    I started setting up my Bukkit Server today, and whenever I try to press start.command, this message comes up:

    Last login: Sun Oct 5 23:22:39 on ttys000
    Andrews-MacBook-Air:~ Andrew$ /Users/Andrew/Desktop/Bukkit/start.command ; exit;
    readlink: illegal option -- f
    usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
    Unable to access jarfile craftbukkit.jar
    logout


    [Process completed]
    I've run servers on the same computer before, and this is the first time I've had a problem.

    Hey there saturn20714 :)

    Please post your full startup script.

    Hoolean here's what's in my start.command file, if that's what your asking for
    #!/bin/sh
    BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
    cd "$BINDIR"
    java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

    That's odd. Are you sure it's exactly the same as the other scripts you use to start your server? Try using this script instead:

    Code:bash
    1. #!/bin/bash
    2. cd "$(dirname "$0")"
    3. exec java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

    @Hoolean I haven't run a server in a while, so I can't remember what it was like before. Also, I tried the script you said and unfortunately that didn't work, but a different message came up:

    Andrews-MacBook-Air:~ Andrew$ /Users/Andrew/Desktop/Bukkit/start.command ; exit;
    Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from
    craftbukkit.jar
    logout

    [Process completed]

    That looks a wee bit like a problem with the actual craftbukkit.jar; it may be corrupted or invalid. :(

    What can I do about that? Should I download a different version?

    You can't. CraftBukkit is takes down

    AronTheGamer what does that mean?

    ZanderMan9 thanks a lot, I'm not planning on running 1.8 until there's a stable version. We'll see if this one works... :)

    No problem, man!
    Hopefully there will be a stable version, if the current situation gets resolved. You can read up on from several sources, but some of them might be biased. Maybe you already know, idk :p

    I dare anyone. I dare anyone.
    Everyone else may be too much of a wuss to file a counter-DMCA, but I will fight that battle. Because I strongly believe Wolfe has no legal grounds, as his contributions were to a project whose license stated that all contributions are public property or something of the nature.
    So if someone wants to have a go, be my guest.
