Dedicated Server Error

Being quite excited about Left 4 Dead, I created a simple mod that made terrorists in Counter-Strike: Source act like zombies with knifes (see TrackBack below). I had, since then, ran it on my dual core machine. But later, I wanted to try something new.

Recently, I had set-up my brand new MSi Wind netbook as a Windows server. Since it's already running 24/7, I wanted to see how well its Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor will handle the task of running a Counter-Strike: Source dedicated server. So I installed Valve's Steam on the notebook server and started up the Source Dedicated Server. But Murphy's Law presided. Instead of loading up the server, I got the following error message (also shown in the screen shot below) from Steam:

Dedicated Server Error

MountFilesystem( 241 ) failed: SteamMountFilesystem(2752,241,0x182ffd64=,0x182ffc54) failed with error 5: no Steam Content Servers are available

I had no clue what this meant. I tried to start a Half-Life2: Deathmatch using the same Source Dedicated Server. It worked just fine. I noticed that Steam had to download the Half-Life 2 engine. I decided to log out of my dedicated server Steam account, log in my player account, and install Counter-Strike: Source that way. After installing Counter-Strike: Source, I logged back into the dedicated server account, launched the Source Dedicated Server and found that Counter-Strike: Source server now works.

Title: Left 4 Dead: Zombies with Knifes
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: After my co-worker told me about the Left 4 Dead game that is on November 18, 2008, I've been quite excited about it. You basically play by yourself, or as one of four characters online, trying to survive from the zombie on-slaughter. But the 18th is still two weeks away.

Title: Thoughts on Lenovo S10 Netbook?
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: Yeah. My baby dumped juice over the keyboard. After I washed it and cleaned it up, the keyboard no longer works. That means the WiFi and Bluetooth also no longer works. I decided to replace my Windows server with it, since that's what I've been thinking about ever since I measure the laptop to run a . . .
