Unreal

Install only a bare minimum locally, get the rest from the noexec mounted NFS share:

NFSDIR=/mnt/nfs/data/games/Unreal
sudo mkdir /opt/unreal && cd /opt/unreal
for f in $NFSDIR/*; do sudo ln -vs "$f"; done
sudo rm Save System
sudo rsync -avP $NFSDIR/Save   .                                  # Allow games to be saved, locally
sudo rsync -avP $NFSDIR/System .

Allow some users to modify configuration files and to save games:

sudo chgrp staff Save && sudo chmod g+s Save                      # Create new files with the correct group

sudo setfacl -m g:staff:rw  Save/*.usa System/{Unreal,User}.ini
sudo setfacl -m g:staff:rwx Save

Start the game with Wine:

wine32 System/Unreal.exe

Unreal Tournament

Loki Software[1] once provided some Linux gluecode to make Unreal Tournament available on Linux. There's a howto on the Ubuntu wiki[2] on how to install UT, let's see how far we get on a Debian/amd64 system:

  • Have a copy of "UT" or "UT GOTY" ready
 MD5 726aede817997a2aefccb8c20601d760  unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.run
 MD5 7012dc6caaa9453dcf8951474556912a  unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.goty.run
 MD5 82e71a81de1eaf4e09648372c0ca7289  unreal.tournament.official.bonus.pack.collection.run

Ubuntu

  • We may have to install an old version of libgtk and its dependency, libglib:
$ wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+1.2/1.2.10-18.1build2/+build/484191/+files/libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb
$ wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+1.2/1.2.10-18.1build2/+build/484189/+files/libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb
$ wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glib1.2/1.2.10-19build1/+build/462713/+files/libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb

$ md5sum libg*deb
7115a3779d81896434e7e5b1165e5163  libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb
e2b9d99fb16cd5ffa10c386e8d252e47  libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb
4839680726bdecdab9f9c64aab797474  libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb

$ sudo dpkg -i libgtk*.deb libglib*.deb

Debian

To install an older version of libgtk resp. libglib, we can temporarily add the old Debian/lenny archive to our sources.list:

deb https://archive.kernel.org/debian-archive/debian/ lenny main

Add the (old) Debian release key:

gpg --recv-keys 4D270D06F42584E6
gpg --armor --export 4D270D06F42584E6 | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update

Now we should be able to install the package:

$ sudo apt-get install -t lenny libgtk1.2
Reading package lists... Done

The following extra packages will be installed:
  libglib1.2ldbl libgtk1.2-common

Get:3 https://archive.kernel.org/debian-archive/debian/ lenny/main libgtk1.2 amd64 1.2.10-18.1 [956 kB]
[...]

As Debian/lenny is not not maintained any more (and won't receive any updates), we can disable the archive again in /etc/apt/sources.list and set these old packages to hold so that they won't get removed or updated:

$ for p in libglib1.2ldbl libgtk1.2 libgtk1.2-common; do echo $p\ hold | sudo dpkg --set-selections; done 
$ dpkg --get-selections | grep hold
libglib1.2ldbl                                  hold
libgtk1.2                                       hold
libgtk1.2-common                                hold

We could even remove the old key:

sudo apt-key del 4D270D06F42584E6

Installation

Let's try to install UT now via the command line installer:

export TMPDIR=$(pwd)/tmp && mkdir -p tmp                     # Use another location if TMPDIR is mounted noexec
export SETUP_CDROM=/mnt/cdrom/                               # Where the UT or UT GOTY installation CD is mounted

Try the UT GOTY installer and pass some arguments to setup.sh

./unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.goty.run --nox11 -- -n -i /opt/ut -b $HOME/bin

The help text from unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.goty.run:

./unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.goty.run [options] [--] [additional arguments to embedded script]
 with following options (in that order)
 --confirm             Ask before running embedded script

 --nochown             Do not give the extracted files to the current user
 --target NewDirectory Extract in NewDirectory
 --tar arg1 [arg2 ...] Access the contents of the archive through the tar command
 --                    Following arguments will be passed to the embedded script

The help text, from the embedded setup.sh

./setup.sh -h

  -b path  Set the binary path to <path>
  -h       Display this help message
  -i path  Set the install path to <path>
  -c cwd   Use an alternate current directory for the install
  -f file  Use an alternative XML file (default setup.data/setup.xml)
  -n       Force the text-only user interface
  -o opt   Enable the option named "opt" from the XML file. Also enables non
           interactive operation. Can be used multiple times.
  -p pref  Specify a path prefix in the installation media.
  -v n     Set verbosity level to n. Available values :
           0: Debug  1: Quiet  2: Normal 3: Warnings 4: Fatal
  -V       Print the version of the setup program and exit

Configuration

Adjust ~/.loki/ut/System/UnrealTournament.ini:

[Engine.Engine]

Usage

With all the necessary dependencies installed, we should be able to play:

$ cd /opt/ut/System
$ ldd ./ut-bin
       linux-gate.so.1 (0xf770b000)
       libdl.so.2 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libdl.so.2 (0xf76d6000)

       libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libXdmcp.so.6 (0xf6ee8000)

To get working audio: AudioDevice=ALAudio.ALAudioSubsystem has been changed to Audio.GenericAudioSubsystem but we still need a 32 bit version of the PulseAudio OSS Wrapper.

