SRCDS Steam group

Problems I am having
I am using Ubuntu 8.10 to try and run a CS:S server. I have been experiencing some problems along the way.

1) The cstrike folder says I don't have the permission to view it. I can get into it as root just fine using the terminal. But, I would rather prefer to drag and drop files into there.

2) The maps that is starting is de_dust instead of de_dust2. I have changed the map to start with de_dust2 but its still loading de_dust.

3) My server.cfg, I don't think its working correctly. I saved it into cstrike/cfg. The server name is not changing it just stays at the default. I did go to cstrike planet site to get a server.cfg. sv_alltalk 1 doesn't seem to work too.

Can u post your startup line then i may be able to help you.
You say you can't drag and drop files because you are not the owner, use chmod in the terminal to change the ownership, else log in as root if you are using gnome and change the permisions.
Also make sure u are using this command in your startup line +servercfgfile server.cfg
this tell the server to load server.cfg on startup.
1) Use startup parameter +map de_dust2

2) Start your server as root or set permission with chmod.

3) May have something to do with permissions.

You don't have to worry about the errors.
First of all do not run srcds as root .
try to install the cs server as an user.
Quote:sudo ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate

I could not install the server without using sudo. I'll try +servercfgfile server.cfg now.
try "sudo chmod 777 -R ." in your server's directory. then all files should be readable and writeable by any user. (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)
Do not ask technical questions via PM!
Thank you everyone, everything seems to be working now.

Edit: Didn't want to double post. I went to port forward and everything but my friends still can't seem to connect to my server. I got 2 of them to join, but the others are having problems. Am I doing something wrong in my end, that the others can't connect into it?

you are behind a firewall/router? tell us more about your network configuration... (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

Yes, I am behind a router. Followed the steps to port forward. I also tried DMZ to my server host computer. Still friends can't join it. I got some random people on the server a while ago, but don't know why my friends can't. My router is a D-Link WBR-1310, trying to host from a laptop that is using wireless connection.
Maybe it is a firewall on your server? I dont know what ubuntu is installing by default.

how do your friends try to connect? do you give them the ip and they type them into the console (connect <ip>:<port>)? everything else might be problematic. also look if your router supports upnp. I have found, that srcds tells upnp routers to setup a port forwarding. maybe it destroys your port forwarting (and uses a different external port).

btw: dont expect a fair connection quality even if you get this working. What is your internet connection? DSL? Check, if the bandwidth is sufficient (the upload it the limiting part! it has to be 0.5 MBit/s for a 20 slot server at the very least), and replace the WLAN by a copper line. (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

Cable. I know its not going to be great. But, I just wanted to play with some friends who lives close around my area. Without people bothering us. They connect by the console thing, one can connect off me. The others try to connect from us two, from the console, and adding the server to favourite with the ip and port. None of those work.

It is a Upnp router I guess.
