Hi,

I totally agree that the https://wiki.archlinux.org/ is a valuable site for information. And yes a newbie would have a lot of trouble maintaining and using Arch. But the wiki could help someone through most issues. Plus the Arch forum is very helpful but be aware that you had better form a good query with proper title topic or you will be hit hard.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

I just spent the last hour or so reading this thread from start to finish... Worth it!

I felt like I was reading a novella based on a group of old friends exploring new and exciting things. I realize this thread is now marked as solved, but I couldn't resist commenting and thanking everyone. THIS is what I think of when I think of GNU/Linux, especially coming from Windows.

Community, camaraderie, exploration, knowledge, learning, the unknown.

I really cannot express how much I enjoyed reading this thread. I'll be looking for threads involving all of you fine folks for sure!

And sooooooo many links! All of which would have likely significantly expedited my adoption of GNU/Linux. I need to bookmark all of them.

Again, just would like to sincerely thank all of you that posted in this thread.

Talking

Relevant and timely? The relevance is a question about linux, for newbee me :-) And the time is 13:54 or 1:54 pm.

I have got a lot of time to get to know the linux system. I even bought a dedicated pc for it. I had an old one, but when i wanted to update, i see that only 64 bit is supported. So i bought a new pc with 64 bit capability.

My question, for today at this time, about linux is, and i know i can search the intergooglenet, i have a minecraft server setup for the kids... and i did this under a non sudo non password user. I can start and stop the server with a sudo user, i use systemd. Now here come the question, when i want to try screen it tells me there is no "minecraft server" screen, but i can see it running with systemctl status minecraft. I try screen with the non sudo user, also with the sudo user, but same answer. Or do i understand completely different? Is it even possible to show a service inside a screen? I get the feeling im not fully understanding, haha, how this should work. Also i just want to get into the commandline of the server to set some options, but so far no luck.
When i start it as java bla bla xmx.... and xms.... server.jar etc. then the cmd line comes up, but i just want to do it with systemd starting and stopping it. Does anyone know a way of doing this? And i hope you understand what i mean.

And sorry in advance if the post is already 6 months old. Im pro reviving old things :-)

Thanks in advance.

Ok just forget it, i know now, i did not understand the working mechanism of screen. I do know, so question answered.
Sorry for taking up space.
