HLDS linux dedicated server help installation.


I've just downloaded the latest Half-life dedicated server for linux and I would like to know how to install it... so far I got this down... I first make a "hlds" directory, then i do a "chmod +x hlds_l_1120_full.bin", then i do a "./hlds_l_1120_full.bin", it brings me to the license agreement thing and I click yes, but then it says this...

"extracting /usr/steam/hlds_l_1120_full.tgz...
hlds_l_1120_full.bin: error extracting payload, No such file or directory"

what do I do? I've aleady tried "sh ./hlds_l_1120_full.bin"
and it says this? "./hlds_l_1120_full.bin: ./hlds_l_1120_full.bin: cannot execute binary file"

How do I install this dedicated server? I need it for my klan and I would like to get it up before the weekends over. thanx in advance!

You need to do this
$su -
#mkdir /etc/steam
#chmod 777 /etc/steam
then go back to user mode console and do this
#./hlds_l_1120_full.bin
the file will be on /etc/steam
then move your hlds_l_1120_full.tgz to the dir you want to and extract

hey it says exactly what it means, you do not have that folder there, it took me a second time to look at it closely to understand. LOL the answer is under our nose. It is kind of stupid how they want it exstracted to that location as I would prefer it in a different location.


It is trying to exstact it to /usr/steam/. /usr/ is there but steam/ isn't. I got it working, this is how..

$ su -
$ mkdir /usr/steam/
$ chown <user> /usr/steam/
$ chgrp <user> /usr/steam/
(user is a user other than root that you want to run it.)
$ exit
(goes back to your pervious user NOT ROOT!)
$ chmod 700 hlds_l_1120_full.bin
$ ./hlds_l_1120_full.bin
(it exstracts it to /usr/steam/)
$ cd /usr/steam
$ gunzip hlds_l_1120_full.tgz
$ tar xvf hlds_l_1120_full.tar
(exstracts it to a /usr/steam/hlds_l/*)

Well good luck guys, that is where I about left out. BTW it's /usr not /etc just fyi

Hi, me again

i get the error

couldn't exec listip.cfg
couldn't exec banned.cfg

as well, then the server freezes
I start the server as i would start the dedicated server of cstrike 1.5, dont know if its wrong but hears the line i normaly use (NB! i use the server on lan's not the internet)

./hlds_run -game cstrike -insecure -nomaster +sv_lan 1 +max_players 32 map de_dust

if anyone got an easier why would apresiate it, but what i did i wrote a script file so i just run "test" for example with the long ./hlds_run.... command in.

thanks

./hlds_run -game cstrike +exec server.conf +maxplayers 16 +map "whatever"

Ok

so this is what pop's up if I try to start the server:



Auto restarting the server on crash

scandir failed /usr/steam/hlds_l/./valve/SAVE
scandir failed /usr/steam/hlds_l/./platform/SAVE

Server is not secure [can fix this by adding -insecure to the run line]

scandir failed /usr/steam/hlds_l/./platform/SAVE

No auth server parsed
Disabling Valve Authentication
No master loaded [can fix this by adding -nomaster to the run line]
Using default master


From there on it just hangs.
Doesnt want to bring up the map that i selected and i used de_dust as the map.

while installing hlds, did you forget to do this?
>export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/"whever your hlds is located"/hlds_l:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH <enter>
What the above does is tells Linux to look in teh "/"whever you put it/hlds_l" directory for dynamic libraries, don't forget to change the paths to your own system. As I use /usr/steam/hlds_l/ you maybe using /usr/halflife/steam/hlds_l (or whatever...) if you don't use the right path, the server will NOT work, so double check before you start. then do your game....

Jip i didnt know i had to do that.

So do i need to unistall and then reinstall the dedicated server or is there a other way.

And if i need to reinstall where and when do i do the "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/steam/./ ?

my system use the same path as urs as i can remember.
