Try running the dedicated server bin alone, it should download each file.

when i first started playing this game i was on linux and i did host a sever from home.

this is the guide i used:
Code: [Select]
AA25.ORG AMERICAS ARMY 2.5ASSIST DEDICATED SERVER README
LINUX SERVER INSTRUCTIONS

First you must have an existing americas army 2.5 installation,
If you do not follow these instuctions to download and install it...
------------
Login to your server on the console or remotely using SSH:
Move into your home folder:
cd ~

Download the installation package:
wget http://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/AmericasArmy/Linux_v2.5.0/armyops250-linux.run

Set executable and execute:
chmod +x armyops250-linux.run
./armyops250-linux.run

When asked for an installation path enter: ~/armyops
Say no to symbolic links
Select Base Install
Say no to startup menu entrys

After some time the installation will complete.
You may now delete the installation package:
rm armyops250-linux.run
------------


2.5ASSIST DEDEICATE SERVER INSTALLATION:
Move into your americas army 'System' folder
On our fresh install you would use:
cd ~/armyops/System

On an existing 25Assist(GUI) Installation use:
cd ~/25Assist/armyops/System

IMPORTANT, Rename server-bin to serverx
mv server-bin serverx
chmod +x serverx

Download and extract 2.5assist:
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/aa25assist/Binaries/ldedisrv.zip
unzip ldedisrv.zip
chmod +x server-bin

Now edit the aa25.ini file with your required settings:
nano aa25.ini

Start the Server:
./server-bin GLOBAL map-filename

(replace map-filename with your choosen map, bridge, insurgent_camp, radio_tower, etc.)
(Optional command-line arguments  -Port=1716  -Multihome=0.0.0.0  override settings in aa25.ini)


Additional pb commands can be added by creating ServerMessage.cfg in the "pb" folder and adding them there.

You might have to install this to get it to work:
apt-get install lib32stdc++6

I run this OS: Linux  Debian 3.2.96-3 x86_64

I have problem with this step
Code: [Select]
Download the installation package:
wget http://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/AmericasArmy/Linux_v2.5.0/armyops250-linux.run
I get this error:
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
but some days ago i got this:No such file or directory

is it only me or is the link dead?
maybe the file contains 32-bit executables and I use Debian 64-bi tarchitecture.

btw. check this out https://linuxgsm.com/#features could we add Assist?

You need to use 32bit for AA and Assist.

Not necessary, e.g for 64-Bit Debian 7 you can try add
Code: [Select]
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libc6-i386
I not sure & I am not a pro but wanna give a try.
My Hoster(nowadays any proper high-end Hoster) doesn't support Linux distributions lower 64-Bit, only with 32-bit compatibility packages.

Please, were can I download a current working replacement for armyops250-linux file for rootserver owner?
Could this https://sourceforge.net/projects/aa25assist/files/Binaries/25Assist-Linux.zip/download work for me?

If yes, than I need some help to fit "Set executable and execute:" right.
Code: [Select]
chmod +x armyops250-linux.run
./armyops250-linux.run

That's what I meant, you need to use the 32bit libararies. The OS can be 64bit.
