    Use redstone torches to make your corners. It's funky but workable.

    posted a message on Is MineOS a good program to run server?
    Nobody ever learned anything by not trying.

    MineOS is easy to set up in a VM. It has a good tutorial that nearly anyone can follow. The developer spends tons of his time providing support. The worst that could possibly happen is that you manage to lose your world. Why not try it?

    If hexparrot is offering to help you out, you should take it. MineOS is very awesome (the best server solution available, IMO), and I'm sure he can help you get up and running very quickly.

    I'm sorry that donations haven't been better, hexparrot. I'll send another, soon. Thanks for all your work and support!

    I recommend Getting a Linksys WRT-54GL and flashing Tomato firmware on it.


    I'll check it out. I only have one wireless-N capable device out of 5, so I'm only considering it for future-proofing. Thanks.

    My budget is roughly $100-$150 USD, but I'm pretty flexible on this. Wireless G is a minimum requirement, although Wireless N is preferred. I'd like something with advanced features but that also performs basic tasks, like port forwarding, with a minimum of hassle.

    It appears Jensens routers are not available in the U.S.

    I'm looking for specific model recommendations that users have experience with. If you use a specific model and successfully host a minecraft server, please let me know.

    posted a message on Recommended router for hosting minecraft?
    I host a minecraft server for myself and a few friends. I'm currently using an older Belkin wireless G router, and everything works fine. I have other issues with the router not related to minecraft, and I'd like to replace it.

    I recently purchased a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH with DD-WRT, and port forwarding did not work. Buffalo support was slow and unhelpful, and I have no desire to repeat the experience with another new router.

    Can anyone recommend a good router for hosting minecraft?

    Thanks in advance.

    He included SCP in the new release, which is very similar to FTP but superior. Check out WinSCP, if you're connecting from a windows machine.

    please make it so that instead of having us program please make it ask you to either click "cancel" or "accept"/"install" and then it does all the stuff you were showing in the vid

    so no this is not simple yet :sad.gif:


    It's very simple, for linux. The amount of work that's already done for you is enormous.

    No programming is required. The word you're looking for is configuring.

    It's probably unrealistic to expect it to be any easier. If you're unfamiliar with virtualization and installing operating systems, it's going to seem much more difficult than it actually is.

    Ok so i tried it again a few more times and it still seems to not be working so i was wondering how would I go about manually uploading the server file? Your help is greatly appreciated.


    Connect over ssh or ftp to the server.

    If you connect over ssh, you'll need to 'cd /usr/games/minecraft' and find the minecraft.jar. My server is a ram-disk server, so mine is in /usr/games/minecraft/ram-worlds.

    If you connect over ftp, it'll be in your ftp root directory.

    Delete minecraft.jar (make sure to stop the server first!). Over ssh, you'd type 'rm minecraft.jar'.

    FTP will vary by client. Usually, you right-click the file and left-click delete.

    From the servers web interface, click 'update server file', or upload the new file over ftp into the ftp root directory. When it's done, start the server.

    I like the idea of being able to share a world without risk to the server. It's an idea with legs.

    assuming you're booting from MineOS on the thumb drive...

    sudo grub
    
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    
    root (hd?,?)
    
    setup ([your root drive])
    
    quit


    That worked for me when I was migrating my MineOS install to a larger drive.

    Yeah, happens to me, too. I'm going to try deleting the jar through ssh and then updating.

    Edit: That seems to take care of it.

    In the rdiff backup tutorial theres a way to see all the listed successful backups.

    Additionally, on the rdiff-backup website: http://www.nongnu.org/rdiff-backup/examples.html, there are sample commands to remove the oldest backups "older than x timeframe" and "later than x backups ago"


    Yeah, the problem is that rdiff-backup can't do anything when the disk is full, so I was in the dark until I made space available. The backups had begun failing sometime Sunday afternoon, so ~6 hours was lost. Really not that bad. I guess I picked a good time to screw up the server.

    I'm looking forward to checking out the next release.
