Linux:

Q: "my linux et server is taking 90% cpu even when empty, why?"
A: You have TLS installed, et doesnt like it. Do export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 before calling etded to fix it.

Q: "my server keeps dying with the message 'ERROR: Info_SetValueForKey: oversize infostring'"
A: Remove all the "sets" commands from your configs.

Q: "I keep getting 'R_AddEntitySurfaces: Bad reType'"
A: Nvidia control panel -> OpenGl Menu -> Vertical Sync -> Always Disabled

Q: "(some stats/logparser program) doesn't work with etpro!"
A: b_logrealtimestamps 0, b_brokenlogtimestamps 1 will make etpro log in the old broken etmain log format that some log analysers expect.

Often when I press ctrl+alt at the same time (Topshots+My own stats) ET crashes.. really annoying when you do it by mistake.

I posted this in Server Admin but I gifured I would post it here too, so hopefully I can get it worked out.

Hey guys I have been having problems as I stated before but I seem to have found the error code that may help me fix this problem. Here is what I get from the server window when the server crashes...

Z_Malloc failed on allocation of 32832 bits from the main zone.

Can anyone help me with this so I can stop the server from crashing.

another problem is the tank breaking on goldrush if you damage it at that certain spot at the start of spawn and then it can't be repaired and hte map has to be restarted.

This is also true for pressing Numpad 0 + Numpad 1

I've been trying out ET on a debian box recently, and it's been great so far, but I have one small question:

I've noticed that my control key behaves in ET the same way it does on a tty or VT102-emulating Xterm. For example, if I hit CTRL+3 (I use CTRL for crouch and 3 for weaponbank 3) in game, it sends an ESC. Should I reconfigure my controls or is there a workaround this?

There's not really a way around it...

You can change the behavior of XLookupString, but you run the risk of breaking other applications which expect things to work the way they do now if you just edit xlib and recompile it...

I appreciate the explanation, I'll move everything to alpha and number key only (ESDF++).

I think i had somthing like this happen to me the other day..But it may have been somthing else. It was stuck on the scoreboard and topshots, I could still look around and shoot, but my keyboard was completly inactive, but still plugged in, as a capslock light was on. Probably somthing else though..
