Hi there,

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
    crash.

    (I am unfamiliar with the sourceforge bug tracker, I hope
    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
    result.

    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
    bzip2'ed).

    TIA

    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?

    Bye, Chris.

    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
    <grin/>.

    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
    problem.

    Thanks
    Col

    Theres a new version of the Squirrel jar at
    http://www.users.bigpond.com/colbelloz/alpha/unzipme.zip

    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,
    Chris.

    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.
