    Installing UT2004 on suse 9.3.......


    Hello. Iv been trying to install UT2004 on suse 9.3 and I got no clue what to do. I pop in the first CD (CD1) and open a konsole log in as root and cd /media/UT2004_CD1 and ./linux_installer.sh put in my cd key and then it ask for cd2. Well this is where I have no clue on. I pop in my cd2 and click Yes and nothing happends. I keep on pressing Yes and nothing happeneds at all. Please help I would love to play UT2004!

    I've had issues getting UT2003 and 2004 installed. Here is what worked for me:

    1) Copy the linux_installer.sh to your harddrive.
    2) As root, create a directory called /mnt/cdrom.
    3) Manually mount the first CDROM into this directory with
    Code:
    mount /mnt/cdrom /dev/cdrom
    4) Launch the installer from your harddrive.
    5) When it asks for the next CDROM, manually unmount the CDROM, insert the next one, and mount it to the same spot. To unmount the command is:
    Code:
    umount /mnt/cdrom
    Click continue on the dialog.

    This worked for me, but your mileage may vary. I think the install script assumes the CDROM will be mounted in /mnt/cdrom rather than SuSE's default of /media/.

    Ok I made the dir /mnt/cdrom but when I got to do this part mount /mnt/cdrom /dev/cdrom I get this error :

    Code:
     ip68-228-229-136:/home/adam # mount /mnt/cdrom /dev/cdrom
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    Eh?

    Is there any way to make a dir in /mnt/cdrom to be my main one insted of using /media for I don't have to always mount them?

    i had similar trouble with UT2003. try copying the install file to your computer, then putting the next CD in instead. this is how i installed ut2003 and it worked fine. also you have to unmount the disc drive before you eject it.
    Code:
    umount /media/ut2004(or whatever the disc name is)
    umount /dev/cdrom(or dvd drive or whatever)
    then insert the next cd do:

    Code:
    mount /dev/cdrom /media/UT2004_nextdisc
    and then click ok on the dialiogue box and you should have a working installation.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
