abfackelns Server Utilities (ASU) for Unreal Tournament

ASU Unreal Tournament for Linux News

2003-07-26
Here is an ASU patch for the UT 451 Patch from UTPG.  This adds many, many security fixes to the regular 436 server -- I even added the fix to the login crash bug ("LoadClassMismatch" in Core.int) so it is highly recommended even though a 451 server does generally require more CPU than the regular 436 server.  And once again, here is the UTPureRC6E patch for ASU.  But, also once again, be warned:  Rumour has it that this version of UTPure has that old problem which does not allow Linux or Mac clients to connect unless they install the UTPureRC6E package manually and empty their cache directory.  At this time, I have not actually confirmed if this is true or not.

Only about a month late this time, here is the latest UTPureRC6B patch for ASU.

2003-02-02
Hot off the press, here is the UTPureRC6A patch for ASU.  This version should now allow Linux and Mac clients to connect without all the manual install nonsense.

Crazy holidays; everything is out-of-date now.  Okay, honestly, I have been absorbed by a lot of things, including converting ASU to work with UT2003 and some comprehensive UT2003 installation instructions -- not yet available but getting there.  What I do have is the latest version of the UTPureRC59 patch for ASU.  But be warned:  This version does not allow Linux or Mac clients to connect unless they install the UTPureRC59 package manually and empty their cache directory.

Crazy long weekend; everything is out-of-date now.  Ah, well, here are the latest IpDrv-436-20020820 and UTPureRC53 patches for ASU.

2002-08-06
Over the weekend, Epic tentatively released a network driver patch but then recalled it for more testing.  This patch is supposed to stop a DoS security problem with the original network driver that has recently been exploited with some regularity.  It is also rumored to fix the Web Admin problems with Kernel 2.4 servers but this has not yet been confirmed.  This patch is still experimental and it is not currently being distributed by Epic but if you need this patch, it is now available in ASU Patch format under the name IpDrv-436-20020803.

Okay, again, I was about a week late on this one -- they are coming so fast! -- when it rains, it pours; here is yet another UTPure update:  UTPureRC51 is now available in ASU Patch format.  For the details on RC51, check out this thread

2002-07-24
Okay, I was about a week late getting RC5x.  Fact is, nobody had told me that they had another update.  To top it off, just as I was writing this, I see an update; seems they have RC5z already!  Bah.  Well, anyway, here are the both of them!  Both UTPureRC5z and UTPureRC5x are now available in ASU Patch format.  For the details on RC5z, check out this thread

A day late but here it is:  UTPureRC5w is now available in ASU Patch format.  For the details on this particular version, check out this thread

The FTP server is alive again.  Thank you all for your patience.  I am sorry if I did not reply to any of the emails that were sent to me during the time that it was down but I was a little swamped.  You never know how many people use your product until there is a problem with it.  Thanks to k0adh for installing the server and to proftpd and debian for being so cool, no thanks to wu-ftpd and redhat for being lame.

2002-06-17
Okay, somebody felt that it was absolutely necessary to hack the FTP server (mental note: no more wu-ftpd servers) so the files are temporarily unavailable.  I am working on upgrading to another FTP server but I do not have a whole lot of time and it is distracting me from the work that I actually get paid for, so this could be a while.  I hope to have it running again by Monday but no promises.  "We apologize for the inconvenience."

ASU 0.6.  Any questions?

2002-05-10
The Init Script Installer has been patched again!  New features of asu-init-installer-0.5.3 include rotating log files, a provision to catch runaway processes, and many other smaller fixes.  It is also generally more flexible for those of you that will be wanting to tweak your ucc.init scripts.

2002-05-09
UTPureRC5v is now available in ASU Patch format.  For the details on this particular version, check out this thread on the CSHP Forums.

After close to three years of helping people install Unreal Tournament on their Linux boxes to enjoy a superior gaming system, the abfackeln ut-linux installer package has been officially deprecated in favour of abfackelns Server Utilities (ASU).  The installer packages themselves are now no longer required or supported and there are now instructions to install the client and the server on the ASU pages.

2002-04-09
UTPureRC5p is now available in ASU Patch format.  For the details on this particular version, check out this thread on the CSHP Forums.

2002-03-21
There is a new Init Script Installer Patch for creating your ucc.init files.  There were some problems with the ucc.init files that were generated with ASU 0.5 and this should fix most of those problems.  Another patch for this is expected in the near future, as well as a patch for the umod installer.


ASU is currently in its beta-testing phase, and is being offered free without warrantee (as always).  If you have any problems, comments or suggestions please visit the abfackeln.com Unreal Tournament for Linux support page at http://ut.abfackeln.com/support.html
