I am currently running Debian 5 on vmware on my desktop. I am trying to familiarize myself with linux and to work on a good kernel to deploy on an actual dedicated server.

My computer: Core i7 920, 6gb ddr3 memory...
As far as the kernel goes, I am using a recommended one from the following url:

Here is my command line:
./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust2 +fps_max 0 -tickrate 100 -autoupdate -maxplayers 12 -pingboost3

I do not like the stability of the FPS, the tickrate stays @ 100 constant, except for when connecting to the server and when the round starts.

Does anyone have a recommendation for how I go about optimizing linux even further?
Can be a Probem of vmware and the desktop. Change to a init level without xserver or just quit it. All you need and should use is the linux shell. If you already did that give debian a partiotion and install it on the harddrive so that you can boot it from harddrive without emulation. Your system is probalby not the cause for the drops.
./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust2 +fps_max 0 -tickrate 100 -autoupdate -maxplayers 12 -pingboost3
should be:
./srcds_run -game cstrike -tickrate 100 -autoupdate +maxplayers 12 +map de_dust2 +fps_max 0
yea, it is installed as a partition through vmware, and I have changed the code.
you can't expect to run game servers inside a VM very well... be lucky that it runs that good, I would have expected it much worse. (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)
Do not ask technical questions via PM!
Ok, then I will install Debian on a pc lying around. Hopefully I can get something good on a p4 1gb.
