    problem installing doom3-demo


    I tried it several times and I always get this error when the installation is 74% done: "loki_setup: Short write on /usr/[username]/doom3-demo//demo/demo00.pk4"
    I get this error no matter where I try to install it. The installation file is doom3-linux-1.1.1286-demo.x86.run and my distro is Mandriva2005LE. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? thanks

    My first reaction would be that you have a bad installer. You might try downloading the demo again. Also, try installing it to your /home/ directory as a regular user rather than running it as root. This may or may not make a difference, but it's worth a shot.

    Can you elaborate on what exactly you did and what exactly you got spit back? What were the error messages?

    well i tried to install it about three times, once to its default install path, once to my home folder and the other time somewhere else (can't recall where exactly) i also tried to install the binary file to somewhere else than /usr/bin/ (not that i thought it would be some good, i just wanted to try out as many possibilities as i could) any way after the first installation failed i deleted the installer file, downloaded it again and went on trying but whatever i did i got the very same error msg i posted the other time.
