Just thought i would let you know about a cool OS you can get for free. It just works. Download the Live disc and boot up on any old pc you have. It installs the base Linux system and a cool front end to make it super easy via HTML to startup and edit your server at any time. You still have access to command line, ssh and ftp. I have been running a craft bukkit server at version 1.6.4 of minecraft for a few months now with no problems.
#Login to the raspberry from the console. (Ok i guess you could do all the installing from ssh, but you will want to be at the console for the final command)
#Start up the gui session
#Open a web browser to http://pi.minecraft.net and copy the link to the download file.
#Open terminal window
- sudo wget <paste>
#unzip that thing
- sudo tar -zxvf mine<tab will auto-fill the file name you downloaded>
#Look for the new folder name
- ls -l
#Go into the new folder
- cd mcpi
#Start the game
Go play some free minecraft!
