    I am wondering if it is possible to run bukkit in the back ground on linux without it sputing all the data into the console window I'm using. I tried these commands but to no avail (I cannot join my server).

    Here are the commands:
    nohup ./run.sh
    sh run.sh &

    you can use screen
    that will let you reconnect to it later as well.

    simply enter screen at a terminal prompt
    then start the server as you normally would (with command spurting goodness)
    then you can close the terminal window

    to rejoin the session, open a terminal window and type screen -dr

    or more simple:

    screen ./run.sh
    You have to replace 'run.sh' with your server starter script.

    then you can use ctrl+a+d to detach from the server, then you can use the terminal for some other purpose. If you want the server output to appear again use:

    screen -r
