EDIT: I managed to solve it by reinstalling MineOS Turnkey and before attempting the steps in this guide, I headed to /usr/bin and manually deleted the jar symlink (I believe it was).
If anyone else has the same problem, here is what I did:
Did a full reinstall of MineOS Turnkey from my USB stick
Using FileZilla, I connected to the MineOS computer from my personal computer as root and headed to /usr/bin and removed the jar symlink manually. (If I tried accessing /usr/bin/jar, an error message stating it doesn’t exist appears. I downloaded the file before deleting it to see that it actually was a file of something.)
In the terminal/console/whatever you call it I did the following (typing it in manually): apt remove java-common wget https://download.java.net/java/GA/jdk16.0.1/7147401fd7354114ac51ef3e1328291f/9/GPL/openjdk-16.0.1_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz tar -xf openjdk-16.0.1_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz -C /opt/ ln -s /opt/jdk-16.0.1/bin/java /usr/bin/java
I tried starting a fresh minecraft server with the Minecraft version 1.17-rc1 and it worked perfectly.
End of edit.
General information about my skill level and OS
First of all, I am a noob. I’m not that experienced with Linux. I understand it somewhat, but there’s only the console and I’m used to Windows. I would love to learn how Linux works, but now I’m in a rush for the 1.17 release.
I use the MineOS Turnkey (Downloaded the ISO with Rufus and use it as the only OS).
I can’t start any of the Minecraftversions 1.17-preX or 1.17-rc1. Only versions before 1.17 works. So I searched for a solution and found this article, but something’s not working for me.
I did these steps:
TrueNAS user here, as well.
If anyone else has TrueNAS/FreeNAS and can come up with a modified set of instructions, it would be greatly appreciated! Likewise, if I happen to find a modified set of instructions for TrueNAS/FreeNAS, I will be sure to post here.
I’m really sorry about this 38–that is 100% a flub on the keyboard–definitely does not need to be there, in the least. That said, it still appears that the file was downloaded without issue.
You state that the next command tar doesn’t work–what was the error?
The ln -s will not work for two reasons:
the tar step didn’t work
you put /user/bin/java–be sure to be checking the path: /usr/bin/java
The slight typo means it’s trying to put the symlink in /user/bin/, but bash was unwilling to make two new directories (/user and /user/bin`) to do it. It’s a safeguard, so what’s good is there’s nothing it did you need to undo.
The tar issue is the real concern. Let me know what the error you get there is.
I’m not sure what the error is, when I run the command nothing happens. There isn’t an error but unlike every other command, it also doesn’t have anything to say that the command worked.
I just ran the tar and In command again, this time the In didnt have an error but just like the tar command nothing showed up to confirm it worked. I tried to run a 1.17 server, it didnt work but the 1.16.5 server still does.
Note: I’m just changing the profile of the server from 1.16.5 to 1.17, I haven’t tried to make a new complete new server.
Okay so… after 3 hours and some help from my aunt who has a computer science degree, the 1.17 server works.
When nothing showed up to confirm that those commands worked, I think they still did work. And the only other problem that I can think of now that I had to fix was redownloading the 1.17 profile.
I had already downloaded it before I updated to Java 16, I dont know how that made the server incapable of running but when I downloaded it a second time it seemed to work. @hexparrot thank you for your time and thank you for helping me with my problem. I appreciate all the work you do.
