Wanted: CounterStrike 1.6 Dedicated Server Howto.

Hello everyone!
I'm thinking of maybe hosting a dedicated server for CounterStrike 1.6 on one of my boxes. I have searched on the web for a good HowTo, but most of them are outdated and/or full of broken links.

GNU/Linux is such a good and stable OS, and I wan't to test the ability when hosting a game server on a Linuxbased box.
And I think that I can really learn alot about using linux by hosting a CS server.

So, is there a person here who has enough experience with CS 1.6 dedicated servers to put together a small but good howto? And maybe it could be published in the HowTo section of LQ? That would be helpful for other users as well.

In advance, thanks =)

there is a nice wikipedia manual for this.

but in fact it's extremely easy.

first get hldsupdatetool.bin
make sure u got execute permissions on the file. do this by typing "ls -l"

this should give you a list like this, but only WITH hldsupdatetool.bin
[shorun@mars ~]$ ls -l
totaal 172560
drwxr-xr-x 4 shorun shorun 4096 mrt 10 20:38 afghanwarriorzfunserver/
-rw-rw-r-- 1 shorun shorun 51399913 mrt 7 17:57
drwxrwxr-x 10 shorun shorun 4096 mrt 17 10:19 amsn-0.95/
-rw-rw-r-- 1 shorun shorun 4854819 mrt 17 10:17 amsn-0.95.tar.gz
drwx------ 2 shorun shorun 4096 mrt 9 11:49 amsn_received/
-rw-rw-r-- 1 shorun shorun 1340 mrt 10 19:14 binKwd9Os6lse.bin

now u chan see the perms of these files, drwxrwxrwx with user group.
make sure the user got x (execute, the first 4 (drwx) shows user perm, the next 3 group the other 3 other) permission. u can set it with "chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin" or "chmod 700 hldsupdatetool.bin"

then run the file

and the rest should be clear as it is.

hope this helps
