Java Crash Issues - RESOLVED

Postby red-e-made » Mon Jun 22, 2009 8:54 pm

Hello there

After installing Mint 7, I've been having some Java issues. Namely, for reasons unknown to me, running Java-based websites in my browser will sometimes cause the screen to freeze up, and then begin to break apart in a mosaic pattern. Restarting my machine is the only option.

I am using java version 1.6.0_13, Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03), Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode) with Firefox 3.0.11.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The only difference with my machine is that I have Client VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode, sharing)
I have no problems at all - not that I visit that many sites with java
I think the version is OK but possibly Firefox is not
Empty the Firefox cache and see if it makes any difference

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Same problem here with java, a good test was addthis.com and it always crashes, every time. :-(

I'm pretty sure it hates me. :\

Any ideas?

http://addthis.com/
No problems - but I also have NoScript so I allow the domains one by one - don't know if that makes any difference

I tested that link. It appears to function normally for my system (Mint 7 x64 stock install as per signature). The only Firefox add-on I have is AdBlock Plus. I just wanted to share in case it might help narrow down the problem.

I ran from the terminal and this is all I got.

mmcrae@mmcrae-desktop ~ $ firefox
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
Illegal instruction
mmcrae@mmcrae-desktop ~ $

Any ideas on how I can get more info? It just says illegal instruction when I visit a such such as addthis.com

Tried uninstalling firefox (and related firefox stuff) and reinstalling. That was also a no go, though I do have a question.

How many people having this crash issue are running dual displays?

seems to be fixed by unchecking xinerama under nvidia-settings and verifying the configuration. I will post any changes, but so far so good. :-)

Almost forgot to update my post again, it still happens randomly. However I am still using the nvidia dual screen stuff. I have another system at home with no problems at all on a single screen setup, fresh install also. So I am definitely thinking something to due with nvidia dual screen.

Just wanted to keep you all updated: I managed to fix this bug by uninstalling everything java-related in Synaptic, restarting, re-installing Java, and restarting again. Haven't had an issue since. Thanks for your input, everyone.
