The problem is it isn't loki_update that's crashing, it's the patch 
program. Specifically, it's a glibc conflict with 2.3 systems.

If you are brave, you can take apart the individual patch files and 
replace the loki_patch program in each with one you built yourself, but 
that's a pain.

This file from that page:


...is probably easier for now. Just unpack it over your ut2003 
installation (any version), and you're 2199 compatible.

I'll be fixing this whole situation when we stop churning out 
patches...basically I'll have the updater see one big (2.3 compatible) 
loki_update patch that brings the game from retail to the latest, 
skipping the glibc 2.3 broken patches.
