Tutorial 2 – Dayz Epoch Linux Server – Download Files to Server – Commands (1.0.5.1)

Here are the commands used in the tutorial video (Download all Files to Server)

Chapter 0:
(as root if you need to install something missing)
aptitude search wget
aptitude search tar
aptitude search unzip
aptitude search p7zip
aptitude search bittorrent

If packages are not yet installed:
apt-get install p7zip (e.g. if p7zip is missing). If you use other linux derivates than Debian have a look how to check/install packages for your system.

Chapter 1:
(as user who runs the server later on)
mkdir steamcmd
cd steamcmd
wget http://media.steampowered.com/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
tar -xvzf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
./steamcmd.sh (start steamCMD application)
In SteamCMD enter:
login xxxxx yyyyy (xxxxx=Steam username / yyyyy=Steam password)
@sSteamCmdForcePlatformType "windows" (Force steamCMD to think we are on windows)
force_install_dir ./arma2 (Force the installation dir name to arma2)
app_update 33910 (download arma2 files – command may be entered 2 times)

!! If for whatever reason you get ‘No subscription’ even if you own the game in steam…the app id is maybe different (could also be 33900…maybe also others)…then create a desktop shortcut for the game from steam via right mouse button on the game name. In the properties of the desktop shortcut the game app id can be found. !!

Chapter 2:
We are still in the steamCMD application:
force_install_dir ./arma2oa
app_update 33930
quit (leave steamCMD application)
mv arma2 ..
mv arma2oa ..

Chapter 3:
mkdir epoch_client_files
cd epoch_client_files
wget http://goo.gl/IN1Pt1
mv IN1Pt1 DayZ_Epoch_Client_1.0.5.1_Release.7z.torrent
btdownloadcurses.bittorrent DayZ_Epoch_Client_1.0.5.1_Release.7z.torrent
7zr x DayZ_Epoch_Client_1.0.5.1_Release.7z

Chapter 4:
mkdir epoch_server_files
cd epoch_linux_server
wget https://github.com/denisio/Dayz-Epoch-Linux-Server/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip

Chapter 5:
mkdir arma2oa_server
cd arma2oa_server
wget http://www.arma2.com/downloads/update/a2oa-server-1.63.112555.tar.bz2
tar xvfj a2oa-server-1.63.112555.tar.bz2

Chapter 6:
Check which libc is installed on your system:
/lib32/libc.so.6 (depending on where your 32 bit libs are located)
or
dpkg -l libc6

If version is < 2.16: mkdir libctmp cd libctmp wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/glibc-doc_2.19-10_all.deb dpkg -x libc6_2.19-7_i386.deb axtract
