    You don't "compile" .RUN files. These are shell scripts that are run. Apparently you got a compressed (.GZ) version of the run file. If you can't run it directly like this:

    Code:
    sh nameofrunfile.run.gz
    Then try extracting it first then running the .RUN file.

    Code:
    gunzip nameofrunfile.run.gz
    sh nameofrunfile.run

    I'm trying to install UT 2004 and I keep getting promted for CD #2. I tried with CD #2 already in the cd, I tried linking files, and I still get the same message:

    [root@jazzy ~]# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
    [root@jazzy ~]# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgcc_s.so.1/usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
    [root@jazzy ~]# cd /home/kenton
    [root@jazzy kenton]# sh linux-installer.sh
    Copying to a temporary location...
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    ./vcdk-amd64: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    I looks like you're trying to install this on a 64-bit version of Linux. Try running the install script using linux32, like this:

    Code:
    linux32 sh linux-installer.sh

    I honestly don't know what to tell you at this point. This is one reason why I generally don't install 64-bit Linux distributions.

    I am about to agree with you. I am going to try it on my 32 bit machine to see if I have the same problem.

    I know this is an old topic, but I found it while searching google. I can't get it to work, I tried what TechieMoe said and it says
    Code:
    linux:/home/kbk # sh '/home/kbk/Desktop/UT2004-LNX-Demo3334.run.gz'
    /home/kbk/Desktop/UT2004-LNX-Demo3334.run.gz: /home/kbk/Desktop/UT2004-LNX-Demo3334.run.gz: cannot execute binary file

    Have you tried putting linux32 in front of your "sh"?

    Code:
    $linux32 sh nameoffile.gz

    It says the linux32 command is not found. Also I tried extracting the file and it didn't work. Anything else?
