Hmm, a couple of quick points here...

1) "[~/hlds/css]# ./hlds_run <snip>

Are you actually using hlds? You need you use srcds to run a source server, having found your way to the srcds forums I don't know if this is a typo or not! If not go forth and download the srcds now from if you want to run source based servers (css/hl2dm etc).

2) "+maxplayers 21 +map de_dust -port 27106"

Using the correct server you still need to specify that you want the server to be a counterstrike server, so when you load you need to use "-game cstrike" to indicate you want to play counterstrike else your hlds/srcds is trying to load a hldm game which won't have the de_dust map.

Hope i've got my facts straight and this helps you,
