Yesterday I started tinkering with nQuakesv Linux servers for the first time. It worked great on Amazon VPS (their EC2 alternative) with Ubuntu and I got the de.refragged.com servers up.

However, when trying the same thing on host1plus.net and their Debian option in South Africa, the start servers script starts spamming that it can't find mvdsv although it looks identical to the Amazon setup. Any ideas what might be wrong?

I'm a Linux noob so might be something very basic.

Got fed up with the problem and realised there was the option to install the exact same OS image as on the Amazon servers, so i did that and now it works:

Servers in Johannesburg, South Africa
za.refragged.com:27500 - FFA
za.refragged.com:28501 - Allround #1
za.refragged.com:28502 - Allround #2
za.refragged.com:28503 - Allround #3
za.refragged.com:28504 - Allround #4

You are probably missing packages like libc etc...

chmod +x ./foo
this ensures that you're actually allowed to exec it. you could also try 700 instead of +x or whatever.

ldd ./foo
should show the paths of all the libraries that your binary was linked against, and 'not found' for any libraries that are not installed. you should then be able to figure out which packages to install to fix that... or at least you'll know what to report so that others can tell you what you need to install.

ldd -f ./foo
that should show any symbols that are missing. this happens when the binary was compiled on a different distro or version (commonly from glibc symbol versioning). If this prints anything mroe than without -f then you'll probably need to compile it yourself, linking against your specific target system's library versions.
