    Hmm, if you have linux that is done automatically.

    You don't really sound like much of a "kickasshost" if you are asking these kinds of questions...

    Linux Half-Life dedicated servers are restarted automatically by hlds_run, the script that starts them.

    vi hlds_run

    At the most basic level, you can just use a shell script resembling

    while [ true ]
    do
    ./hlds...
    done

    Most of the larger GSPs use interactive daemons like Iguana or Guardian to manage restarts, command line changes, and mod switching.

    Iguana only runs on Windows but yeah same principle..

    For linux a simple 'While true do....' script would work fine.
