UT2003 upgrade problems here
 
Let me start off by saying that I am in NO WAY a guru when it comes to linux

That being said.....

Im running Mandrake 9.0, Newest nVidia drivers (4191's), Installed the drivers via this walk-thru (http://www.speculation.org/garrick/nvidiainstall.txt), All went well, The game ran so awsome.......

Now, I need to get to the origins of My problem here, I had borrowed a frinds copy to verify that it actually was able to be installed on linux & run good.....

So it did & I went & bought My own copy...

Me being a newb to linux didnt know that it has un-installs like Windows & just deleted the entire directory & tried re installing the game again....


Install was screwy & I had to find out where it was keeping setting that lingered over from the 1st install & get rid of them by deleting all the contents of /.ut2003 in root & My home directory

Now that being cleared up & did a full re install & the game again runs like nice, No glitches except for the whole reason I am here.....................

I donloaded the newest verion on the patch "ut2003lnx_full2166.sh.bin", tried to install & got the following results......


[root@localhost UT2003linuxup]# ./ut2003lnx_full2166.sh.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Would you like to read the README for this update? [Y/n]: n

Would you like to apply this update? [Y/n]: y

================================================== ===========
Performing update:
ERROR: No matching delta for /home/qwiqshot/games/ut2003/System/XWebAdmin.u
The program returned an error code (3)
[root@localhost UT2003linuxup]#


so I said hell maybe it was a bad file & dowloaded it from another site & got the same results, So I went & got the even newer one that just got released "ut2003lnx_full2186.sh.bin"

now when I tried running this file at 1st wouldnt even let root run it until I set the privilages the same as the other one & even then it shows up as brown text instead of the usual green like the other one does....

Anyways, Here is what I get when I try installing that upgrade

[root@localhost UT2003linuxup]# ./ut2003lnx_full2186.sh.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Any helpful tips other than try re installing the game would be greatly appreciated guys/gals

P.s. notice that the differance between the 2 is very slight

One asks for
XWebAdmin.u & the other asks for
XInterface.tmt

Probably a stupid reply, but I noticed you're running as root, and I thought that UT2003 is fully installed in the user's home directory?

Can you try running it as qwiqshot?

Qwaz 02-12-03 04:58 PM

Runs under both Root & qwiqshot

I installed in via root incase My nephews come over & want to play, All I will have them do is log in as a guest & they will have access to the game

The upgrade is the only issue I am haveing troubles with at this time

If any of your files have been edited, that will cause this problem. I sometimes edit the startup script in the game directory with:

xgamma -gamma X.X

if the game doesn't have any option to change brightness in the game or add other options that can't be changed in the game.

If in doubt, delete the whole game directory, reinstall and apply the patch. The game files are kept in your home directory so you won't loose them.
