[NEED HELP] Cannot launch xonotic-linux64-dedicated server (v0.8.5) in Ubuntu18.04

#1
Hi folks, 
I hope to run xonotic-linux64-dedicated server (v0.8.5) in Ubuntu 18.04
I downloaded the latest version of Xonotic release (v0.8.5) from https://github.com/garymoon/xonotic/rele...-0.8.5.zip
and I cannot run it in Ubuntu 18.04.


Following is the output error message when I execute ./xonotic-linux64-dedicated
Code:
~/Xonotic$ ./xonotic-linux64-dedicated

./xonotic-linux64-dedicated: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.29' not found (required by ./xonotic-linux64-dedicated)
./xonotic-linux64-dedicated: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.28' not found (required by ./xonotic-linux64-dedicated)

Code:
$ ldd --version
ldd (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.27-3ubuntu1.6) 2.27

[Note]
- I can run v0.8.2 dedicated server in Ubuntu 18.04
- I can run v0.8.5 dedicated server in Ubuntu 20.04
- I didn't try to build (compile) Xonotic from the source code

If you don't want to update Ubuntu nor compile from source, you could try the Flatpak or Snap version.

Thank you @oblector
It seems the official xonotic package would not support Ubuntu 18.04. 
Let me test and use other options like you suggested ! Smile

Yes, you need the newer GLIBC for 0.8.5. Had to upgrade myself for this specific reason.
On the other hand, it just works in Winblows, if you dare Smile

Even though the thread is 2 years old, the solutions for running the Xonotic server on Ubuntu 18.04 remain relevant. You can still consider upgrading your Ubuntu version to 20.04 or newer, using a compatibility layer like patchelf to modify the binary, or compiling from source to resolve the GLIBC version compatibility issue.For dedicated server hosting options, this website offers reliable and secure hosting solutions tailored to your needs. Their dedicated servers provide high performance and can be a great choice for hosting your gaming servers or other applications.
