    Could always make a thread on Tinycore's forum and link it here. A whole new community will be able to help/be annoyed by MineOS users.

    Does this new version prevent running out of inodes from regular backups?


    Yes, if you assign a separate partition for backups (ramdisk or not), MineOS will use ReisierFS instead of EXT4, completely removing the limitation on inode count
    Wow, that's a killer filesystem.

    So, I got MineOS installed, you forgot to mention cp'ing grub into boot, but I figured it out fast enough!

    I was looking over the web-interface files, when I remembered that MineOS only has vi installed.
    So I typed 'ab', searched for nano, found it, and told ab to install it. Then, it starts telling me about how it can't access "distro.ibiblio.org"; so I figured it was a user permissions problem, but 'ab' won't run using 'sudo'. Any suggetions?

    What permissions do /mnt/sda1/tce/, /mnt/sda1/tce/onboot.lst and /mnt/sda1/tce/optional/ have. chmod them to 775 and try ab. Your "sda1" may vary.

    Everyone seems to be in love with the hey0 admin mod. Perhaps give that a look?

    So I have a request, and if it's too much to ask then I'll try and get it myself and then post it for others. I am not a Linux user, and not well versed in the commands and function of the shell interface. I would like a bit of documentation on what all the different commands do and how to navigate through it so I can easily work with this OS. I don't know if there is already this kind of documentation for tiny core linux and I just need to find it but, if there was a sheet of all the relevant commands to say, show server status(like you show in the last picture in the original post) or even navigate the different files so I don't have to delete worlds using the FTP. I feel like I'm groping in the dark and learning to swim at the same time.

    Don't get me wrong I live for this stuff, but I thought you might have what I needed already, I doubt that you memorized every command for this distro. If you did you're a real frood, my hats off to ya. But if not maybe some development notes that could help me compile a list of useful commands for navigating and running this amazing OS you have.

    Tinycore isn't the easiest Linux distro to learn on. However you can try typing a letter on the commandline then pressing tab twice to see what commands start with that letter. You can also add --help after the command name and hit Enter to sometimes get help for the command, for safety I suggest doing that with only certain commands(cd, ls, cp, mv). If you want to scroll the VM window hold shift and press page up/down. But yeah, I'd learn on Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Arch in order of ease of use.

    A suggestion, make an admin.sh argument for creating a well compressed archive of a world for downloading via the httpd. I've come up with some instructions on how to make very small world file archives. You don't have to use 7-zip for the gzipping, you could use gzip -9, it will make comperable(but likely slightly larger) .dat files and DeflOpt is optional(especially if you're concerned about the licensing).

    Theres already this option from within the web-interface called 'archive', under each world tab.
    And if you want to execute it from the admin.sh file, its

    ./admin.sh archive one
    #replace one with world number

    this creates a full archive of your world, which is tar'red and gzipped, and can also be used with the 'import' button

    Certainly, however I was suggesting something that decreases the size of the tar.gz file by 15-20%. Your focus on a small sized distro got me thinking that it'd be the best usage of the method in the instructions I linked. It would indeed work best with the "archive" command, seeing rdiff-backup would be confused by the recompressed .dat files.

    Hey BlackSash, this script is indeed out of date. However, what made you take an interest in this script?

    Before you zip(rar/7z/whatever) up your World directory take, the time to recompress the individual .dat files, seeing they're actually just .gz files, to make your final zipped file as small as possible. You may want to back up your World folder before doing this if you're not confident in your command line skills.

    Change the 1 in World1 to the number of the world you want to perform this on.
    Lines depending on your setup and term of choice:

    bash(Linux) will need the following in your path:
    7-zip(probably from your package manager)
    Ben Jos Walbeehm's DeflOpt(optional, remove " -exec DeflOpt -a -b {} \;" from the line below if you'd rather not use it). The Linux version I found here with the download link being in the initial post. DeflOpt is located in optimipng/pngtools/unix/ after extracting.

    cd ~/.minecraft/saves
    find World1 -name *.dat -exec sh -c "7z e -so -tgzip {} > ./temp.dat.gunzip" \; -exec sh -c "7z a dummy -tgzip -mx9 -mfb=128 -mpass=10 -so ./temp.dat.gunzip > {}" \; -exec DeflOpt -a -b {} \;
    rm ./temp.dat.gunzip


    cmd.exe(Windows) will need the following in your path:
    7-zip install directory
    gnuwin32's FindUtils package bin\ directory
    Ben Jos Walbeehm's DeflOpt(optional, remove " -exec deflopt /a /b {} ;" from the line below if you'd rather not use it) download

    cd %appdata%\minecraft\saves
    find World1 -name *.dat -exec cmd /C "7z e -so -tgzip {} > .\temp.dat.gunzip" ; -exec cmd /C "7z a dummy -tgzip -mx9 -mfb=128 -mpass=10 -so .\temp.dat.gunzip > {}" ; -exec deflopt /a /b {} ;
    del .\temp.dat.gunzip


    Then zip up the directory with whatever compression program you use(I'm partial to 7-zip).

    Why do we have so mucbh ****ing asshole trolls here?
    Are all the griefers now attacking our forums?

    and we're out of beta...
    My line is much more entertaining, this thread is pretty much spam anyways. If this thread wasn't so /b/ you'd have no trolls.

    gdude2002, does it work with Java alone? Looks like a Java issue, on my Virtualbox'd Ubuntu 8.04 I installed Java from sun's site.

    What purpose does a delay before an interval serve to you?
