Ah, I see what went wrong. The .zip files themselves contain the incorrect permissions. 'chmod -R go+rX /path/to/uqm/content' is a good work-around. I'll replace the content files on the download site, so other people won't have the same problem.

Addition: I'll change the install script instead for this release as a workaround. For the next release, I'll make sure the files in the content .zips themselves have the correct permissions.

Frabjous day, it works!

Now I just have to get GDB working... apparently I'm missing ncurses? You'd think the average Linux distro would have this...? Ah well. Not a UQM problem, and now the game works for me.

I'm running an XP machine and I'm getting the kernal failed to load error.  I have a 1 gHz Duron with Geforce 3 and 512 MB of RAM.  Any ideas fixing this problem?  Thanks.

this is most likely an installation problem.
Did you try to upgrade from 0.1 or did you do a fresh install.
if you did an upgrade, you should rerun the installer, and make sure to choose 'Upgrade' from the drop-down menu (instead of Full Install') and rerun the installer.

If you did a full install, please cut and paste the entire message that appears on th screen.
