MineOS is great. It’s easy to use and not cluttered, which really appeals to me.
Unfortunately I can’t seem to get it working. I can install it, I can log into it, and usually the profiles list populates with the appropriate information. The problem starts when I create a server and try to start it up.
I don’t really know how to explain the problem I am having, so I made a short (about 3 minute) video that shows what’s going on. I can create servers all day long, but I cannot get them to start up. Occasionally I will get one to start up, but then I will not be able to shut it down. I hope you can view the short video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIzte1_TWTs
YouTube seems to have decided to keep that video stuck forever in processing…so you may not be able to see it
In case you can’t see it, I will try to explain what is going on. The process usually is that i create a server, selecting the port/gamemode/etc as necessary. I then go to the dashboard and click the server name to bring up the status page. I can click “Accept EULA” which brings up a popup with a button to read the EULA and one to start the server. I can’t start the server, as it will complain about no jar file having been selected. So I’ll close out of that window (it updates the eula.txt file properly but gives no confirmation that it did). From there I will select a profile (any version I have set up), and then move to the jar file drop-down to select the jar. It might be in the list, it might not. If it is in the list, when I attempt to select it, it simply vanishes from the list, and certain information on the screen (server owner/group, space used, etc) switches to “undefined”. If I try to start the server it complains that no jar file was selected.
The really odd part, is I can leave the webUI sitting on the server status page and move on to other things, and come back to it some time later and it will work just fine for that one single server. But the trouble repeats all over again when attempting to create any other servers.
I have a non-root user called minecraft in a group called minecraft, set up to use the WebUI and all of the permissions and ownership on the folders involved are owned by that user/group and set with read/write/execute permissions as needed.
I have installed MineOS on Debian 9 (the latest version) on a spare computer I have here at my house, and it has the problem.
I have installed MineOS on Debian 8 on my production server, and it has the problem.
I have installed MineOS on Debian 9 on my production server, and it has the problem.
I am guessing I am missing something. I’ve followed the install instructions explicitly as outlined on this site for Debian and I have done so using both OpenJDK 7, and OpenJDK 8, as well as Node.js 4.0 and 8.0 (the latest) and the problem continues. I have tried it in Firefox and Opera as well, and the problem still continues.
Now I’d hate to find out it’s something really stupid on my end and I would not be the least bit surprised if I screwed up something myself, but as of now I am completely stumped.
