I tried to start SQuirrel on Linux
Java 1.3.1, but all I get is a Crash even
before opening any splash screen or window.
Any plans to make Squirrel run with Linux?

A number of people have Squirrel working under Linux, albeit
with some minor issues. Can you give me some details on the

that this end up in the right place :-)
The problem with squirrel was this there was no additional
information to give - it just crashed with a segmentation
fault (would a core dump of the java vm help?)
I used jdk 1.3.1 from sun, Linux 2.4.12-ac5 (system based on
SuSE 7.1) - i also tried with more ram (-Xms) with the same
Yes, could you please attach the VM core dump. It may give me a clue to what is going on. We had a
similar problem with JDK1.4 in 1.0final and 1.0final1 with the splash screen jpeg causing a dump but if you're
running 1.0final2 you should have the correct jpeg. I'm thinking about putting in a -nosplash command line
option and if your problem turns out to be the splash screen I'll definitely do it!
I checked once again, there seems to be a 2x2 pixel frame to
show up, but I've made a core file ready anyway. If you send
me your eMail, I'll reply with the URL of the core (2.7m

Same here: linux + Sun JDK 1.3.1
squirrel 1.0f2 crashes the JRE with a segmentation fault
Im my case the splash screen is opened and the
progression bar get approximately half way
(up the point where it says something like "loading JDBC,
aliases...") - then the segmentation fault.
What information could I provide you to help
fixing this one?
I've been taking a look through the JavaSoft bug parade and
newsgroups. There seems to be a number of problems with Sun
JDK1.3.1 some of which crash the VM.
One suggestion they have is passing the -classic flag to the
java executable. Another suggestion is running the IBM JDK
Holger, could you please send the URL of the core dump to
colbell at users dot sourceforge dot net
When I get a spare 15 minutes (hopefully tonight) I'll put
up a version without the splash screen in case thats the
Theres a new version of the Squirrel jar at
Just unzip this file and replace the squirrel-sql.jar from
your Squirrel with this one - after backing it up of course.
The only difference is that there is no splash screen
displayed. Let me know if this makes a difference.

This helped for me.
So after all it turned out to be a bug in the JDK...
Thanks & bye,
Thanks for letting me know Chris.
I'm putting this down as a problem in the JDK and closing this bug report. I'll also add a comment in the
readme in the next version about this.
