<div class="IPBDescription">in 24h 10 and more crashes at mapchange</div> only on my linux box (debian kernel 2.6+ and a new glib version) hlds under ns crashes 10 times and more in one day. it is strange - only sometimes on/during mapchange. the crashes arent always during mapchange for the same map.

ill try it with and without metamod, different versions, with and without amxmodx, ...

always the same strange random crashes.

another strange thing are the dissconnects for (most) all players with the message "... not present on client xxx (xxx is a number, not always the same one).

with the same config on my win32 testserver, it runs fine, only the linux port is crap <!--emo&:p--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tounge.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Well, as long as we are slinging insults, maybe your setup is "crap".

    I'm going to take the insult as a joke, and in that case I'll try to help you. Assuming you followed <a href='' target='_blank'>my guide</a> to setup your server and you FULLY updated it to the latest version then I'll bet you have a Linksys router (BEFSR11, BEFSR41 or BEFSR81) you are trying to run the game from behind, am I right? If you are, download the "1.45.7" version of the firmware and load it on the router, it should fix the problem.

    <a href='' target='_blank'></a>

    Just in case that isn't the problem, here is a list of other "crap class" modems and routers for which there is no help but the trash bin:

    thank you for the try but it isent so simple <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    my hardware is hostet on a 100mbit full duplex gbit backbone. there are no "home" routers used. only 1 router is in use for the ip tables and there are no agents running on it (better peformance / ping).

    i think my setup is the best i can do, sorry no linux newbie guide can fix my crashes.

    my feeling is, the crashes always when the mapchange is during or short after a round-reset. today i added -debug to my start parameter to get a log ... so it is always the same error ...

    it is always "signal 11" and "#0 0xb450696d in ?? ()" "#0 0xb450696d in ?? ()".

    i really hope any linux guru can help me <!--emo&:)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    after checking and double checking, testeing and wasting time, im sure only ns crashes randomly during or at the beginning a mapchange.

    no crashes at cs, dod, specialists and classic hl deathmatch. i really hope the ns linux port is more stable at the next version <!--emo&:(--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->
