    Well, thanks for all that. But that doesn't help me move forward. I'm still stuck with the same error I had before I installed JRE.

    It doesn't look like you've downloaded Java, or at least you haven't placed it in the /tmp directory.

    Assume that I don't know the commands to do these things.

    How do I place it in the /tmp directory? Is JRE the same as Java or JDK-default?

    I know I've installed JRE-default.

    java -version
    in your command prompt.

    I got it setup. I gave a friend of mine access to the server and it took him literally 5 minutes to activate it and open up a world. And then 10 minutes transferring my pre-prepared world into the server for us to use.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'd say the tut is far from perfect, but your help was appreciated. I picked up some rudimentary Linux lingo for starters.

    I'll be happy to fill in the gaps if you want to point them out.

    Remove the -d64, put nothing in its place.

    Awesome tutorial, thanks. :D

    I've been running a server for a few months on both windows xp and Mac OSX with minimal problems, but I'm tired of having it on my mac, and want to set it up on a Ubuntu server. I managed to install the OS on an old pc, get it running, and follow most of your directions.

    BUT: I can't seem to install java correctly, or something. Every time I try to do anything with java, be it -version or starting the, it displays this:
    UnZipSFX 5.50 of 17 February 2002, by Info-ZIP ([email protected]).
    replace jre1.6.0_24/bin/java? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename:
    If I select all, it'll run, do its thing, and then say it's done, but if I try to -version or run the then it just pops up with the same message. I've both run it and not run it when it pops up, and several times each, but it never changes. Help?

    EDIT: I'm running Ubuntu Server x64 10.10, by the way. I'm a total noob at this, so please be patient with me. :p

    NEVERMIND. I fixed it. :D

    Not really sure what I was doing, but i pretty much shutdown the ubuntu server to revert to the root command line (does that make sense?) and then sorta followed the instructions on #5 of this page, but changed add-apt-repository to apt-add-repository, and ran it like that. Sorta.

    I apoligize to anyone who tries to follow those directions.

    [diamond] BUT. IT WORKS. [diamond]

    Thank you, TnT, for this guide. It's been immensely helpful. +1!

    Okay, so riddle me this:

    If I want to ssh into the server via a mac terminal window, so that it gives me command line access to the server, etc., how can I get this ssh feed when logged in after the Minecraft server's started to show the Minecraft server feed? When I ssh in right now when a minecraft server's running, it just gives me the standard jpdiv@servername command entry, when instead I want it to show the Minecraft server feed, with player chat, command entry, etc.

    Is this possible? Am I dreaming?

    (Also, server's running Ubuntu server 10.10, java x64, nightly Bukkit, etc.)

    how do i tell it to use more ram?
  19. Offline


    You should be able to use the screen command on Mac OSX as well -

    Where it says -Xmx<value>G, change that value to the amount of RAM, in GB, that you want to allocate.
    For example:
    java - Xincgc -Xmx2G -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui will allocate 2 GB RAM. If I had 3G it would be 3 GB RAM.

    Are you sure you are using x64 Java? Can you paste the output of the java -version command?
  22. Offline


    yes im shure very shure

    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.9.7) (6b20-1.9.7-0ubuntu1~10.04.1)

    Then you may run into problems - I've seen a lot of issues recently with OpenJDK. Those problems are likely the ones you are experiencing. Care to paste you full server.log output? itself recommends using Sun Oracle Java.

    Sure, I can help. What are you getting stuck on? Do you get the server started? Have you got stuck on installing Ubuntu? What's going on?

    I'll help if I can. I don't know where to start giving advice though until I know more of what problems you're running into.
