Problem with UT2004 Update

Post by Longkong » Mon Nov 22, 2004 21:48

I have a Probblem with the loki_update updating UT2004, it downloads, but then the update fails:

Code: Select all

Performing update:
Updating files
-> ADD PATH Animations
-> ADD PATH Help
-> ADD PATH Speech
-> ADD PATH System
Update failed
If I do It manually (as the User I installed with):

Code: Select all

Would you like to apply this update? [Y/n]: Y

=============================================================
Performing update:
If I do it as root it works :roll:

did you install ut2k4 or previous updates as root?
so your user is missing write permission

I installed it as User in /usr/local/games

I kwow its a little bit strange, but I am the only User on the system and I want to install my games without root Permissions and in the "normal" Directories :)

However, I installed it as the user, and so the permissions should be ok.

installer worked here

update and manual tested

chown -R <user>:users /usr/local/games
chown -R <user>:users /usr/local/bin

those two directorys are owned by my user

but the update installers doesn't touch any files in the bin dir or any other files outside the ut2k4 installdir

if installed as user the update installer should work without any problems
@Longkong
check if there are some files which aren't owned by your user
