Teamspeak 3 Server on Raspberry Pi

Sun Jun 05, 2016 11:03 pm

Below I post step-by-step instruction How to run Teamspeak 3 Server on Raspberry Pi with ExaGear Desktop https://eltechs.com/product/exagear-des ... nd-prices/. Please note that ExaGear isn't free. But I hope it will help someone.
  1. Install ExaGear Desktop, which allow to run x86 software on Raspberry (note that ExaGear isn't free and you have to obtain the license)

    Code: Select all

    tar -xvzpf exagear-desktop-rpi2.tar.gz
    sudo ./install-exagear.sh
  2. Run ExaGear

    Code: Select all

    exagear
    Now you entered in x86 world.
  3. Don't run Teamspeak 3 Server under root, create special user

    Code: Select all

    sudo adduser teamspeak
    sudo passwd teamspeak
  4. Create installation directory and make teamspeak user the owner of this directory:

    Code: Select all

    sudo mkdir /usr/local/teamspeak
    sudo chown teamspeak /usr/local/teamspeak
  5. Login as teamspeak user, download ts3 server and unpack archive:

    Code: Select all

    su teamspeak
    cd /usr/local/teamspeak
    wget http://dl.4players.de/ts/releases/3.0.11.4/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86-3.0.11.4.tar.gz
    tar -xzvf teamspeak3-server_linux-x86-3.0.11.4.tar.gz
    rm teamspeak3-server_linux-x86-3.0.11.4.tar.gz
  6. Start ts3 server

    Code: Select all

     /usr/local/teamspeak/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86/ts3server_minimal_runscript.sh
    Image
    Your Teamspeak 3 server is running. You should copy credentials which will be required for connecting with teamspeak 3 client.
  7. Press CTRL+C and then start the Server in the background

    Code: Select all

    /usr/local/teamspeak/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86/ts3server_startscript.sh start

Cool. But how many users can a Pi3 handle?

32 users (limits for free ts3 server) is definitely works great. It Generate less than 50% CPU workload. So, approximating 70 users should work ok.

is it worth to run a teamspeak server with ~20 slots compared to renting one?
cause a teamspeak server with ~slots costs ~12€ a year.
So the question is how many kwh is a pi consuming in a year
when there is only a teamspeak server...

I've both run my own and rented for gaming with friends. It depends on usage. To get the cheapest rent price you need to pay for a year, but if you only end up using it for 2-3 months before everyone gets bored and moves on to a new game, then running your own is cheaper.

In the last year Discord has been my preferred gaming voip program. The free dedicated server infrastructure works well and there is a client for nearly any platform even a experimental x86 linux client. My main concern is they don't have profit model in place yet, so they might suddenly start charging for certain features or dropping in ad banners.
