Linux server errors


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up a JKA server on an old PC, I installed Puppy Linux (most lightweight distro I could find) and made /usr/local/games/ja using Puppy's file manager. mkdir returned an error, when I open the file manager it defaults to /root/ just in case that matters. I then made a /base inside of /ja and copied the assets 1 2 3 and 0 files to it. I have in the /ja folder: linuxjampded, server.cfg, jampgamei386.so, readme.txt, and server options.txt. I copied the library to /usr/lib but when I run the server, it says it cannot exec server.cfg and then also says it cannot exec jampgame and quits...what should I do to make it work?

Here is what the Linux console says:

This was on the Puppy box, I changed the dir to /root/games/ja (and /base) but no difference. I chmodded the file to a+rwx and it still won't work. I also installed it on my Ubuntu desktop and it did the same thing.
