HELP: Half-life Dedicated server


Hi, I'm fairly new to linux. I am currently doing all my work via ssh because the server is very far away from where I am. The serer is running Redhat Linux version 8.0

I recently downloaded and installed hlds for linux (hlds_l_3110_full.bin). Along with that I installed adminmod and metamod, to enhance server performance and functionality.

Basically, what I want to do is make it so that whenever The server boots, the game will start with the map "turkeyburgers", with sv_maxspeed set at 9999 and sv_gravity set at 500. The way I usually turn the server on is going to the /hlds_l/ directory and typing

./sv_serv

and typing the following to setup the variables that make up the server

map turkeyburgers
sv_maxspeed 9999999
sv_gravity 500
sv_password password (for private games)
hostname Ub3rServ

I am looking for a way so that when the server boots the half-life server sets up and runs those commands. As opposed to my current setup where I have to login via ssh, run those commands, and stay logged into the shell for the game to be open.

If Anybody can help me out, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Have a look in the /etc/rc.d/init.d directory.

These are the files that control what gets turned on/off in a SysV format.
You can place your commands in the start section ...

or place them at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local file
Here, you must use the full directory for the command eg /usr/bin/sv_serv

you could change those lines in your server.cfg located in .../hlds_l/cstrike/ (where ..... is the rest of the path information) hostname, gravity, maxspeed.. basically any sv_ and mp_ cvars can be set in that file and when you run the server via the /hlds_run command, it will read the server.cfg file and set those values it finds in there, i think (not 100% sure) it re-reads it on every map change but i dont remember.

i just read that you dont have physical access to the machine, if you have the IP of the machine then you should start the server using /hlds_run -game cstrike +ip <ipaddress> +port <port> +maxplayers <a number here> +map <mapname>

example

./hlds_run -game cstrike +ip 192.168.1.100 +port 27015 +maxplayers 12 +map fy_iceworld

there are other options you can pass but i think that's what i use, i sometimes forget....but that command will automatically read what's in server.cfg and set up the values you want. another useful thing is to use the screen command, i cant really explain "screen", you'd do better doing "man screen" at the pompt to see what it does, the best i can tell you is that it helps you manage windows.

I have the same problem, as newbie in Linux. I would like the halflife server to automatic startup, just after the boot.

Say I would like to execute these two commands when SME 5.6 Linux starts:

cd /halflife/
./hlds_run -game cstrike +ip 192.168.1.100 +port 27015 +maxplayers 12 +map fy_iceworld

How do i do that?
