Hello,

I managed to get my server listed by dpmaster, but when I try to connect with a 0.8.0 client it stays in "Awaiting Gamestate".

I know JockeTF ( http://rainbow.furver.se/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1212 ) made some binary using 0.7.0 engine with new protocol, and 0.8.0 clients can connect to it.

Though, I'm wondering about a viable solution. I don't know exactly what's wrong with actual binaries. Maybe I made some mistakes too Wink

I'm having this problem too trying to connecting to my local server ... it keeps in awaiting gamestate. When I had the 0.7.7 server everything was working. I just replaced files to upgrade Wink

I tried to set up a server (on tuxfamily hosting service) with the custom binary I found on furver, and it uses 95% CPU, so I had to stop it.
Do other admins using this workaround experience the same ?

I have generated a binary that works. I don't know what went wrong with the one I created for OA... it must have been a failed patching of the source because it worked in all betas.

The source is here: http://brie.ostenfeld.dk/~poul19/public_files/oa/dev080/ioquake3serverFix.tar.bz2

Players that want to host LAN games will most likely have the problem too.

The reason why it is source was because it was most urgent for server admins and many couldn't run the binaries because they used a newer version of glibc.

Pre-compiled binaries are available now:

Perfect. I've spread the word to all the server admins I know.

Is this file for all users who just want to connect and play or is this a server only file? I'm having trouble connecting to a server, so I'm hoping this can help me.

It will need to be installed on the server.

Installing it on the client will not help you join servers and is not necessary to join fixed servers. You will need it to host a LAN game though (because there you will be the server)

Ok, so it's safe to say that any server I am having trouble connecting with likely doesn't have this file installed? Is there anything I can do client side to get in?

I think there is no workaround client-side.

Why would the admin let a server running with nobody able to connect in ? Cheesy Least thing is to test it ...

BTW, maybe OA mainpage should advertise this hotfix, not every admin think about checking server posts.

Good idea. I am having trouble connecting to the digichalk server, hope someone over there takes notice of this fix.

Are you referring to a different set of files?

http://download.tuxfamily.org/openarena/rel/080/oa080-serverfix.zip

There are Linux i386 and x86_64 binaries, both the regular client and dedicated server.

no, those are the files.

it turned out that i had downloaded and installed the .deb package for ubuntu, and it did not support the patch. [it used modified .bin executables in system directories]

i got the original .zip and i see the 2 executables .i386.

*****BUT*****   now i cant get them to run.

the default openarena.i386 runs, but the patched one will not even start.
the default, as well as the patched oa_ded.i386 will not run at all.

i tried opening either in terminal, but it keeps saying permission denied, and i have used the sudo command, as well as trying to be a superuser.

what gives??

You probably need to mark them executable, chmod +x openarena.i386 (or, another example, if you know what you're doing: chmod 755 openarena.i386).

Or, if u are owner of them you can go to properties, permissions and "allow executing file as program", no need of terminal.

OK, I am a dumbass.
How do I use this oa080-serverfix?

I am running a dedicated server on a Ubuntu box with deb file install from getdeb.

Where am I to drop these files?

/usr/games/
/usr/share/games/openarena/
or
~/.openarena/

In the past, I ran the openarena-server +exec server.cfg command to launch the server.
Does that stay the same, or do I have to do something different now...once I get the files moved to the proper directory?

Linux uses $PATH to locate files which you can run without specifying the directory its in.
You can type:
Code:
echo $PATH
To see which directories are searched within.
And you can locate where from a command was called by typing :
Code:
which name_of_the_command

$PATH may not be set up to search within the current directory, that means you have to type "./binary_name" to run it, instead of just typing "binary_name".

When you start your server, you have to find the binary you run.
If you installed some .deb package, you can find out which files have been installed by typing :
Code:
dpkg-query -L package_name # (ie: openarena)
Seek binaries inside the list, and see where they've been installed, probably in /usr/games/openarena-0.x.x

The content of the serverfix zip file has to replace the binary you usually use to start you server, so check after some oa_ded.* file, and replace it with the one in the .zip.
Then make sure it is executable to the user who will run the server (do not start it being root, oh well you can't with ubuntu ...)
Code:
ls -l | grep oa_ded
If not executable,
Code:
chmod +x oa_ded.*
should do it.

Use right parameters/script to start your server, and it should work.

You cannot use the serverfix with versions installed from deb files. I have not tested getdeb but I believe they obey to the Debian way of doing things by splitting it up in platform specific and platform independent files. Serverfix does not support that. You will need to get getdeb to create a new binary package.

You might be able to do it by starting the serverfix binary with "+set fs_path /usr/share/openarena/" or where the data files are.

Hmmm.
Thanks for the replies.
Someone might want to fix the wiki.
(DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/LinuxInstall#Ubuntu
I'll try that stuff out and see how it goes.

on 0.7.0 the files default to to the homepath... ie. ./openarena

on 0.8.0 its basepath, where the main exe ./baseoa is.
