    PUNKBUSTER INSTALLATION & UPDATE WITH RUN-FILE



    • Setting permissions


      After downloading the executable (pbsetup.run) firstonce you must assign write and executable permissions.
      It is enough for octal 0744 (-rwxr--r--).


      Quote

      :~> chmod 744 pbsetup.run


      Now check the permissions with list. Input (green) and output matrix (light gray).


      Quote

      :~> l
      -rwxr--r-- 1 youruser yourgroup 2539230 2009-01-18 11:00 pbsetup.run*
      :~> _



    • General extension


      After setting the right permissions, the pbsetup.run must be expanded.


      Quote

      :~> ./pbsetup.run -e


      Output after the extension with command (green), input (green) and output matrix (light gray).




    • Specific installation


      To install the PunkBuster now must specify the actual path to the game with a game-pb-folder.
      The pb-folder is created automatically by specifying the path.


      List of abbreviations (source: pbsetup.exe/.run/.run.app) of the games (green):



      The xxx should be replaced with the game abbreviations (green). The same applies to the game path.
      The syntax is therefore as follows:


      Quote

      :~> ./pbsetup.run --add-game=xxx --add-game-path=/xxx/xxx/


      Example of an output matrix (light gray) for an installation of "Call of Duty" - PunkBuster with command (green) and input (green).


      Quote

      :~> ./pbsetup.run --add-game=cod --add-game-path=/home/gameservers/cod1server/

      :~> _



    • Updating the files


      After the specific installation of PunkBuster should be carried out to update the files.
