ls = ut2004-lnxpatch3236.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf ut2004-lnxpatch3236.tar.bz2
nope, this is not the case with these patchs. they are untared into a dir called UT2004-Patch. You simple cd into that dir after untaring it, then cp -rf * ~/ut2004/NewBlackDak said:The file will be untarred in whatever directory you're cd'ed to, and should be named ut2004-lnxpatch3236.
You'll then need to run ./ut2004-lnxpatch3236 as root I believe. I haven't patched mine yet though out of laziness.
That's something to known about tar. You can be in ~, and if you tar -zxf /path/to/some/file.tar.gz it will be decompressed in ~. This is why you should NEVER decompress an archive as root cd'ed to /. You have no idea what it is going to shipe out.
