    Ok, so I am using Ubuntu Desktop for my server OS, and I have bukkit servers on it (one is mine the other is my sisters). I know to have them on different ports, which I do and both are forwarded and work, but for some reason I cannot run the 2 servers at the same time. I have one up, but when I start another the terminal disappears after a moment of being up, and the server never comes up. It doesn't mater the order of the servers being brought up (I can start with hers or mine, but nada).

    Any help would be nice.

    I'm guessing the Java VM cannot allocate enough memory. How much memory do you have and how much are you giving them?

    oh.... well that might be the problem. I only have 3/4 gig of RAM (ya, I need more, I know)

    Try assigning one gig to every server. See if it starts then.

    What startup string are you using for the servers... (it's not "might" be the problem... this IS the problem)

    He doesn't have a gig. he has 3/4 of a gig... 728 MB.

    Here is the code in the SH file, I assume that is what you mean by startup string.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
    cd "$BINDIR"
    java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
    
    If I have to adjust the amount of RAM one gets, I would like to give priority to one (mine) and the bare minimum for 1-2 players for the other (her's)

    Oh. And then two servers? That's going to be hard :confused:
    If you want, you can try assigning 256 MB to each then.

    Ok, given that you said you only have 768mb of ram, you can't allocate 1024 to ONE process, let alone 2.
