Running CraftBukkit on a Raspberry Pi Model B @RaspberryPi #piday #raspberrypi

Stacey Campbell has documented her experience running CrafBukkit on RPi for anyone looking to do the same:

My young son has been running a CraftBukkit server on our power–hungry and noisy Windows 7 PC for about a year. He sometimes has up to 4 or so of his friends on the whitelisted server. With the availability of a $35 Raspberry Pi Model B, I got interested in the idea of moving the CraftBukkit server onto the much smaller RPi platform and turning off the PC.

CraftBukkit, based on Minecraft, is a floating point intensive java application, so for adequate performance hardware floating point support on an otherwise low–horsepower platform is a strong requirement.

Here’s the hardware I assembled:

  • Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2
  • Transcend 16GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card
  • SB Raspberry Pi case (clear)
  • Motorola USB mobile phone charger with micro-USB cable
  • Belkin powered USB hub
  • 1TB Western Digital Elements external USB hard drive
