    Hello,
    on “my” Linux server I'm getting following error with the builds 733, 740, 766 (none others tested):
    Code:

    Same is happening to me. Not sure if it's a Bukkit related problem, or RAM related problem...

    Use top from command line, post the first 5 lines.

    And the second (failed) “java -version” command was executed while the server is running.

    664536k free means ~664 MB of RAM available to you. You're trying to start the server with 1GB, but you only have 664MB free. Try to find what's eating up all of your RAM (you have 2GB) and then try to start the server.

    Ehr the server is already running ;)

    Code:
    top - 16:04:14 up 302 days, 15:16,  3 users,  load average: 0.12, 0.21, 0.15

    Without the server running.

    Try allocating more RAM - 1024 just doesn't seem to be enough with some of the plugins these days. Since you're x86, you're limited to 1536M, but try that.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    screen -S minecraft java -Xincgc -Xmx1536M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui
    Try with -Xincgc as well, should decrease your RAM usage, and hopefully let you run it again.

    Hmmm, it doesn't remove the error, and doesn't decrease the RAM usage:
    Code:
    top - 16:36:08 up 302 days, 15:48,  2 users,  load average: 0.35, 0.17, 0.12

    Mem:   2097152k total,  1929028k used,   168124k free,        0k buffers
    Swap:        0k total,        0k used,        0k free,        0k cached

    Here are things I would try:

    1. Remove all plugins - confirm it works. If it doesn't - go to step 3.
    2. If it works without plugins, put half back in - keep narrowing down until you find the plugin. Hint: Its likely one of the "big" plugins.
    3. Can you run x64 Java? Might be the only way to get around that.

    What do you mean with “works”? The error message at the beginning disappear? Nope, all plugins deactivated, and get still the same error message, and the ram usage is nearly high as before (only some MB difference).

    To your third point: Impossible, as it is a x86 Linux? (i686)

    Well, if you get stuck on #1 (yes, I mean you don't get that error), then you must go back to the Java you're using. Try either updating to 1.6.0_24/25 or going to 1.7.x. Not sure if it will help, but its worth a try.

    Okay and I get stuck ;) I have no permission to apt so I have wait until the server admin responds.

    But thanks for the help. Hopefully this will be solved soon :) Love the colors/features of the “sh” emulation.

    You can also try turning off jline for now, see if that helps.

    Okay after the server was updated today (both OS and CB) it is working now. \o/
