abfackelns Server Utilities (ASU) for Unreal Tournament

Installing Unreal Tournament

Since you are running X, (if you are not running X Windows then go to the dedicated server installation section) you can take advantage of Loki Games' pretty little TCL-like script which will make installation a snap.  You can get their installer here (6.2 MB):

You only need one of the above files but which one it is depends on which CD you have.  And, remember, these files are binary and must not be downloaded as ascii or text.

If you do not have a CD then you have a few choices:

  • Install the dedicated server.
  • Copy the CD into a new directory on your hard drive.

Now, you should have everything that you need.  Start an xterm session (or any shell in X Windows) and log yourself in as root.  Unfortunately, this installer seems to only work reliably if you execute it with root permissions -- you may be able to beat it into submission without knowing the root password but i have not actually tried this.

If your CD is mounted someplace other than /cdrom (or if you have a copy of it on your hard drive) then you must run the following command before starting the installer:

  • export SETUP_CDROM=/path/to/my/cdrom

And, finally, execute the install.sh script through sh or bash, like so:

  • bash install.sh
This will invoke the installer window and you are on your way!

ASU is currently in its beta-testing phase, and is being offered free without warrantee (as always).  If you have any problems, comments or suggestions please visit the abfackeln.com Unreal Tournament for Linux support page at https://github.com/abfackeln/ut
