After a few attempts I was able to install a Minecraft server on one of my Raspberry Pi. I don’t want to sugarcoat it but it wasn’t too difficult thanks to this shell script from kraftyhosting.eu. Thanks KM_James!
The initial minecraft tests were decent and I was able to have others log in from remote locations using a static IP address with port-forwarding. It’s not entirely secure yet but that will be the next step along with installing some plugins into the craftbukkit installation.
Next project, getting Processing running on the Raspberry Pi. Any takers?
