Hi, im new to linux and i wanted to make an install script to automate the installation of a game, but i have no idea what bash is. I was wondering if someone could help program two sections of the code i need. That would be great because the rest of the script is the same thing almost.


First the script checks if the user is root or not, b/c this is where the game is installed

if [ `id -u` != 0 ]

(this is all i can code so far)

then it downloads all the files ending in ".pk3" at this location: "http://h4x0rz.bounceme.net/Urban%20Terror/maps/" to the destpath location on the user's computer, WITHOUT overriding any files.


This is what i currently have that does the same job but is more manual:

cd ${destpath}/q3ut4
		wget - c 'http://h4x0rz.bounceme.net/Urban Terror/maplist'
		maplst=`cat maplist`
		for map in $maplst; do
				${wget_bin} ${maps_dl_url}/${map}.pk3
		rm maplist

This sucks cause i have to update the text file manually.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to achieve. I've seen your two scripts, and I can see what they are doing. But now, I'm wanting to know, what you want to do other than what the scripts you have so far?


I must be missing something :unsure:


In the second script, what is it that you're having to update manually? Please explain, so we can help put the script together.

It appears that there is nothing in the remote directory but .pk3 files, so there is no need for the maplist, really.

As Greg2 said, this command will do it for you (with a slight correction to not overwrite files already downloaded):

wget -r -nc -np http://h4x0rz.bounceme.net/Urban%20Terror/maps/

i just tried this and i have two problems

1) i want to put all the files in whatever direcotry i am currently in, i tested this on my desktop and it puts them in h4x0rZ.bounceme.net/Urban Terror/Maps. Maybe we could get rid of the recreate directories.

2) i want to only download .pk3 files because when it does this it downloads all the possible .html files created when broswing the directory. If you go to my website and click on "name" to sort by name you will have a file named index.html?C=N;O=D

Thank you for helping me learn how to use wget i bet this will help later too. But now i realize i have two more questions:

1)How do i tell wget to not print out an output file? Or should i just do "rm wget-log"

2)How do i tell wget to stop after the window has been closed? is there any easy way of doing this?


Edit: Actually i have 3

3)How can i see if a domain is available? This is my attempt is it correct?

There are multiple mirrors, map_dl_mirror is the mirror

wget -d -r -np -nd -A .pk3 $map_dl_mirror || echo "WGET failed downloading."

Is there like a goto statement or maybe like some kinda loop i can put this in?


Here is my entire function so far:


function dl_maps {
 cat << .end
 Select your mirror:


 read dlmirror
 case "$dlmirror" in
	  map_dl_mirror = "http://h4x0rz.bounceme.net/Urban%20Terror/maps/"
	  map_dl_mirror = ""
	  echo "Invalid option"

 wget -d -r -np -nd -A .pk3 $map_dl_mirror || echo "WGET failed downloading."

Edit 2: Opps i miscounted there are only 7 mirrors i orginally had put the number 8. And mine's the best cause last week i had 186+ maps i have to check how many there are now. And i fixed the .end, i forogt it has to be all the way to the left.
