A2OA Linux Server beta 1.59.79548

Recommended Posts

Dwarden gave you a clear statement, no?

First 1.60 stable, only then they can build a new, hopefully stable, linux build.

On top tomorrow starts e3 with CC, ToH and e3. Guess what had their focus for the last weeks.

That said there were zero crash dumps and such supplied in the CIT.

And you wonder why they are unable to address it?

GossamerSolid appearently sent some.

My problem is, why is BIS not fixing this. If it was Valve it would be fixed within a week!

We're moving our gaming dedicated server on 100mbit line to a simple Windows box on 20-20 optics at one of member's homes. :/

My server just crashed after 2 days with this error: "19099 Segment violation".

¿Any tips?

We're running several public (usually at least 20 players) OA and CO servers on Ubuntu 11.04 and having absolutely no issues with performance or crashes.

Quote. Same for our servers at SR5 Tactical. Ubuntu 11.04 x64 - OA v1.59, ACE/ACRE and around 20 angry soldiers who weren't given porn magazines and therefore are ready to kill ;)

Why would you use Ubuntu for a server.

Ubuntu server edition.

Our Linux servers actually run better than the Windows servers we had (we actually ran Windows for a few hours before reimaging over to Ubuntu, and the performance was 100x better - all the desync and teleport lag went away).

Why wouldn't you run on Ubuntu server?

Its full of unnessesary shit? Debian is what you want if you're looking for ease of use on a server.

And how is the server edition "full of unnecessary shit"?

Oh really? Strange, none of the Ubuntu server boxes I've installed are bloated.

Funny coming from you who is one of those who seem to have problems with current Linux Beta.

Either way I guess it's up to all to run whatever distro they feel comfortable with.

You asked me why, I told you why. Im minimalistic. I have problems with the current linux beta because it is borked-how is it my fault you idiot.

It may be borked, but only with certain configurations. Several of us here have told you a working configuration.

And I'd still love to see why you consider Ubuntu server to be bloated.

Regarding the crashes: If they're so obvious and important how come so far only 3 (!) people have voted for the open issue in the bugtracker?

Actually, there are several open issues that seem to be related to server crashes (which happens also on Windows btw.). Here's two of them:

http://dev-heaven.net/issues/18757

http://dev-heaven.net/issues/15696

Which goes to show that the problem isn't trivial at all...

My personal opinion (as a Linux server admin) is that these crashes are strongly related to the mission running. Therefore I think it would be interesting to see if there is a pattern leading to a certain mission type. For example in my case I've only seen crashes happening while running Warfare BE so far...

I told you why, It is full of of stuff I do not want, which is why I do Debian minimal installs.

Full of stuff you don't want... like what? That's what I'm trying to ask you.

Well doonbugie, you started by trashing Ubuntu, yet you have problems with a different distro.

Maybe you should have stayed on topic instead.

I'll just quote myself:

^^ we use Ubunto from day one, CTDs on many missions.... 2 weeks ago we have non-dedicated host on 20/20 line and we didn't experience a single crash.

Guys. Ubuntu was developed as a more user friendly desktop derivative of Debian. While I never had trouble with Debian as my desktop OS for more than 15 years many Windows refugees needed a simpler installation process.

If it's broken on one, it's probably broken on the other. Being more release oriented than Debian, Ubuntu releases tend to lag behind the testing and unstable Debian branches. But if you're using stable on Debian you're using practically the same deb packages simply recompiled and retagged on Ubuntu.

Ubuntu isn't so much bloated as it is installed with the kind of things a desktop interactive user wants or needs by default. By comparison Debian is principally a server OS, installing nothing but the bare essentials by default. No X, no GUIs, nothing to waste CPU cycles or accidentally leave any back doors open. doonbugie is correct but tactless.

If you are a Windoze refugee or you want to use Linux as your desktop - Ubuntu is great. If you want a lean optimised server, install Debian from a testing netinst image and select only sshd during the install. Then apt-get your way to happiness and recompile your kernel optimally for your hardware.

It's almost funny though to read a Debian v Ubuntu flame war though. Could be worse - you could be using RatHed Ancient Linux.
