Linux BF2 Dedicated Server Needs

I just downloaded "", which is the Battlefield 2 Linux Dedicated Server 1.5. After installing it on my Ubuntu computer, I ran it and got the following error message:

/home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Under /usr/lib, I found So I guess my Ubuntu system has a newer library than the one needed by the dedicated server.

I created a link from to, but that didn't work either. The dedicated server showed the following error messages in this case:

/home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2: /usr/lib/ version `CXXABI_1.2' not found (required by /home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2)
/home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCPP_3.2.2' not found (required by /home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2)
/home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCPP_3.2' not found (required by /home/FidoMushu/programs/bf2/bin/ia-32/bf2)

I'm now looking for alternative solutions.

Well, looks like it wasn't very hard to get installed on Ubuntu. From this "Battlefield 2 - Dedicated Server" thread, I found that I can simply install using this command:

sudo apt-get install libstdc++5

After installing libstdc++5, I had no problem running "".

The only question left . . . how well will this dedicated server run on my Linux laptop?

Too bad that libstdc++5 does not exist anymore in Ubuntu 10.04

Ugh. I'm on 10.04. I finally found the file here:

I downloaded it and the installer did the rest.
