Does ./hldsupdatetool.bin do some sort of machine check?
I was playing with my nix toy (Itanium II 1.5Ghz SMP, has both HW and SW x86 support, Ubuntu 8.10) and trying to see how good / bad the x86 performance is on it. But before even getting HLDS to run Im running into "no explanation" deadends, which is annoying.

When I execute ./hldsupdatetool.bin I get the License Agreement and type Yes then.. nothing, it just goes back to the prompt. No error, no crash, nothing at all. Whats happening behind the scenes here? Can I bypass a machine check if thats whats happening?

Also, I tried circumventing the Agreement entirely by running ./steam directly (downloaded from the web) and I get:

Quote:Checking bootstrapper version ...
Getting version 34 of Steam HLDS Update Tool
Downloading. . . . . . . . . . ..update failed, please run "tar xzUf LinuxHldsUpdateTool_34.pkg" to install the latest steam binary

Im not expecting miracles, but I would really like to see it fail in a more.. constructive manner.
OK then... anywhere I can just get the extracted file and skip all this package download rubbish?
