Thread: Problem with Azureus after Java updates

  1. Problem with Azureus after Java updates


    Hello; after the last two updates of java-1_5_0 (including the one that
    fixes the bug in java plugin) Azureus has stopped working; when I run it
    from Konsole, the error message is "cannot find java virtual machine,
    aborting"; I have updated Azureus to the last version from Packman
    (3.0.3.5-B04), but the problem is still there.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Why not go back to last working java that you installed. Sometimes
    upgrade is downgrade.

    Because the first is a security upate and the second fixes a bug in the
    first one (java plugin not present in Mozilla Firefox)

    do a "which java|xargs ls -l" and it's probably a symbolic link to an
    executable that no longer exists because of the upgrade, you're gonna have
    to determine the correct one to link to try "rpm -ql java-1_5_0-sun
    grep /bin/java"

    Make sure that java is in the path.

    e.g.

    which java
    /usr/lib/java/bin/java

    Thank you; java was not in the path; I have fixed it transiently by running

    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0_update13/jre/bin

    but I don't know how to edit /etc/profile to make the change permanent.

    One way would be to modify /etc/alternatives - You'll see several links
    there.

    The way I do it is to add at the very bottom of /etc/profile...

    PATH="/usr/lib/java/bin:$PATH"
    export PATH

    It's convenient to make /usr/lib/java a link to the version of java you
    are using. For example

    /usr/lib/java -> /usr/lib/jre_1.5.07

    This way you can upgrade your jre and all you have to do edit the
    link /usr/lib/java
