can't say I would be any help, but a friend has dual monitors and IRC goes in and disables monitor #2 somehow thru display properties/graphic card settings (nvidia) - mind you it is a dual head graphics card. Suppose it all depends on what your card offers in the area of graphic settings... Just OTH...

I have no idea why it happens to me - but no matter what version of linux I use, that port 53 issue seems to always get me. Maybe I am installing named, bind or a DNS server (all the same right?) by mistake and actually do not need it, thus all that stuff in my logs. Thanks for taking the time to ch...

found the "problem" - on this standby server I am using (usual server's cpu fan died) I had an firewall add-on script running which somehow determined that dragon.org's ip was used in some sort of "attack" against our home network. Not too sure if that even happened - am not accu...

I cannot even connect to bzflag.dragon.org
pinging the same returns no results, and whois doesn't either (because of the .org I believe)

is bind (named) a possible problem here? If so is there a way to "flush" the cache? Or am I not even close? LOL

Re: problems hosting 1.9.3 server

Btw., you can use +f GM{5} syntax for multipel flags of the same type. Depending on your shell, you'l have to put that into quotes. Thanks SGI & Chestal, have made those changes, just waiting on 1.9.4 to make sure it works. No errors are being reported, just can't play on the server...then agai...

About the respawn time: Were you playing on different servers? In the new version the respawn time is a parameter that can be changed by the server admin. The default value is 5 seconds, and I think that I set it to 1 second on glasstowers.homelinux.net:20000 when I was playing with the settings. T...

Windows compared to Linux "bug"?

Ok, this morning I was finally able to install 1.9.3 into MD Linux (thanks again larsl) and found something different between the Windows build and Linux RPM. After your tank gets blown up - your visual "leftovers" - the time it takes from after being blown up to being able to respawn - is...

1.9.3 sounds with 1.7g2

well, tried doing a make install, did not succeed (didn't think it would) and now I have the newer sounds...gm lock sounds like a cow...and phantom zone sounds like a scary ghost or something! LOL

Cool, can't wait for the rpm's

(gotta be the operator of this computer is the problem!)

larsl, Fiber and Pat, Thanks for the help tonight... I re-tried larsl suggestion and ran ./configure and then make and things went better than the first time. First time running make, it just "looped" and kept doing the same thing over and over. About 20 or so lines (I know, lame response)...

tanks for the clue!

I have never had good luck (first, second maybe third time) with cvs. Fiber helped me out a revision or two ago with this. Seems I must not be installing something which is needed. Still trying though!

As usual, this new (yes I know, not an actual release) version of Bz doesn't install... The error msg's I am getting this time around don't appear to have anything to do with that ...
