Install Failed? (Open Arena)

Sat Jan 26, 2013 1:54 pm

Hi,
Tried to download openarena a couple of times in the past few days. It downloads successfully, but when it tries to install, the temrinal opens, and at the bottom of the terminal window it tells me that the install failed. I tried deleting /var/lib/indiecity/pistore, which means that it can download openarena from the store again, but the install still fails?
Anyone got any ideas? Anything I should try and reinstall?
Thanks for your time

In the terminal window where it says "Install Failed", what does it say above that? That's where any errors are likely to be displayed. :)

Can you try it with a clean SD card image?
All the testing we did was done with a fresh copy of the 2012-12-16 Raspbian image on 4GB SD cards.

I am wondering if this is a disk space issue, you can use the df command to check.
The download is about 400 MB, and then it needs another 400 to extract it.
So you need around 800 MB free on the SD card in total.

I also think we might need to raise an issue with the Pi Store application, it probably shouldn't cache the downloaded file. It should clear it so the disk space gets freed up.

Yea, I have the same issue as described above, I get to the end of the download and get the "installation failed" message in a terminal box. I tried this on a fresh install of the newest edition of wheezy downloaded from the raspberry pi official website. :geek:

Here is the procedure I followed;
  • Starting with a 4 GB SD card
  • Write fresh copy of 2012-12-16 Raspbian image
  • During the blue screen config section I set, expand rootfs to fill SD card, disable over scan and overclock to modest
  • Note: the overclock shouldn't matter though
  • Finish and reboot, let it expand the SD card file system
  • Login, then I ran the following commands
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install pistore
    (this updates the Pi Store to the latest version, it should do this automatically but doing it this way saves you some time)
  • startx
  • Install OA from the Pi Store, and launch
Note: I didn't change the root password, or any other linux settings from the default.

No-one's answered what it says above "Install Failed". Or does it say nothing at all?

Have you expanded the partition on your SD card? As Dave mentioned, OpenArena is quite large and if you haven't done this, you won't manage it. You can expand the partition by typing 'sudo raspi-config' into a terminal and then selecting 'expand_rootfs'. If you don't do this, Raspbian will only be trying to use about 2GB of your SD card and not the whole thing. :)

If you've already done this and you're still having problems, it may well be that you've reached the limits of your SD card, as Dave has described. As I said, if someone can tell me what it says above "Install Failed", then we can probably resolve the problem much more quickly.

Sorry guys, went out last night hence no reply ;)
AH! I wondered about that expand option in raspi-config! Can't believe I was such an idiot. Didn't know I was supposed to do it! :P I did wonder though
I consider myself to be au fait with computing, but alas I think I will re evaluate my opinion haha
thanks for all your help

By the way, my SD is 8GB. It's currently expanding the .zip as we speak! interesting to see what the multiplayer options are in this if there are any / using the pi as a server for OA or something! Cool.
Now I need to make some solenoids play a glockenspiel, and use the pi as a minecraft server - if i can ever figure THAT out O_o

You can host a server on a Pi, I was playing on one late last week :)

You likely won't be able to join any of the servers listed under the Internet screen of Multiplayer though, they're all PC servers which aren't compatible with the Pi build afaik.

Which is odd, as Quake III arena on the Pi can play with the "big-boys" on the internet just fine. Admittedly, I get totally powned.

What he said! You can host a dedicated server on a Pi and then forward port 27960 to the Pi on your router. Then other Pi users can go Multiplayer > Specify and enter your IP address. See the Pi Store info page on how to operate a dedicated server.

The PC version of Open Arena should be backwards compatible with the slightly older Pi version, so it should work fine :)

I've had this error also. I'm using an 8-gig NOOBS card with the Rasbian Wheezy image on it and I have a bit over 2 Gig's available. There was no error above the ***Installation Failed*** warning, but I did notice that it was coming up with bad CRC on some of the .pak 's. Would that have anything to do with it? And if not, what would be recommended I do?

Hi,

Would you mind e-mailing the contents of ~/indiecity/pistore/Scripts.log to [email protected] ? Mention it's for me. :)

Thanks,

There was no ~/indiecity/pistore/Scripts.log I also checked in /var/lib/indiecity/ and /usr/local/bin/indiecity to no avail.

That's odd - there are some log files you have to enable manually, but that one should be recording all the time. Out of curiosity, does that directory structure (~/indiecity/pistore) actually exist?

In that case, would you mind trying to install OpenArena again, copying everything in the terminal once it fails and then sending it to the aforementioned address?

Thanks for your time,

Alright, I've sent the text your way. In ~/indiecity/pistore/ no, there is no directory structure. I'm not sure if it matters, but I've been accessing the pi through a rooted tightvncserver.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the pistore, and the directory is there. The install will still not work, but the logs are there.

Cheers - I've got the output. That's an odd one. I'll have a think.

Do you get the same result if you're not root?

As non-root, I get the same results. Can anything be done, or will I be forever without openarena? :cry:

Apologies for the delay in replying.

Something can certainly be done - it's just a case of figuring out what. :)

Could you please post the output of the following commands:
  • df -h
  • cd /var/lib/indiecity/pistore/Installers/938bee38-e0b4-4e03-b835-3fd1b94043da && (unzip -t 938bee38-e0b4-4e03-b835-3fd1b94043da_1_0_0_6.zip ; echo $?)
  • cd /var/lib/indiecity/pistore/Installers/938bee38-e0b4-4e03-b835-3fd1b94043da && md5sum 938bee38-e0b4-4e03-b835-3fd1b94043da_1_0_0_6.zip

I am also having trouble installing anything from the pi store. Every app I attempt to install says "install failed". Has anyone found a working fix for this yet?
