Core Dump when installing HLDS on Mandrake 9.1
OK... so I am a bit of a noob when it comes to Linux.
I am trying to set up a HLDS on a dual PII 333 system for my own gaming
pleasure and maybe a few friends.
So I found the an article on the server.counter-strike.net site that
talks about setting up a Half Life server.
Here is an excerpt from the instructions :
Next, click here to download the latest full version of the Half-Life
dedicated server for Linux. The most current full version is called
The package is no longer distributed as a tar/gz file. It is distributed
as a .bin file that needs to be directly executed. So, after downloading
the file, make it executable and then execute it. For example:
chmod a+x hlds_l_3111_full.bin
You will be presented with a EULA, after which the usual tar/gz package

You should now be in the directory "/hlds/hlds_l". Now you need to
download the Counter-Strike mod. Click here to download the latest full
version of it for Linux dedicated servers. The most current version is
Once the file has downloaded, type this in the CLI you are at:
tar zxvf cs_>15_full.tar.gz
This will unpack and install the Counter-Strike mod on your dedicated
So the download is OK.
I run CHMOD on the file and receive no errors.
when I ./ the bin file for the next step I get a Segmentation Fault (core
dumped) error and nothing happens.
My Install of Mandrake is VERY minimal as I wanted to conserve space on
my meagre disks.
Is it possible that the bin file is looking for some component in the OS
that I have not installed ??
Any ideas ??
