Running scripts
Hello. I have set up a computer that I want to perform one task on (for now). Host a dedicated game server (its a long story). I'm running Fedora Core 3 and do not know how to use scripts. I do have the game running but it crashes with a segmentation fault after awhile. I have toyed with VNC so that I might be able to remote in and restart the game but I'm not always near a computer nor do I always know when it crashes. The server files came with what I thought was a script that will restart the game and give me a date and time as to when is crashed.

The filename for the script is

Here are the contents of the script:

cd ..
./linuxjampded +set dedicated 2 +set fs_game ForceMod_III +exec ForceMod_III\fm3server.cfg

cd ForceMod_III
echo "ForceMod III win32 server auto-restarted on $lastrestart" >> ./ForceMod_III_dedRestart.txt ;


How do I run this script and do I need to create ForceMod_III_dedRestart.txt or will Linux create it the first time it is written to?

go into the directory that contains te script, then type

to run the script

Also you will probably have to


chmod +x
To make the script executable also add


To the top of the script or what ever shell you are running in.

Thanks a million
Ok, I can start the server with that command. I'll have to wait and see what happens on the next crash. I will keep everyone posted.

The server restarted during the night (another segmentation fault). The script did not restart the server though. Here is the reponse from the program:

./ line 7: ./ Permission denied

Where do I go from here?

The Permissions tab shows File owner: root and File groug: root. There are check marks as follows:

I really appreciate your patience with me. I am so used to Windows and this seems really hard to me at times.
