I've just upgraded (and a happy donator too!) from Gloria to Helena. My query is regarding the differences between the implementation of Java in Helena compared to Gloria. I have a 32-bit bioinformatics (DNA analysis) software package that runs beautifully on Gloria but fails in Helena - the 64-bit version of the package generates errors in Helena x64. Other bits of info: The package installs a folder which contains JRE1.5.0_07 and presumably calls the subroutines from within that folder. I would be most grateful if any of you gurus could help me out here.
Also - if anyone can explain the differences between sh and bash as when I change the execution scripts to bash (from sh), the software works! Yes, I'm a newbie at Linux (and command line), and yes, the bioinformatics package scripts appear to be poorly written or very inflexible. The package was supposedly written for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (which sucks) and its derivatives (e.g., CentOS).
Thanks in advance and Cheers!!!
