I think that it will help someone.

1. Install Git:
sudo apt-get install git
2. Install dependencies:
sudo apt-get install libsigc++-2.0-dev libxml2-dev liblua5.1-0-dev libphysfs-dev libsqlite3-dev zlib1g-dev
3. Install cmake:
sudo apt-get install cmake
4. Install build-essential:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
5. Install SQLite3:
sudo apt-get install sqlite3
6. Copy sourcecode from Git:
git clone git:// manaserv
7. Compile manaserv:
cmake .
make install
8. Setup database:
sqlite3 mana.db < ${ManaServ-dir}/src/sql/sqlite/createTables.sql
9. Configure the configuration file (manaserv.xml):
sudo nano {manaserv.xml-dir}manaserv.xml
10. Сreate and start script for run manaserv:
sudo touch RunServer
sudo nano RunServer
Code: Select all#!/bin/bash

sudo chmod +x RunServer
bash RunServer

You can find further infos there:

But your script is not going to work. It will start the accountserver, wait until it shuts down some when and then starts the gameserver.
Either just starts both servers by hand, use a script wich starts them in screen or start then with & behind the executable to execute them in the background.

You also run the server as root. You should not do this. It is perfectly fine to run it as any local user.

I hope, that's all :)

Yeah. The depedencies listed there are for the mana client. I will try to make it more clear this evening. Thanks for pointing out.

EDIT: Well if you talk about this forum thread there is nothing i can do of course :) I talk about

well, yes, i'm speaking of exactly this, too. On it says:

Code: Select allsudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev libguichan-dev libphysfs-dev libpng12-dev libpthread-stubs0-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libxml2-dev zlib1g-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev

The 3 dependencies mentioned are missing here :)


Another question. I'm trying to set up a nlocal server. I downloaded and compiled. So far so good. Starting the account server gives nothing unusual. But starting the game server repeatedly spits out an error message in log file:

Code: Select all[ERR] Could not find callback for update function!

It is impossible to connect to the server.

The client log shows some interesting entries. The first remarkable part is this:
Code: Select all[06:21:56.49] Initializing SDL...

Which data directory is expected? Where do i get it from?

Here we have the first communication problem. Everything is on tha same machine, and netstat -uan says (among others):

Code: Select allProto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State     
udp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0  *                         

So the servers are listening on the standard ports.

The remainder in hthe log file is just about outputting the error message. So what could be the reason? It obviously has something to do with something called "update function". And that may be related to something called client data. So how to solve this?

Regards and thanks,

The missing update function most likely means that loading the default script library failed. Manaserv is unable to find this library if you do not install manaserv or you do not run the executable within the manaserv directory.

So either run make install (it will install the script library to /usr/local/share/manaserv/scripts/ by default) or run the manaserv executable in the repository root directory of manaserv (you can use --config <path> to set the path to your manaserv.xml). Manaserv is first looking for the scripts/lua/ directory in the current working directory and then in <prefix>/share/manaserv/.

However this does not explain why you cannot connect with your client.

The log snippet that you posted includes some manaplus paths. Are you trying to use manaplus? The manaserv git only works with the latest mana git (or daily build).

O.k., make install solved the problem with the not found hook. But still it is impossible to connect to the server. I tried both mana and manaplus. The server log reports the connect, and that was all. I'll try to get some more logs.

O.k., here is the account server log

As can be seen there is some communication between client and server. But still the client says "could not connect to server" and aborts.

Is it possible to get a log file from mana client, too? The help does not say so.

The client you see connecting is most likely your gameserver.

You need to use the latest master of the mana client for manaserv. And you need to make sure that the server type is manaserv. Check this by connecting to (it is in the serverlist as "Source of Tales"). Manaplus will not work.

The client log is in ~/.local/share/mana/mana.log.

Testing server works. Connecting to my local server does still not work. I had a typo in the configuration, corrected it, but still no connect. Here is the mana.log snippet:

Code: Select all[12:26:00.57] State: CONNECT SERVER
[12:26:00.57] Network::Connecting to
[12:26:00.57] Window::Window("")
[12:26:00.57] Error in SDLNet_TCP_Open(): Couldn't connect to remote host
[12:26:00.57] Network error: Couldn't connect to remote host

netstat -uan gives:
Code: Select alludp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0*                         
udp        0      0  *                         

So the server is listening.

The servers are listening on udp only. Does SDLNet_TCP_Open use udp protocol? May this be related to some "update" function, downloading client data? What should be configured for a local installation?

P.S. i checked the account server log and found this older entry:
Code: Select all[10:45:32] [INF] A new client connected from to port 9602

This was the client. I know this because here we still have the typo in the port number. Interestingly i did the same typo in the configuration as well as in the client configuration :) So it seems the client at least _tried_ to connect.

Don't worry about time :) This is a project i've scheduled for december this year. I do not have much time currently, so projects like these have to have lowest priority.

But this weekend i can post my configuration.

O.k. then, here ist the configuration. I deleted the comments to not flood the forum with unnecessary text, and of course changed the pw :)
