Hi there !
Thanks for participating in the testing of CraftBian 2 ! It is appreciated, and it helps me so much in further development of it.
You should already have received a link to where you can grab CraftBian 2 ALPHA.
It should be in the form of an invite to a google drive store, which contains two zipped files for either Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3.
You need to download one of the zip files corresponding to the Raspberry Pi you wish to test it on, extract the zip and flash the image onto an SD card for use with said Raspberry Pi.
If you have any problems with this link, please let me know.
To flash the image onto a SD card, you can use Win32 Disk Imager from here:
A 4 GB or larger is required as of this version.
Once you have the card ready and plugged into your pi, the only thing you should need is a network cable and power. You might need to attach a screen at first, to see the Pi’s ip address, however i did this via my routers webinterface. When you got the Pi’s IP address, simply type it into your browser and you should be presented with a login page where you in the top right corner will have an option to register an account, which you can use to login afterwards.
The automated server creation from CraftBian 1 is not yet implemented in this version. This means you will have to create one yourself. I recommend using a Spigot server due to its better performance over a normal Minecraft server. However you are free to use a normal Minecraft Server.
Otherwise, the interface looks almost identical to CraftBian 1 for now. This might change later.
And then some notes about this being in early version
Since this is a beta you will experience bugs. Which is the reason why i haven’t let it out to everyone yet 🙂
I want to eliminate the most obvious problems before i release it.
I also hope to hear back from you, what your initial impressions are, and if you find bugs, or things which can be done better, let me know either via directly messaging me on CraftBians Facebook page or via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Have fun testing, and again, thanks for helping me out!
