There is a Linux installer within disc 1 of Ut2k4, but when clicking it, it shortly afterwards asks for disk2, and then refuse to go any further even when disc 2 is installed...cuaght in a "install disk 2' loop!

Do the discs (all 5 or 6) require to be mounted/copied to hard disc before the install will work for Suse?

(Does SuSE have an equivalent of "add/remove programs"? Digging thru Yast and various control panel equivalents, I can't find an easy way to install anything, other than Suse updates...)

Perhaps WinXp does have some advantages afterall?

:-)

Please either post or PM me the install script ( .sh shell script I believe ).

On Linux there is no installer per se.

On SuSE you can use YaST to install software from the SuSE repositories...

When using Fedora Core you would use yum or up2date...

On Debian apt-get...

and so on and so forth...

If something is not available in the repositories you can install from RPM, DEB, PKG, etc or from source.


Commercial software often comes with an installer -- however the installer does not always work.

Make sure you get the Linux patch.

Alas, UT2k4 is only something I will be able to tackle on either of my Suse 10.0 rigs only when I am able to resolve my 9700Pro driver/OpenGL enabling issue...

or, alternatively, figuring out why my 3500+/NF4/7800GT rig only comes up after final install/config with basically a black screen and a small X in the middle! (on the positive side, at least the "X" moves with my mouse!)

(Are there known issues with detection/install of NF4 and/or 7800GT cards? the detected config shows NF4 and Nvidia video, but upon final reboot,...just a black screen with a cursor X!)

TIA

Nvidia released a new driver on Friday ( 04/07/2006 )

Make sure you grab the new driver.

[code:1:3da745e720]
uname -a
[/code:1:3da745e720]

If you're running i386 i686 etc grab the i386/IA32 version of the nvidia driver

If you're running x86_64 on AMD64 or (EM64T) grab the AMD64/x86_64 version of the driver

0. log out of the GUI

1. ALT+CTRL+F1

2. log in as root

3. init 3

4. wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/1.0-875...

5. wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-8756/N...

5. chmod a+rx NV*.run

6. if on IA32 run: ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run otherwise if on x86_64 run: ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8756-pkg2.run

7. follow the instructions

8. after it's installed run: init 5

9. log in through the GUI get a command prompt and run: glxinfo -l -v | more

10. run: glxgears -v -info

11. have fun!


If you get errors or it complains:

yum install kernel-src
yum install kernel-devel

and try again

Well, although possibly not the newest Nvidia driver for 7800GT rig, I did at least get one installed, simply by allowing the updates to occur during the initial install....(it will definitely not work with my rig in "out of the box" configuration/detection)

Thanks for your help!

(I'll celebrate a day or two, then resume tackling the 9700 Pro driver gaggle on the other rig!)

The nVidia driver installed for me without any issues.... the ATI driver on the other hand didn't :-(
