How to Install Counter Strike Server on Linux - Non Steam

This guide will explain you how to run Counter strike server on linux

Linux can reduce lag,handle high rates & pingboost the server.
I assume you have some knowledge of linux & have uncompress installed
Open console
Type following

mkdir HLDS



chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin


After we launch hldsupdatetool.bin ,it will ask to agree with terms & conditions,just type YES & press ENTER

then type this

chmod +x steam

./steam -command update -game cstrike -dir .

Counter strike server is being installed

It will take sometime depending on your connection as it has to download ~300mb

When is server should launch it with these parameters

Automatically update the server when Steam updates are released

The HLDS mod you want to run

Amount of players to allow

The map to start the server with

Port on which server will run. Default is 27015

Type this in console to run server in background

./hlds_run -game cstrike -autoupdate +maxplayers 20 +map de_aztec > /dev/null 2>&1 &

You can change the appropriate parameter like players & map

"> /dev/null is" at the end will send no output
"&" at the will run server in background
