc 2 ), the installer just mounts it, unmounts it, and tells me to insert the disk.

If any one has any ideas of how to get this to work, or ( far better ) know of a third party installer, please please please please do tell!

Many thanks,

I did not understand how you are trying to install the game . I suppose you are trying using the installer shipped into Unreal's 3rd disk right?. Well, open a terminal, and from anywhere, type:

mount /mnt/cdrom/

To mount, then specify the path to the installer OUTSIDE the cdrom directory. Let's say you are at your home, then type:

sh /mnt/cdrom/

That would do it. Just unmount the CD when you are asked for another disk (unmount /mnt/cdrom).

Again, I did not understand your problem, but most peoples have problem switching disks, because they are at the cd rom directory, and that's why they cannot unmount it.

Good luck!

try copying your installer script to your home directory. then at the terminal type:
or whatever your cd device is. eg. /dev/sr0.../dev/cdrom...etc.
(check your /etc/fstab file to see exactly what it is)

Then run the installer script from your home dir. sh
