View Full Version : Ded. server on FreeBSD

09-17-2003, 07:16 PM
Hi guyz,

I have installed the dedicated server on some FreeBSD boxes - but it fails to load.

On 4.8 it will do absolutely nothing - it only uses all available CPU.

On 4.5 it will load half the way - it stops just after this:
------- Game Initialization -------
gamename: basejk
gamedate: Sep 9 2003
...and uses all available CPU.

The files are not corrupted or anything missing - I have tested them succesfully on a RH8 box.

My boxes are running JK2, Q2, Q3 and ET successfully - anyone has a tip on what I might try ?

Thanx in advance.

Did you recompile the server from source? If not... linux != bsd and binaries compiled for linux arent going to automagically run. There is a program that DOES do it though, I forget the name though, since I dont actually use BSD. For some reason I'm thinking 'elf' but thats not it.

Well, in the readme-file it states that I can use it on FreeBSD, as long as I 'brandelf -t Linux' the game-file.
