Hi Again,

Running a Linux server is not a simple task...You just don't directly run the server executable file(not even in windows).

I gave you the link to the files last week.

You need:

opflashres_linuxserver196.zip (this is a compressed file, you need to decompress it (size 9,419,824)

and

linuxarch10.zip

You also need a bash (-sh) script file (ofpserver)

sample:

#!/bin/bash

#

# ofpserver: Operation Flashpoint Linux dedicated server control script

# © 2003 BIStudio

# OFP binary version must be 1.92 or later!

sleep 5s

You also need a libs folder inside of the ofpserver folder.

files:

libresolv.so.2

libnss_files.so.2

libnss_dns.so.2

libc.so.6

ld-linux.so.2

In addition the normal ofp stuff this is what it should look like.

tolower.c

tolower

server

ofpserver

ofp-server.cfg

ofp-server-1.96.shar

/bin

/data

/addons

/users

/libs

Server Readme:

Operation Flashpoint: Resistance - Linux Standalone Server 1.96

===============================================================

Copyrigt © 2002-2003 Bohemia Interactive Studio and Codemasters. All rights reserved.

Installation instructions:

==========================

1. Following programs must have been installed on your Linux-box:

uudecode, gunzip, gcc. Optional: md5sum (for setup integrity check)

1a. On some newer verions of Linux (this was reported for RedHat 9

and Gentoo linux 2.4.20) the NSCD deamon must be installed to

run OFP server successfully. Caching of DNS would be sufficient.

2. Copy the whole "OperationFlashpoint" directory from Windows

to some Linux-directory (OFP). DON'T DO ANY DATA CONVERSIONS

(even "dos2unix" translation of text files is not necessary).

Example: you can use PKZIP (WinZip, PowerArchiver, etc.) on

Windows and "unzip" on Linux.

Don't use upper case letters in the OFP directory name

(/home/bob/ofp will be good, /home/bob/OperationFlashpoint

may cause some troubles).

OFP directory should contain subdirectories "Addons", "Bin",

"Campaigns", etc.

3. Copy the "server-x.xx.shar.gz" (x.xx is version number) file into

the OFP directory. Unpack and install it with commands:

ofp$ gunzip server-x.xx.shar.gz

ofp$ sh server-x.xx.shar

Watch the messages - they will inform you whether your installation

is successful.

4. Dedicated server can be started in foreground:

ofp$ ./server

Or in background:

ofp$ nohup ./server > out.txt 2> err.txt &

[1] <pid>

5. Running server can be stopped by pressing CTRL+C (foreground)

or by executing:

$ kill -s SIGINT <pid>

Where <pid> is process-id of mother server thread (printed out in

"nohup" command).

6. From 1.92 OFP server has a new feature: command-line parameter

"-pid=<pid_file>". It causes creation of <pid_file> with

PID of root OFP process. If IP port specified in "-port=<nn>"

parameter is busy (in usage), OFP will terminate immediately

and <pid_file> won't be written..

7. The "ofpserver" script is provided for automatic server

start/restart/status query/etc. Please be sure to edit

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS in lines 14 to 20 !

After this is done, install (hard-link?) the script into

"/etc/rc.d/init.d/ofpserver" file. After that it can be managed

by "chkconfig" (see info/man).

Linuxarch Reademe:

---------------------------------------------------------

·: OFPR Linux server file archiver v1.0 :·

---------------------------------------------------------

This batch file will archives files needed by the OFP

Resistance Linux dedicated server from an OFP Resistance

installation to a TAR archive, which can then be extracted

on a linux machine.

To use, extract all files in this ZIP file to the directory

you have Operation Flashpoint Resistance installed at, and

run "mksvfiles.bat". When the batch file is done, a file

named "servfiles.tar" (or "servfiles.tar.gz" if you chose

to GZip it) will be generated. Take this file to a linux

machine and extract it, then install the Linux dedicated

server to the directory as instucted in its readme.

The batch file can also archive addons and mpmissions from

the OFP installation, GZIP the TAR archive and then delete

the files used by the batch file. These prodecuders will be

asked by the batch file when its run.

Without addons and mpmissions the archive file will be about

220MB in size, so ensure you have that much free space on

the drive. GZIP'ing the archive will need more space, but

will decrease the final archive size significantly.

REMEMBER that the tar, or gz file will have copyrighted

material in it from Operation Flashpoint so distributing

it for other than your own use is illegal!

---------------------------------------------------------

I don't know linux so I can't be much more help. Once it's running I can help with performace tuning in the "ofp-server.cfg" file.

I know a couple of people who have run linux servers and maybe can help.

yeah i have all of this except opflashres_linuxserver196.zip, si ill try this again today after my 10 hours of hell (work).

but also i think here i will copy and paste and keep all names of everything at its default till its running...

thank you for info.... research was killing me ...

just some extra un useful info ... the server im setting this up on,

Linux, Xeon 6 core CPU, 24 GB of RAM.

12 cores with hyper threading.. But hyper cores are like only half-cores.

100mbit connected to a backbone of 34gigbit

we ran 2 arma oa servers from here , so Im thinking ofp resistance rts3 is going to run sweeeeeet :o)

My server uses Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (just realized this, probably moving to 12.04 LTS soon; hopefully it won't break anything).

I hope that helps!

As server 10.04 is good enough, noting new needed for OFP server added in 12.04 :)

And afik, BIS have yet to release CWA (1.99) Linux binaries.

ey , thats what id like to see is a 1.99 linux server file.

but by the way server is fixed thanks to killswitch and the rest of you.

there is now a new but old ofp resistance server KaRRiLLioN new Boot Camp with rts and addons.

I dont know if i can post link to addons here so anyone interested pm me for link.

also Anguis, i think illl try your set up see if it works better than the one i have.

just need to make back up so i dont stalk killswitch anymore lol.

Nope

but as I have understand lately, there is a patch allowing 1.99 players connecting to 1.96 servers.

The answer to your previous post is:

You are running different OFP home-dir than Ang

You do also run different mods and your log-files is named different.
