Angry Can't run .bin file on Ubuntu 12.10


As the subject says, my second dedicated server I own is being a royal pain when I try running this .bin file. My main problem is that when I try running the file, it says there's no file there which I know there is. FileZilla is updated and is using the same IP the ssh console is using as well as the console is cd'd into the proper dir. When I chmod the file, it does what it's supposed to do with no errors; but, when I try running that same exact file, it says it doesn't exist.

Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

Note:
I do know this is a executable, try for yourself. .bin file

What architecture are you using? Looking at the first line in the notes for the HLDSUpdateTool read like the following.

Quote:
If you have a 64-bit distribution, make sure you have ia32-libs or you will be told that the .bin file doesn't exist.
In that same document they link you on how to install ia32-libs on 64-bit systems.

The MOTD says this so I believe it's 64.

Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-26-generic x86_64)

I'll try installing ia32-libs and see if that fixes it.

It is 64-bit. Do you have ia32-libs installed? If not see my post #2 for a link to instructions. Also you should read the beginning of that page for the HLDSUpdateTool.

Quote:
Note that many server downloads now use the newer SteamPipe content system, and so the older HLDSUpdateTool will provide an out-of-date server. In this case, use SteamCMD instead.
See SteamCMD. HLDSUpdateTool is apparently being completely phased out. I'd recommend reading fully the articles I've linked you on the subject.

Installed ia32-libs, working with shining colors. It did error a bit but from reading it I believe it's just because it isn't configured yet. Picture
Thanks a ton sag47!

Oh and I know HLDSUpdateTool is getting eradicated from usage, it's been that way for a few months now. I just got HLDSUpdateTool since I have some experience with it and none with SteamCMD.
