Just as the Thread Says,
How well does a CS Dedicated server work on a linux server, and if i use linux to launch a dedi, what should the system specs be, since Linux doesnt use as much resources as Windowx Xp.
If you're not that familiar with unix operating systems, I'll suggest stick with windows if you can. I personally STILL think windows performs better. Yes, I've done a year of hosting on both platforms, on 4 different server specs. I think only the guru's for the OS can really optimize the way HLDS runs though. But I'm sure their binaries will get better. But atleast with ME, windows is running better.
Can you tell me what you are planning on running, and if you're going to use that T1 you're getting for *cough* 40/month?

from my experience windows is better for hlds. since then, supposedly alfred has optimized the binaries a bit. i got hlds running on linux, and it was an awesome learning experience. if that interests you, give it a shot.

Im gonna be running a Counter Strike on a very limited computer i havent done anything with for like a year now. It just collecting dust on the shelve.
a Pentium roughly 200 or 300 Mhz with 256 k ram.
Thats why i want Linux it doesnt use that much resources.
I will mostly like be overclocking the computer, ill only have like maybe 8 to 12 slots free.
OHH lol I think VALVe's linux test server they got up was super low end specs, too. I think it was a 12 slot? Not sure...
I guess you can try linux a shot then. GL ;)
I run it on LINUX Red Hat Enterprise to be exact and it works fine. Its currently running a 20 slot public thats filled about 6-8 hours of the day with no problems. If you need help setting it up let me know. I haven't tried it on Windows so I couldn't give a comparison.
Its currently running on a box at theplanet.com and the specs are Cele 2.4Ghz 1 Gig of RAM and it runs fine.
