   Installation instructions:

1. Following programs must have been installed on your Linux-box:
 tar, gcc. Optional: md5sum (for setup integrity check)

1a. On some verions of Linux (this was reported for RedHat 9
 and Gentoo linux 2.4.20) the NSCD deamon must be installed to
 run ArmA 2 server successfully. Caching of DNS would be sufficient.

2. Copy the whole "ArmA 2" directory from Windows
 to some Linux-directory (ArmA2). DON'T DO ANY DATA CONVERSIONS
 (even "dos2unix" translation of text files is not necessary).
 Example: you can use PKZIP (WinZip, PowerArchiver, etc.) on
 Windows and "unzip" on Linux.
    Don't use upper case letters in the ArmA2 directory name
 (/home/bob/arma2 will be good, /home/bob/ArmA
 may cause some troubles).
    ArmA2 directory should contain subdirectories "Addons", "Bin",
  "Campaigns", etc.

3. Copy the "server-x.xx.tar.gz" (x.xx is version number) file into
 the ArmA2 directory. Unpack and install it with commands:

 arma2$ tar -xjf server-x.xx.tar.bz2
 arma2$ ./install

 Watch the messages - they will inform you whether your installation
 is successful.

4. Dedicated server can be started in foreground:

 arma2$ ./server

 Or in background:

 o$ nohup ./server > out.txt 2> err.txt &
 [1] <pid>

5. Running server can be stopped by executing:

 $ kill -s SIGINT <pid>

 Where <pid> is process-id of mother server thread (printed out in
 "nohup" command).

6. ArmA2 server has a feature: command-line parameter
 "-pid=<pid_file>". It causes creation of <pid_file> with
 PID of root ArmA2 process. If IP port specified in "-port=<nn>"
 parameter is busy (in usage), ArmA2 will terminate immediately
 and <pid_file> won't be written..

7. The "arma2server" script is provided for automatic server
 start/restart/status query/etc. Please be sure to edit
 After this is done, install (hard-link?) the script into
 "/etc/rc.d/init.d/arma2server" file. After that it can be managed
 by "chkconfig" (see info/man).
