After installing I get:

$ ut2004
ObjectProperty XEffects.xPawnGibGroup.PrecacheContent.Level: Serial size
mismatch: Got 32, Expected 15
Exiting due to error

I can't get the game to launch in linux I filed a bug-report a long time ago,
but gave up, now I am at it again.

UT2004 will install and run with out flaw in Windows (whole single player game
verifed). I know no other test for the media short of buying the game again...

I have installed the game now 4 times now in linux using gentoo's installer and
the on cd one, neither gives errors. I get like error messages on launch no
matter which installer I used, however they do vary.  

I maybe doing something stupid so all input is helpful.
Anyone with any idea on this please help me out. I am clueless.

I looked though the mailing-list archive but couldn't find anything like this, I
will be greatly relieved if this is a dupe.
