Okay, here you go. The UT3 beta demo server for GNU/Linux is now available!
Please keep in mind:
- This is a BETA build. If something looks buggy, it probably is. Some
bugs are Linux-specific, some happen on Windows, too. We are interested
in hearing about them all.
- Please be sure to keep the crash data from your server's logs if you
experience a crash. You may send it to me directly (not the mailing
list, unless you want to discuss it).
- This build does not have optimizations enabled, since I want to track
down real bugs first. If you want to gauge what sort of hardware it will
need, expect it to take less for final builds.
- Most of the admin guides for the Windows server apply here, so look to
them for HOWTOs and documentation. These mailing lists are already full
of good advice, too.
Here's the file (hosted at GoDaddy's facility in Arizona):
Here's a mirror on Dreamhost's network in California:
It's about 648 megabytes.
Download, unpack, and run UT3-linux-server-betademo/Binaries/ut3demo ...
a quick-start command line looks something like this:
MYLOGIN and MYPASSWORD are required and should be replaced with a valid
gamespy profile (you can create one in the game on Windows). Your server
needs it's own profile, so don't reuse the one you plan to play the game
Feel free to mirror the server files. I'll be posting a list of known
mirrors tomorrow. I only list mirrors that don't require membership to
download the file and have sane mimetypes.
I will probably be hotfixing things based on feedback separate from the
Windows version (small downloads, not the whole package again), so your
feedback is very important!
Admin stuff should go to the ut3servers list. Don't send it to
ut3 at icculus.org (mostly that'll be focused on the Linux/Mac clients
eventually, whereas all the expert admins hang out on ut3servers).
Thank you all for your patience...the Unreal admin community has
continued to impress me every day for many years now, and your civility
over the last 24 hours was no exception.
