Hi,

ok, it seems you are using an older java. On the SL 6.2 box I'm using

java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.49.1.11.4.el6_3.x86_64

So, please install this package. Eg
Code:
yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.49.1.11.4.el6_3.x86_64
Then check that /etc/alternatives/java links to the new version. Ie if you run the following command you should get the same output
Code:
% ls -l /etc/alternatives/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Sep  6 04:08 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64/bin/java
Once you've done this try running the minecraft server again.
Evo2.

Hi,

in [code] blocks in my post, if there is a "%" on the line it indicates that this is a command that I ran (or want you to run) at the prompt.
If there is no "%" this means that the text is the output I got. So the command that I want you to run is actually "ls -l /etc/alternatives/java".
This is just to confirm that when you run "java" you will actually be running the newly installed version.

I also wonder if this is also the reason you got no output when running "readlink -f $(which java)".

Hi,

you entered the "%" in the command again. Just enter "ls -l /etc/alternatives/java".

Sorry didn't notice

Code:
[root@metroville ~]# ls -l /etc/alternatives/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Sep  5 20:56 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64/bin/java

Hi,

I thought the port forwarding question was based around a misunderstanding of the error messages produced when using an older (incompatible) version of java.

So, could you restate the question?

Hi,

why do you think it needs to be opened? Are you unable to connect to your minecraft server?

Are you running some sort of firewall?

Well I can't even start the server, this is what happens

Code:
m
[minecraft@metroville ~]$ java -Xms384M -Xmx384M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui
[minecraft@metroville ~]$ cd Metroville
[minecraft@metroville Metroville]$ java -Xms384M -Xmx384M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui
[minecraft@metroville Metroville]$ java -Xms384M -Xmx384M -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui

Hi,

can you please go back to the standard minecraft server? As I think I explained earlier it is *much* easier to troubleshoot things when there are fewer unknowns.
