Hi

I'm trying to get TO running under Ubuntu 12.04 server wth no x/gui. I found that its possible to run gui software on a headless server with xvfb

I tried runnin the following but not luck getting the server running.

nohup xvfb-run -a overload.sh ./overload -dedicated -mission xa/notc/mis/eth1/mission.mis &

This is the log from nohp.

The log seems to tell you the path is wrong: "Level file xa/notc/mis/eth1/mission.mis not found."

What about simply "nohup xvfb-run -a overload.sh ./overload"?

I think the ./overload is not needed. Maybe "nohup xvfb-run -a overload.sh"? Note that I have no experience with this stuff.

Almost there, the path to the mission file is wrong. Try content/xa/notc/mis/eth1/mission.mis

Also a suggestion, since there are already servers running eth1 and eth3, why not run eth4?

awesome, thanks!

Anything else you had to change? Would be cool to have it documented for others.

Not much just some setting in the defaults.cs files but I'll do a write up shortly on what I did.

Ok this set up is for Ubuntu Server 12.04 but should be the same for any Debain/Ubuntu based distro

If you don't already have the required libraries do the following in the terminal

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch


Now you need to install xvfb and the required libraries.

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
sudo apt-get install xvfb x11-xkb-utils xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi xfonts-scalable xfonts-cyrillic x11-apps


Download Terminal Overload the from the main site http://www.terminal-overload.org

Un zip/Untar the install file into your home dir or where ever you want.

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
tar -zxvf terminal-overload-0.2.0-linux32.tar.gz


In the directory where you untared the terminal files go into notc/server and look for defaults.cs Edit that file and add the following lines

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
// Information about the server
$Pref::Server::Name = "Server Name Here";
$Pref::Server::Info = "More Server Info Here";


Change the Server Name Here and More Server If Here line with your own

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
// Misc server settings.
$Pref::Server::MaxPlayers = 20;


Change the MaxPlayers to the desired amount.

Upload or save the file with the new changes.

Now go into the terminal overload directory and type in the following to start your server

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
nohup xvfb-run -a ./overload -dedicated -mission content/xa/notc/mis/eth4/mission.mis &


where you see eth4 you can replace with with eth1 or eth3 to run the server with a different map.


That should be it. Since this is new to me that all I got so far. As I learn to control the server I'll add more info. Also to kill the server you'll have to get the PID of the overload session. Type in top in terminal and look for the overload name and then kill -9 PID to kill the current server session.
