Ok, so I just installed Gentoo 64bit and tried to to step one but this is what is showed:

Code: Select all

mkdir: cannot create directory '~/Minecraft' : No such file or directory
What does this mean
It basically means it was unable to make a directory at the said location.

Re: Pi keeps falling over and I don't know why

good idea, I just had a thought, could this issue be caused by aggressive 'dynamic' channel switching on my Virgin router? That is somewhat possible but that would also mean that your other devices would be disconnecting as well. I know on the superhub 3 it comes with the same name for both frequen...

The 3 just keeps losing it's network connection. I might try moving it to be wired.
Check your router, my router from time to time disables the 2.4Ghz band for no reason. Make sure the 2.4Ghz band has a different name to the 5Ghz band

Technical Update:

Website was down for 4 days without my knowledge, I got it back up and running. Had a kernel panic on every boot. Didn't want to waste time so I just reflashed Raspbian.

Unfortunately, this method is broken since buster has been released. I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet.

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.2 + Optifine + Forge On a Raspberry Pi 2B, 3B, 3B+ (Untested on Pi 4B)

Thank you for the information jdonald. I have taken a look at rpiMikes setupMC1.sh script and it will be easily editable to add forge. If all goes to planned (have to add swap and possibly zram) then I will go ahead and update the forge version all together. Personally I think it would look cool if ...

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.2 on Pi3 or Pi4

I actually don't know if I have the swap file enabled. I had tried optifine by itself and it worked. Forge runs out of memory on 3/5 each time. As this was done on a fresh buster install the difference here was that on my old setup (stretch) I had novaspirit zram script. I will try again when I get ...

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.2 on Pi3 or Pi4

Hrum.... I am running into problems when trying to run forge. The application opens but comes up with many broken pipes. Also, the dmesg log says "out of memory" and kills the java process. Why do I have problems on buster? I have updated my forge run script to accommodate the new java version.

Forums Youtube user control panel not working

Hello. It seems that the format for adding a youtube channel to your contact information is outdated on the forums. The old format (the one the forums currently uses) was youtube.com/user/namehere. The new format is youtube.com/c/namehere. Is this already known?

rpiMike, this tutorial is for Raspbian buster, does the Pi 4 have any additional steps needed for Minecraft to run? Or does it use the same configuration as any other Pi?

This older tutorial won't work by itself now that Raspbian no longer includes JDK 8 preinstalled. The new thread supersedes this one. rpiMike's updated script there takes care of downloading and unpacking Java. Many users have run that on a Pi 4. Hmm... Too bad I don't have a pi 4 :cry: Let me see ...

great.
what about, like on a standard pc, launch Firefox or Chromium, visit a website, select a video and stream it full screan (via HDMI) on a monitor?
Won't work well.. I would rather use a Pi as a smart tv/kodi device and watch local videos or youtube.
