[linux] Dedicated Server - version mismatch - how to update?
I finally got the Sam3 dedicated server running on my linux box, but when I try to connect to it I'm getting a version mismatch error. Checking the log suggests the server is still version 154741:
LOG: Core version: $Version: distro_Sam3_PC; SeriousSam3_Executables-Linux-Final; 154741 2012-05-09 10:38:00 @builderl02; Linux-Static-Final-DedServer$

I was wondering how I can get the dedicated server updated.

Have tried
./steam -command update -game "SeriousSam3-linux" -dir [sam3-path]
but this only gets me to version 154741 apparently.

System is openSuse 12.2 i586 / steam GUI not installed / dedicated server installed via hldsupdatetool.

Sorry for the delay guys. Meant to reply to this originally, but skipped it accidentally.

Don't use the hldsupdatetool, that's obsolete. You must use the new "SteamPipe" system.

For me not :(
I´ve just updated the game and when I want run a server it fails and in the terminal I see something like this

en (SIGABRT) (core dumped [obraz pamÄi uloĹžen]) ./Sam3_DedicatedServer "$@"

Thanks for any ideas

EDIT1: I tried to rewrite files in "Content/SeriousSam3/" to lowercase (the folders Content and SeriousSam3 as well) but still getting the same error

Which distro are you using? 32bit or 64bit? On my openSuse (12.2 - i586) I did not need to change any file/folder names to lower case (and I was wondering if I had to).

I just noticed you said you updated the game. I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but I did not update, I did a clean and complete reinstall.

Ubuntu server 12.04 LTS 64b. Yep everything is installed (libs, lin32 etc...)

Yeah after my unsuccessful update I did complete reinstall as well. It´s strange but the error shows again :(

Take a look at this kind of error in terminal "./Sam3_DedicatedServer "$@"" - its like wrong argument count or ST like that...

I run the server with these commands "./ +exec servercfgfile"
rubregg Dec 13, 2012 @ 2:06am 
Have you tried absolute paths?
./[path]/[to]/ +exec /[path]/[to]/[configfile]
Other than that I'm at my wit's end here, sry. :/

Are you running the dedicated server updated from the Steam client? If you are using betas, make sure server and game are in the same beta.

Otherwise try using the above to download the server in a separate directory from the game and main steam.

Still got the error :(

Hey guys,

I´m really desperate!

@AlenL: I tried and doesnt work. Still got the error...

When I run ss3:
$ ./ +port free_port

And this is what I get on the terminal:
LOG: Loaded "/path_to_ss3/ss3/Bin/".
INF: GameEnv API: Steam
[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.

My log looks like yours except for the lines I quoted. Maybe the server doesn't find your steam files for some reason?

Edit - Correction:
Sorry, wrong info. I just checked and while I don't have these lines in the log, they are there in the console output (which I usually don't see, I've added "&" to my command line).

@rubregg: Thank you for reply! Is there a file where I set the path to the steam dir? Or create a file where I set AppID ? Im really desperate, man :(
