Exclamation Halflife Server

Ok this should probably go under server or something, but i'm putting it here because i'm hoping it can be found easier by the genious who is going to fix it.

I have a RedHat 9 server which i am using to run a Halflife Server ( and Day Of Defeat.

I ran this server successfully and had a few people playing on it, then my ADSL line got cut of f (a regular occurance, but that is a diferent story)

Ever since i have not been able to start up the server, it gets so far (see below) and then hangs

Auto detecting CPU
Using AMD Optimised binary.
Auto-restarting the server on crash

Console initialized.
Protocol version 46
Exe version
Exe build: 18:21:32 Jul 29 2003 (2469)
WON Auth Server
Server IP address
Downloading Security Module from ...
Can't register variable mp_chattime, already defined
Completed downloading Security Module from
Server is in Secure Mode.
couldn't exec listip.cfg
couldn't exec banned.cfg

If i type exit, it will look like it has added the first 3 Master servers.

I cannot see this server from the LAN or the Internet, i have also tried running a straight Halflife server and a CS server. All do the same.

I start this with the command

./hlds_run -game dod

or something a little more complicated such as

./hlds_run -game dod +ip +maxplayers 16 +map dod_anzio

I know that my router is set-up right as it was working.

Please Please Please can somebody help, this is driving me crazy

Yes, I have them running on RH9 you can get them here

Wonderwally, I had that same problem after a steam update. I had to reinstall to get it working again. Now I keep a backup of my hlds_l directory to fall back on when Steam F@%&s it up. Try a reinstall sorry..

I am VERY new to Linux so please forgive me if ask stupid questions! This is also the first forum I have ever signed up to so forgive me if I do any thing wrong.

My question is this:
I have moved to linux as I have just acquired a dell poweredge server 2300 and I have installed Red Hat 7.3 on it. I would really like to know how to set up a half-life server. I have downloaded hlds_l_3111_full.bin and would like to know how to install and run it, please explain in simple terms how to do it as I only really know windows stuff and commands
