    Perhaps you can provide some more information? A link to the tutorial you tried to follow would be nice. If you don't have .profile file, you can make one. Open Terminal en put in the following line.

    Code:
    nano .profile
    Put your stuff in the .profile file and save with ctrl0 --> indicated in nano at the bottom with ^O WriteOut then ^X to Exit.

    First of all I don't use or have minecraft. Secondly the explanation in the video isn't exactly rocket science now is it? You need this : http://http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/static/soylatte/bsd-dist/openjdk7_darwin/openjdk7-macppc-2009-12-16-b4.tar.bz2

    Double click the openjdk7-macppc-2009-12-16-b4.tar.bz2 file and rename the folder it creates to openjdk7-macppc. Open the Terminal app. You can find it in the Applications-->Utilities folder and type in the line nano .profile followed by enter. Put in .profile file the line that starts with export :

    Code:
    # change the line to the right location for you eg where you unpacked the #openjdk7-macppc-2009-12-16-b4.tar.bz2 file
    export PATH=/Users/test/Downloads/openjdk7-macppc/bin:$PATH
    On your desktop make folder with name minecraft_server and put in the folder the minecraft_server.jar file and the start.command file I will provide as attachement. To start the server go to the minecraft_server folder in Finder and double click the start.command file. To test I started it but got bored after a few minutes as I have a Leopard ppc machine with only 512Mb of ram. Good luck.

    once I've done all of that, clicked start.command, it comes up with a terminal window and says after it attempting to load it: Bad CPU Excutable

    Bad CPU Executable means you're using the wrong java for your architecture or trying to run 64bit on 32bit cpu. It's either PPC or Intel. Post a screenshot of the output of echo $PATH in Terminal and a screenshot of About This Mac.

    Sorry, can't help you with that. Might be Java 7 related. Try Google.
