SRCDS Steam group

Non working CS:S dedicated server
OK so i've gone thru about 3/4 different ways of getiing and installing a HLDS/CS:S server and i dont know where i'm going wrong anymore. To start with in all the tutorials / fourm pages etc everyone seems to use a "srcds_" file to start their server, i only have "hlds_" executible files with all my different installation leading me to wonder if this is the reason for the rest of my troubles. I've used both the 'hldsupdatetool.bin' from the steam site and also a 450mb older version of HLDS which i updated, both giving me the same results.

the command i'm using for starting my server is :

/hlds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16 -autoupdate -steamuser **** -steampass ****"

now after running this i get the following, leaving me with no runing server, wont change maps or anything.. :

Auto detecting CPU
Using Pentium II Optimised binary.
Auto-restarting the server on crash
Updating server using Steam.
Checking bootstrapper version ...

I did used to get the following errors in here, which i sorted by just creating blank versions of the missing files / dirs

scandir failed:/usr/steam/srcds_l/./valve/SAVE
scandir failed:/usr/steam/srcds_l/./platform/SAVE

couldn't exec language.cfg

couldn't exec listip.cfg
couldn't exec banned.cfg

Sooo... now u've gone to sleep from reading this, and help would be gr8

Looks like instead of downloading counter-strike source, you downloaded just counter-strike.

remember that when you download/update the game, it is -game "Counter-Strike Source" and not -game cstrike

also that name and password stuff isnt needed anymore.
I created a new user on my server box and downloaded hldsupdate and steam and used it to install SRCDS, which is now up and running.

I never made or used a steam user/pass for any of it.

./steam -command update "Counter-Strike Source" -dir . -verify_all

installed it all from scratch, and my srcds commandline is this:

./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate

NOTE my previous install attempts failed due to using the old steam executable and installing as root. Try installing with a new user account.
