Linux Quake server NOT for X

Hey all...

I want a quake server for linux..  However I'd like to do it without installing X-Windows..  Just a nice simple dedicated quake server for Linux 2.0.x

If this is possible :)

Thanx all

As far as I can tell, you don't need to be running X to run a dedicated Quake Server.  From my experiments :-) when you begin a Quake server, it runs in text mode anyhow, since you're not actually playing the game, just providing the server services for others.  Try something like: 'xquake -dedicated 16 -nosound' as your command line argument to start it up.  Note, you'll need to be using the reg'd version of the Quake PAK files otherwise it won't work :-(  After you've run the command, you should see a whole screen full of stuff zip up before your eyes and then bang - Quake server is ready...
