Information on this page is based on this thread in the SME Server forums. First off we are going to make a user called: hlds. It is better if we don't run our server as root, but rather we run it as a normal user, just so that there is less chances of a security breach. After hlds has updated you need to decide what game you want to install. For this how to I will just be installing a normal Half-Life server, but you are free to install a cstrike or czero etc This will tell hlds to get all the files required for a normal Half-Life server. If you want to have a counterstrike server, all you need to do is change the -game valve to -game cstrike Or if you want condition zero: -game czero I don't know the commands for any other games, but they should be fairly easy to find using google. Getting the game files may take some time , but after hlds has downloaded them, you'll be back at the prompt. Now we can start our server. Use the following command to start your server.
