Strange srcds random freeze
#1
Hi,

Just for 25 mins ago my server (which was full at the time of the freeze crashed/freezed. It stopped responding to ping, and the console window was freezed. No error messages or anything, it just froze.


Server OS: Debian Lenny, 2.6.26-2-amd64 (when it is an intel processor?)
Processor: Intel Core2Duo E4600 @ 2.6GHz
Ram: 2Gb
Game(s): Team Fortress 2
Start Up Command: Nothing wrong with the startup script, as the other server havent froze yet. Still posting;
screen -A -m -d -S srcds_tf22 /srcds_tf2/orangebox/./srcds_run -console -game tf -pidfile /srcds_tf2/srcds.pid +map cp_orange_x3 -debug +maxplayers 24 -autoupdate +ip xxxxxx -port 27016 +fps_max 66
Admin Mods: SourceMod, Metamod. Not any other plugins other than the default sourcemod ones.

Any idea on what's wrong? And yeah, i know the kernel is shitty old. I don't know how to update it without re-compiling with a different kernel. So if someone could help me with that too it'd be most appriciated. I'm running with the stock Debian kernel atm. Not the best, but it'll have to do until i get some help. I can't afford another 200 pounds re-install.

its hard to tell. do you find anything in the system log (usually /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog)? maybe your hardware is broken?

ps: I really would recommend a newer kernel at least for security reasons. And amd64 just means 64 bit. amd invented that architecture and intel adopted it ;-)

Do not ask technical questions via PM!

I have downloaded the newest one .39.2 or something, and i'm installing it now. Just for the security sakes, i've enabled all SATA and IDE drivers.
