Hi all,

I have just re-installed my Linux system with a new version (Mandrake
10.1) when I came to put UT back on I couldn't find my GOTY disks. So, I
copied the entire UT directory from my server installation and put them
in /usr/local/games/ut on the client. When I run ut it works fine except
for the following.... If I connect to my server (or any other server
that requires a password) it asks for the password and plays. When I
reconnect to the same server it doesn't connect, it just sits on the
'connecting to etc etc' screen. If I delete my .loki directory it works
again. I have a feeling this is a permissions problem, but I cannot
figure out where.

Any ideas?
Cheers,
Drew.

Try

$ find ~/.loki -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
$ find ~/.loki -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

It's not a permission problem. Linux UT has always had a problem with
passworded servers. IIRC, it was fixed in UTPG.

Thank for your suggestion, but no joy, I think I will have to search a
bit harder for my disks.

I have a query about the UTPG patch that Ravage mentioned. Would I be
right in saying that the 4.51 UTPG parch is for my server? Or is it
suitable for the clients also?

BTW, I have found a workaround for my problem, I set up all the game
options, keys, screen setup, network etc. then made my
unrealtournament.ini read only to all users and groups. The only
downside is that I have to enter the password every time I play on my
server. Not a real problem, just an annoyance.

Cheers all
Drew.

You can give it a try.

Ok, fair enough.
