Hosting on Linux

Hosting on Linux

This page is currently work-in-progress.
Linux users can launch the server executable using a Docker image or by using Wine. If you do not have a DirectX 11 capable GPU in your system (for example if you are using a hosting service), you will want to host a Headless server.

Headless Servers

Using Docker

pg9182/northstar_dedicated : Docker image with server management tools and better performance
Check the README page for instructions on the appropriate repository to set up your server.

Without using Docker

Hosting on a headless Linux server without Docker on Linux is not recommended, as you'll be forced to build packages yourself.
You can find instructions for running a dedicated server using Wine on pg9182's repository.
This comment on GitHub also contains some information for hosting a dedicated server on Linux.
