If you are running ET under obama username for example, then your etkey file should be saved under /home/obama/.etwolf/etmain/ folder.

 

Once that is done, start your ET then and type from the console this command /cl_guid to know if ET had recognized your etkey file. Once that is done, try joining FA server, then from the console, issue /pb_cl_enable and /pb_writecfg . Restart ET once again and see.

Hoping that you are running ET as your username and not as root. can you check if the etkey file is also owned by your username and not by root ? I believe that ET is not able to access or find your etkey file. Most likely you are running ET as root or your etkey file is either saved under from the wrong folder or saved to the correct folder with wrong user permission. Can you please check?

what is your username when running ET? This question is important so we could know where to put etkey file.

Then you must put the etkey file into

 

/home/kim/etwolf/etmain/

 

folder. Make sure kim user owned that file

 

chown kim:kim /home/kim/etwolf/etmain/etkey

 

Then run et and type

 

/cl_guid

 

If it doesnt work, open etkey file and make sure there's only one line inside. Do no paste them here. :P

The folder for your etkey should be:

/home/your-user-name-here/.etwolf/etmain/

 

note the . before etwolf, it's a hidden folder, if you don't use the console you have to show hidden files, in order to see it.

 

And also, you need punkbuster correctly installed and (maybe) updated, if I rename my etkey to something else as a test, I get 'unknown' and not NO_GUID, are you sure your pb is installed correctly?
