Install instructions:

On your linux box:
-Create a directory for the game. example:
mkdir /usr/local/games/ja
-Copy the linux binary into this directory
-Mark the file as executable. example:
chmod a+x /usr/local/games/ja/linuxjampded
-Create the 'base' directory. example:
mkdir /usr/local/games/ja/base
Note, YES, it is case sensitive and the program will look for all lower case
-Copy the files from the base directory of the retail CD into the
base directory you just created. In particular, the assets0.pk3, assets1.pk3 and assets2.pk3
Yes, you need all of them...
-Copy the libcxa.so.1 to your lib directory if it doesn't already have it. Example:
cp libcxa.so.1 /usr/lib

Running the dedicated server:

-"cd" into the game directory (cd /usr/local/games/ja)
-Run the binary. An example is:
./linuxjampded +exec server.cfg

This example assumes you have created a configuration file called server.cfg and placed
it into the "base" directory. An example server.cfg file is included with this
distribution. You should modify it first before using it.

By default, the server will run in "internet" play mode and advertise its presense to
the master server. If you wish to have a LAN play only server, change your server
config to set dedicated 1, or change the command line to be:
./linuxjampded +set dedicated 1 +exec server.cfg

-The game will look in the base directory or home directory of the user running the
program (~/.ja/)
-If you set the logfile option to 1, the files will be stored in your user
home directory in ~/.ja/base/
-Running the linuxjampded binary under FreeBSD use
brandelf -t Linux /usr/local/games/ja/linuxjampded
-If you are running the server behind a NAT box, any client machine also behind
that NAT box will not be able to see the server listed in the "internet" list.
Switch to the local lan setting instead.
