Proper way to install a game from a CDR?
I'm running MDK 9.0.
It seems that everything gets automounted when boot up. Atleast I think this is what the feature is called.
Anyways, my friend gave me a bunch of games on CD and I'm trying to install these.
I stick the cd in, then from the command prompt I cd to /mnt/cdrom and do a "dir".
I check out the README file and it says to do this?
Mount the SimCity 3000 Unlimited CD and change the current directory to where
it is mounted. Type 'sh setup.sh' to run the install script.
e.g. Log in as root:
$ mount /mnt/cdrom
$ cd /mnt/cdrom
$ sh setup.sh
Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm new to linux and installing anything off of a CD.
1> I shouldn't have to "mount" the cdrom because it is already automounted because I can see the CD ICON on my desktop?? Is this correct?
2> So I "cd /mnt/cdrom" and do a "dir". Everything is appears to be there.
3>Following the directions above I type "sh setup.sh"
4>I here the CD player start huming away and then I get a GUI setup dialog box...
"SimCity 3000 Unlimited Setup"
Install path: /usr/local/games/SC3U
Link path: /usr/local/bin
I check all options and click on "install" button
The CD starts humming away and then on the command line I see a ton of the following spew out so I cancel the intall becaue it looks like something is wrong... Is there?????
Example: And there's literally hundreds of these so I'll just do a few examples....
Unable to find file 'res/ui/shared/sys/453ba1dd_chatmediumback.bmp'
