Quake 1 dedicated server


OK so I would like to set up a dedicated quake server.
I've been trying to do it with The Darkplaces Engine since it is Linux ready.
but i cant get it to run and mods, or figure out what the dedicated server is really doing running in the background.
Every thing i've seen so far on the interweb has told me to change my command line options.
and I have no idea how to do that in linux. and being branspankin noob to linux nothing i've tried in the terminal doese anything. i cant even get the game to launch from it.

Personally I have not done this but I did find the following:

Quote:
How to install Quake on Linux

All that DarkPlaces needs from the Quake CD is pak files, with this in mind, all you need to do is make a ~/quake directory, extract the darkplaces engine zip to that directory, then make a quake/id1 directory, and put the pak0.pak and pak1.pak from your Quake CD into the quake/id1 directory, then all should be well, you will probably also want to make a ~/bin/darkplaces script containing the following text:

#!/bin/sh
cd ~/quake
./darkplaces-sdl $*
Then do chmod +x ~/bin/darkplaces

For more information on Quake installation on Linux see the Linux Quake How To
And the howto at the end points to : http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Quake-HOWTO.html

Hope that helps

Firstly thanks for responding. I'm going to give that a shot and see if it works some magic. But I haven't found the quke for linux site all that usefull.
When I doudle click(unbutu) on the dedicated server app it starts running in the back ground but I don't know how to set the paramaters to run the server I want.
What exactly does chmod do? I've used it before but only cause a step by step told me to.

If you look up man chmod the info is pretty good, but basically it is used for setting the permissions on files (consider all things in linux are referred to as files)

So if you have a text file called mine.txt and said:
Code:
ls -l mine.txt

#output could be
-rwxr-xr-x 1 grail grail 7440 2010-03-21 03:11 mine.txt
chmod works on the permissions at the start of the line (-rwxr-xr-x) meaning:

rwx - user grail can read, write and execute the file
r-x - members of group grail can read and execute
r-x - the world (everyone else) can read and execute

Using chmod the command would look like:
Code:
chmod 755 mine.txt
Hope that helps.
