Problems running FrostWire on Ubuntu 8.04 with 64bit JVM?

If you recently upgraded your Ubuntu to 8.04 (64bit version), the Sun JVM that comes with it may be giving you an error similar to this one:


Loading FrostWire:
#
# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
#
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fa25489d755, pid=8123, tid=1082538320
#
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (10.0-b22 mixed mode linux-amd64)
# Problematic frame:
# C [libc.so.6+0x30755] catgets+0x15
#

Users from our FrostWire Forum came up with a solution:

I have a solution for those of us running 64 bit systems:

Code:

sudo apt-get install ia32-sun-java6-bin

Code:

sudo update-alternatives –config java

Then choose the ia32 version of Java 6.

Thanks a lot guys.

    ************************************************** ****************
    Something went wrong with FrostWire.
    Maybe you’re using the wrong version of Java?
    (FrostWire is tested against and works best with with Sun’s JRE, Java 1.4+)
    The version of Java in your PATH is:
    java version “1.6.0_06”
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_06-b02)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0-b22, mixed mode)

    i installed java usind the restricted extras in terminal and i also installed another java from synaptics (its like java jre6 or something)

    i also tried this in terminal

    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

  2. Hey…thank’s a lot, that work for me…

    that’s the great part of the open source, people working together…

    farewell!

  3. command own:
    florian@secureserv:~$ sudo apt-get install ia32-sun-java6-bin
    Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig
    Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut
    Reading state information… Fertig
    Paket ia32-sun-java6-bin ist nicht verfügbar, wird aber von einem anderen
    Paket referenziert. Das kann heißen, dass das Paket fehlt, dass es veraltet
    ist oder nur aus einer anderen Quelle verfügbar ist.
    Doch die folgenden Pakete ersetzen es:
    sun-java6-jre
    E: Paket ia32-sun-java6-bin hat keinen Installationskandidaten
    florian@secureserv:~$

    command two:
    florian@secureserv:~$ sudo update-alternatives –config java
    [sudo] password for florian:
    update-alternatives: unbekanntes Argument »–config«
    florian@secureserv:~$

    ohh very good!
