Unhappy Installing a Half Life Dedicated Server


I have downloaded a half life dedicated server (hlds) file and a counter strike (cs) server file. The cs file ended in tar.gz and i was able to 'untar' it and that worked fine. The hlds file ended in 'bin'. I have tried to run it, untar it and gunzip it. None of it worked. Anyone any idea on how you install this type of file?

no this way you don't "make it a tar.gz" you are actually setting up executable bit on it, so try
chmod 755 filename.bin and run it either
./filename.bin
or
sh filename.bin
Sometimes .bin files are just shell scripts.

Thanks for the replys guys :-)

the chmod 755 and the ./hlds.bin worked great.

onec u got it all uncompressed and its there u get to the dir and type ./hlds_run -game cs
./hlds_run -game dod
once it does that then type the map, like map dod_thunder, then it loads all its stufdf up
or whatever the name of the mod dir is. like i run a dod server on my mandrake system, but its kinda wack, because i can see it on a LAN game, and it even says won auth, like i authenticated with its master server, and has the addreses 198.74.32.53 and 2 others, definatly talkin to outside world..but when i try to join the game by my dsl address and not my priv addresss(behind router/firewall) but i think the reason i cant join by my public ip is because its klkinda goin back in on itself...anybody follow me or understand? and when it starts the game it always shows my loopback 127.0.0.1 and i can still see its 192.168.1.7 address?

Ok look, most of us are linux newbies just in it for the servers.
But in all the tutorials on installing this as a file only this was the one to do it as a .bin

I can see it in my linux server, you have to set up the permission of dod files such : shell script file, config file, hlds_run file and etc to exec or write to others or group (right click on the file).Hope this help.
