Issue when running srcds_run with -verify_all

I'm new to and without much further ado, I am sorry to say that I'm already in need of advice.

I am running a SRCDS Left 4 Dead 2 installation on a FreeBSD (8.2-RELEASE (GENERIC)) which've been installed and runs OK. However, if I use -verify_all, like:
./steam -command update -game left4dead2 -verify_all

It fails, every time, with this message:

steam@spirit:~$ ./steam -command update -game left4dead2 -verify_all
Checking bootstrapper version ...
Updating Installation
Failed to create directory
CAsyncIOManager: 0 threads terminating.  0 reads, 0 writes, 0 deferrals.
CAsyncIOManager: 14 single object sleeps, 0 multi object sleeps
CAsyncIOManager: 0 single object alertable sleeps, 0 multi object alertable sleeps

The message "Failed to create directory" doesn't really reveal anything useful at all, expect that it failed to create... something. I have tried to run the same command as root, but failed in the exact same way.

Everything else seems to be running fine. Have any of you seen this before and is it even important to be able to use -verify_all? I am thinking that it perhaps is enough to supply -autoupdate when starting the server(?):

./srcds_run -ip xx.xx.xx.xx -port 27015 -console -game left4dead2 -pidfile -autoupdate +map c1m1_hotel

Any suggestions, ideas, experiences, or magic wands are gratefully appreciated!

Best regards,
I would like to add that my experience with SRCDS is still very limited so please accept my apologies in advance if I have missed previous thread(s) about this matter.
You'll need something like -dir . (for current directory)

I can't believe it was as simple as that :-) I've followed a few guides which specifies the -verify_all command without a -dir and thus I only thought it was necessary to specify a directory for downloading the game content for initial installation which the guides seemed to support.

Being much wiser now, the following works like a charm. I'd have to say, a frustratingly easy fix.

./steam -command update -game left4dead2 -dir . -verify_all

CF, thank you very much, you really made my day with this.

No problem at all. Its usually always something simple. Big Grin
