Game servers traditionally are not easy to manage yourself. Admins often have to spend hours just messing around trying to get there server working. LinuxGSM is designed to be a simple as possible allowing Admins to spend less time on management and more time playing Serious Sam 3: BFE.
Below are the basic instructions you need to get your own Serious Sam 3: BFE server up and running.
ss3server should run well on many distros as long as the minimum requirements are met.
glibc => 2.13and
tmux => 1.6should also be compatible with Serious Sam 3: BFE servers.
As Serious Sam 3: BFE requires
glibc => 2.13 normaly you would not be able to install ss3server with a distro running a version less than this. However LinuxGSM provides a fix that allows this to happen More info...
Before installing, you must ensure you have all the dependencies required to run ss3server.

You can get all important and useful details about the server such as passwords, ports, config files etc.
Use debug mode to help you if you are having issues with the server. Debug allows you to see the output of the server directly to your terminal allowing you to diagnose any problems the server might be having.
Server logs are available to monitor and diagnose your server. Script, console and game server (if available) logs are created for the server.
Backup will allow you to create a complete bzip2 archive of the whole server.
LinuxGSM can monitor the game server by checking that the proccess is running and querying it. Should the server go offline LinuxGSM can restart the server and send you an alert. You can use cronjobs to setup monitoring.
LinuxGSM has a Steam Group where you can get general support for LinuxGSM related stuff.
I am the main developer of LinuxGSM. I have several years experience with Linux servers and enjoy learning and working on Linux projects. The most successful project being LinuxGSM which started as a simple Killing Floor Script. I have spent the past few years working on LinuxGSM to improve, document, add features and support more servers. I get great satisfaction and enjoyment from working on LinuxGSM and will continue for a long time to come.
