And it keep repeatingly ask me to mount the disc, but the game is in my driver and is mounted. And it is mounted otherwise I would never had gone up to this point of the install.

Any solutions? Thanks!

I have the same issue, I tried making then mounting the .iso but still receive that message.

may it was unmounted after certain steps , check it out whether its mounted or not use mount in terminal to see.

I'm pretty sure it remained mounted as I still had the little disk icon that appears on the Desktop and the files were in the mount location.
Code I used:

sudo mount -o loop UT2004.iso /media/<mountlocation>

You need to upgrade UT2k4, after which includes an automatic NoCD patch from the developers amongst a lot of other improvements to the game.

You shouldn't have much trouble finding the upgrade on the net.

[edit:] Hmm, I just noticed that you are failing before what I wrote above is applicable. Dunno what the solution is, it has never happened to me?

Sorry I can't be of any more help.

What version are you trying to install? CD/DVD? Try to manually copy the files/folders from the iso to /usr/local/games/ut2004/ and then copy over the latest megapack and patch.

The structure should look like this:

Animations/ (*.ukx.uz2)
Maps/ (*.ut2.ux2)
Music/ (*.ogg)
Sounds/ (*.uax.uz2)
StaticMeshes/ (*.usx.uz2)
Textures/ (*.utx.uz2)
