General

Besides the installer, what else do i need to install my game?

Most of our installers, will ask you for the cd or the dvd of the game. So you will need the original discs the game came on.

If the installer still does not find the cd?

Make sure your kernel has "Joliet extensions" enabled.
("Filesystems" -> "ISO 9660 CDROM file system support" -> "Microsoft Joliet CDROM extensions"

MojoSetup-Installers specific (*.mojo.run files)

How to use the installer?

Type following commands in a shell:
chmod u+x installer.mojo.run
./installer.mojo.run

The installer does not find the cd.

First try to export the CD-ROM environment variable:
export MOJOSETUP_MEDIA0=/path/to/your/mounted/cdrom/

Loki-Installers specific (*.run files)

How to use the installer?

Type following commands in a shell:
sh installer.run
or
chmod u+x installer.run
./installer.run

How to use the installer on 64 bits CPUs/Distributions?

Some older installers do not have native x86_64 support,
you will need the linux32 tool (ftp://ftp.x86-64.org/pub/linux/tools/linux32/).
Type following commands in a shell:
linux32 sh installer.run
or
chmod u+x installer.run
linux32 ./installer.run

The installer does not find the cd.

First try to export the CD-ROM environment variable: (Especially for auto/supermount users e.g. Mandrake).
export SETUP_CDROM=/path/to/your/mounted/cdrom
FreeBSD users:
setenv SETUP_CDROM /path/to/your/mounted/cdrom

After the installer extracted the files, it can not find some of them?

By default, the installer extracts to the /tmp directory. If you have limited space in /tmp, change the path to some place where you have enough free space.
export TMPDIR=/where/you/have/lots/of/freespace
FreeBSD users:
setenv TMPDIR /where/you/have/lots/of/freespace

I'm trying to start a game which I have installed using one of your installers and I get the error message "Syntax error: Bad substitution".

You are not using bash as your default shell. This is especially the case for Ubuntu users.
Open the relevant script and change the first line from "#!/bin/sh" to "#!/bin/bash".
