    The installer uses X Windows, which isn't allowed with regular su privileges. Try this:

    Code:
    xhost +
    su
    password&#58;<root password>
    Then run the SH file.

    You can install the Quake 3 demo into your home directory as a regular user. Try running the SH file without logging in as root and see what happens.

    Does the window close on its own? It should stay up for a bit and then a separate install window will pop up.

    It comes up for less than a second then disappears by itself.
