The management script to control this minecraft flavor was moved to a dedicated repository at GitHub:Edenhofer/minecraft-server. The script works for various flavors of minecraft. It is very minimalist yet versatile and feature-rich. For more information on how to configure and install the script separately, visit the above linked repository.

If you got error:

spigot[2940]: The corresponding screen session for spigot was already dead.

check screen log file. Mine reported error:

Unsupported Java detected (61.0). Only up to Java 15 is supported.

Looks like Java 16 is now mainlined :)

I was able to build newest (1.17) spigot with this PKGBUILD patch:

beware, you need java runtime >= 16, I installed amazon-corretto-16 from AUR in this case.

Just as a heads-up, I will wait until java-runtime-headless>=16 hits the stable Arch repositories before publishing the next release of spigot to the AUR. Please be patient until then.

You'll see this message if you attempt to stop a server that is already dead. At first glance this does not seem like an error.

Can you elaborate a little on what you are trying to do and which part of it does not work? Have you tried stopping and then restarting the service again on the command line via the spigot script?

Bujiraso commented on 2020-11-21 13:49 (UTC)

I started the server once and it ended abnormally and now all the systemd service does is this:

spigot[2940]: The corresponding screen session for spigot was already dead. 
systemd[1]: spigot.service: Succeeded.

Is there a way to fix it? Is this a bug?

@heycrip haha no worries. You're welcome! Be sure to read/skim the wiki first next time though. And, once again, don't edit files in /usr/bin :D

heycrip commented on 2020-11-17 10:37 (UTC)

God I'm dumb :'). Need more coffee. Sorry about that and thanks.

edh commented on 2020-11-17 08:38 (UTC)

@heycrip What? Why would you change the /usr/bin/spigot script? There is a dedicated setting for this in /etc/conf.d/spigot . This is also documented in the ArchWiki.

P.S. please don't edit files in /usr/bin. That is generally a bad idea.
