Hello all (again)
I just e-mailed the list before and recieved a response on my last
question however I have one more problem (which seems to be the biggest
for me). I am trying to run a Counter-Strike: Source dedicated server
off FreeBSD 6.1. I previously had it running fine with CentOS but
because BSD needs linux binaries and such, i have run into a problem.
First off I'd like to say that I already installed linux_base8 (or so i
think) and have enabled it in rc.conf. I installed the source dedicated
server files using hldsupdatetool (steams client) NOT the one provided
by /use/ports/games/linux-steam. I found that the steam client in
freebsd ports seems a bit outdated since steam doesnt use email and
logins anymore to install/update steam server files. There used to be a
problem with the hldsupdatetool which forced people to use the steam
update tool in the ports collection but I believe thats been fixed now
because i ran it without any problems (unless theres something i dont know).
In any event to make a long story short, when I try to run srcds, it
gives me an error and refuses to run.
For all those gameserver people out there and GSP's do you think you
could lend a hand? I know quite a few gameservers providers that run
their source servers on freebsd. Maybe im doing something wrong. Could
someone walk me through how to get source up and running starting from
scratch on everything I need to do/install in order for source to work?
This is the error im getting when i try to run srcds
chi01-043-36# ./srcds_i686 -game cstrike +hostport 27015 +ip

Failed to open bin/dedicated_i686.so (tier0_i486.so: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory)
Thanks much in advance!
I promise I won't try to bother the list anymore
