FOR QUAKEWORLD SERVER ADMINS ONLY

Lately some security issues have been reported on *nix systems.

Since most QuakeWorld servers run on Linux, our beloved QuakeWorld servers are affected by such issues and are usually updated.

It is recommended that all QuakeWorld server admins update their servers when there's a new version.

Well, good news for nQuakesv users - nQuakesv ships a script to update the binaries automatically. Look for update_binaries.sh file


just run the script, choose the mirror (fnu.nu is the most reliable for now) look on what is printed.

If there's an error on the output, you must download the binaries yourself, and replace the old ones manually!! See next post

Example error:

Happy admining!! *

If there's an error, you'll have to update manually:
EDIT: see d2 post next!

nQuake includes the following binaries:
  • mvdsv
  • progs.so (its the ktx binary)
  • qtv.bin
  • qwfwd.bin



Check what binary needs updating and look in the forum/irc for the link with the updated binary or just get the source code from github and compile it. Usually Deurk's and Dimman's repositories are updated.

find if your linux is 64bit or 32bit by typing:
uname -i
The output can be:
64 bit -> i686 ; x86_64 ; x64 (...)
32 bit -> i386 ; x86 ; unknown

If the output is an error, yes it helps!

If so, ignore #2 and do what d2 says.