$ sudo apt-get install libpulsedsp:i386
$ dpkg -L $_ | fgrep .so
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so

Try with:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so padsp ./ut-bin

Errors

If UnrealTournament.ini is b0rked, UT doesn't seem to start at all:

$ ./ut-bin 
Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
Aborting.
Segmentation fault

Or:

$ ./ut-bin 
Signal: SIGIOT [iot trap]
Aborting.

Sometimes UnrealTournament.log has some clues on what went wrong.

NFS

We have a working copy of UT on our NFS server, but the client mounts all NFS shares with noexec and we're unable to execute System/ut-bin:

$ ls -lgo System/ut-bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 91336 Dec  8  2002 System/ut-bin
$ System/ut-bin
bash: System/ut-bin: Permission denied

$ strace -e execve System/ut-bin
execve("System/ut-bin", ["System/ut-bin"], [/* 54 vars */]) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
strace: exec: Permission denied
+++ exited with 1 +++

We don't want to mount with exec so let's just copy System and symlink the rest:

UTNFS=/mnt/nfs/data/games/UT
UTLOC=/opt/ut

mkdir -m0755 $UTLOC
tar -C $UTNFS -cf - System | tar -C $UTLOC -xf -
cd $UTLOC
for f in $UTNFS/*; do ln -s "$f"; done                     #  As System already exists, ignore the error from ln(1)

UT 2004

Installation

The original UT 2004 CD can be installed without the linux-installer.sh[4] script too.[5]

Mount the CDROM somewhere and create an installation directory:

DIR=/opt/ut2004
sudo mount -o ro,loop Unreal_Tournament_2004.iso /mnt/cdrom
sudo mkdir $DIR
sudo chown bob:users $DIR

Install unshield to extract the .cab files:

sudo apt-get install unshield                                       # Or cabextract for Fedora systems

Put (symlink) all the .cab files into one place and install into the installation directory:

cd /tmp
for f in /mnt/cdrom/Disk?/data?.*; do ln -sv $f; done
unshield -D 1 -d $DIR x data1.cab                                   # This will extract data1.cab and all the other .cab files

While all the contents have been extracted, we need to clean up some things now. Change to the installation directory and:

cd $DIR
rm -rf _* All_UT2004.EXE/
mv English_Sounds_Speech_System_Help/* . && rmdir English_Sounds_Speech_System_Help/
mv English_Manual/Manual.pdf Help/       && rmdir English_Manual/
mv All_Help/* Help/                      && rmdir All_Help/

Remove the All_ prefix from the directories:

ls -d All* | while read f; do mv -iv "$f" ${f##All_}; done          # This works with bash

We still need to apply the latest Linux patch:

tar --strip-components=1 -C $DIR -xvf ~/ut2004-lnxpatch3355.tar     # GNU/tar is needed here to omit
                                                                    # the UT2004-Patch/ prefix

We'll need a CDkey as well:

$ cat > System/CDkey
xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
^D

Almost there. We need the followng for Audio support:

sudo apt-get install libopenal1
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libopenal.so.1 $DIR/System/openal.so

We're are on an x86-64 system and will use the ut2004-bin-linux-amd64 binary - some libraries may still be missing:

$ ldd System/ut2004-bin | grep not
       ./libSDL-1.2.so.0 => not found
       libstdc++.so.5 => not found

Install with:

sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2debian libstdc++5
cd $DIR/System
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libSDL-1.2.so.0

Similar for Fedora systems:

sudo dnf install SDL compat-libstdc++-33.x86_64 openal-soft
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libSDL-1.2.so.0 $DIR/System/libSDL-1.2.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libopenal.so.1  $DIR/System/openal.so

With that in place, UT2004 should be able to start!

NFS

We have a working copy of UT2004 on our NFS server, but the client mounts all NFS shares with noexec and we're unable to run the executable. Let's create symlinks to the game's content and just keep the System directory local:

UTNFS=/mnt/nfs/data/games/UT2004
UTLOC=/opt/ut2004

sudo mkdir -m0755 $UTLOC
sudo tar -C $UTNFS -cf - System | tar -C $UTLOC -xf -
cd $UTLOC
for f in $UTNFS/*; do sudo ln -s "$f"; done                     # As System already exists, ignore the error from ln(1)

Commands

Some commands may only work in Unreal or UT:

stat fps                                                        # Show FPS
