Unable to get JAR list on FreeBSD 10.4


Fresh install by the book.
Full internet access for all applications and associated user accounts.

For some odd reason the Profile page reads “No profiles are available; check internet connectivity and refresh the profile list.”

I know I have connectivity.

I tried resetting the scripts and it did not help.

Any Suggestions?

  • Update *
    Upon further hitting it with a hammer, I realized I would completely be happy if I could just manually install a single profile just to get it running. I typically run modded 1.7.10 Forge with forge directly installed in the JAR. I used to run an old old old version of MineOS that way.



I have the same issue

I installed the node.js webui on an already running archlinux. So since I can update and download the git repo my physical server has internet connectivity. I can connect to the webui without any trouble.

When I navigate to profiles in the webui it shows the ominous error message: “No profiles are available; check internet connectivity and refresh the profile list.

I didn’t install the server all the way by the book, the webui files are located in /mnt/raid/gameserver/minecraft instead of /var/games/minecraf. but /usr/games does not exist.



What does the mineos.log show?

Usually it’s in /var/log/mineos.log

Initial guess is this is the issue. Keep in mind that your files don’t need to live in this path, but MineOS would be happy so long as you have these destinations as symlinks.


I started my mineos.service once without the symlink and once with it, but the results seem to be the same.

the dirrctory /usr/games still does not exist.


Webui files are supposed to be in /usr/games/minecraft. This directory will never get create by MineOS, because it’s supposed to be created for the installation of MineOS.

Server files and profiles are supposed to be in /var/games/minecraft. If this path doesn’t exist, you can and should create it. That said,not installing it “by the book” and it not working by not being able to find the profiles seems like they are directly correlated.

I would consider it “by the book” if you were to use all the normal paths, but let the actual files live elsewhere by using symlinks. Just having the symlinks exist (but not be actually used) isn’t of any value.


Put the webui files anywhere you want
ls /usr/games/minecraft should show those files, even if the only reason that command works is because /usr/games/minecraft is a symlink.

Let the server files/profiles go anywhere you want
ls /var/games/minecraft should show the archive, profiles, backup, etc. directories, even if the only reason is /var/games/minecraft is a symlink.


Of course, instead of using symlinks, you can also just update the mineos.conf and init file for your adjusted paths.

MineOS is not in any way hard-coding these directories in the code itself–this stuff is located in /etc/mineos.conf, which can be made to point anywhere (regarding where the latter is saved).

And the startup scripts (presuming you used supervisor_conf.bsd), you can change the path for the webui scripts. Did you adjust these for your nonstandard paths?


The webui files do not belong in /var. /var is for variable-sized files (sizes change over time during use), which the webui does not. Server files are variable files, so they belong in var. It seems you made a mistake translating the two paths (webui path and file path) into two also separate paths.


Thank you kindly for the help and timely replies. I guess I mixed /var/games and /usr/games up.

So I deleted all my mineos files, stopped running services and started over. Now there seems to be a problem with the npm install command. might be a different issue, but if I ignore it the result is the same (this time I went all the way “by the book” no fancy custom paths.

Posix npm module seems to have issues on BSD because of the default compiler (which I believe is CLANG). On FreeBSD, you can force c++ to be used with this command from the github repo page README.

echo "CXX=c++ npm install" | sh

It says ‘for this command “npm install” instead use the c++ compiler’. I believe posix should build successfully after this. You may also want to clear out the previous stuff built with rm -rf node_modules which contains modules built with the CLANG BEFORE rebuilding.
