    Problem: There is no screen to be detached.


    I'm pretty new to Linux and I'm struggeling with a problem lately.
    When I boot up, I got a script ( running to start my minecraft server.

    cd /minecraft/bukkit
    screen -S minecraft java -Xms1G -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
    I start this script after boot is finished through adding the following code to /etc/rc.local.

    cd  /minecraft/bukkit
    exit 0
    Problem is that I'm unable to get my screen back through my SSH connection.
    When I run the command
    sudo screen -r
    I get an error :

    There is a screen on:
            1196.minecraft  (04/02/13 13:23:43)     (Attached)
    There is no screen to be resumed.

    What am I doing wrong?
