It tries to look up the hostname of the machine,
you probably need to update your /etc/hosts.

Hi Andreas, 

Thanks a lot for the new beta. I´ve one problem with it:

./bf1942_lnxded.dynamic +game BF1942 +restart 1 +hostServer 1 +dedicated
Bf1942 Error: Debug assertion failed!

Line: 0

Text: Unable to retrive computername

Current confile:

It doesn´t like to start on my RedHat 8.0-Boxes. The config-files are
set up like on 1.31. Nothing really interesting is modified.

I´ll try later on a Debian-Box.

The 1.4 patch is going out today and as promised here
is the first public release of the 1.4 Linux Server beta.

The distribution file can be found on the official site for

- Console output not relevant to end users removed
- Code compiled with GCC 3.2.2 compiler
- Legacy code not used on dedicated servers has been removed
- XML Logger (disabled by default).
- RtR compatibility
- Map changing between RtR/BF1942 works.
- Implemented status monitor and console (+statusMonitor 1)
- Improved average FPS calculations.
- Both statically and dynamically linked binaries included.
- Start script to deal with library issues.

Known issues:

- The COOP game mode has been temporarily disabled.
- Some of the eariler command line parameters for configuring
  GameSpy and ASE ports have not yet been merged in.

For more gameplay specific changes, please see the readme included with
the win32 client patch.

Have fun with your BF1942 servers!
