#3 zero sized window after starting install

I started the compiere-client install on Linux (SuSE 7.2, kernel 2.4).
After selecting the language a zero sized window
popped up. No chance to resize. This happened under
the kde2 environment as well as using fvwm2, so I was unable to go further in the installation.

May this be a Java problem? I have installed
Sun's SDK 1.3.1 and IBM's JRE 1.1.8.

Any suggestions?

    To make sure:
    - The client was started and you get a propertly sized
    window
    - after changing the language (should have the
    default "English"), the window size is 0
    Correct?
    If yes, that's very odd as it just updates the labels and
    executes pack() ... and a Java bug!

    Please check and re-open the call if necessary.

    It is as you described.
    I also had problems installing oracle. I fetched the
    latest jre1.1.8 from ibm an told the OUI to use it instead of the jre which was shipped wis oracle.
    Otherwise a SIGSEV occured when starting the OUI.
    Oracle also needs a patch (a glibc-stub) to be installed before one can start netasst and dbassist.
    How can I tell your installer to invoke another javavm then the one which is include in compiere-client.bin?

    Oh well, I forgot, that the Linux install does not come
    with the Java VM. You need the latest Java 1.3!
    - Please check the content of the JAVA_HOME variable
    - go to that directory and in the 'bib' sub-directory
    - execute java -version (should print 1.3.1 or later)

    Sorry, but I have to come back again.
    There is a javavm included in compiere-client.bin (build 1.3.1-b24) which will be used during installation.
    One can find it in
    /tmp/ininstall.dir.<stamp>/Linux/resource/jre/bin.
    I have also a javavm (build 1.3.1_01) and let JAVA_HOME
    point to it without effect.

    Both VMs are fine.
    Just to make sure:
    - You have JAVA_HOME pointed to one og the VMs
    - That VM (i.e. /bin sub-directory) is in the path
    - when you from anywhere enter java -version you get the
    correct VM

    If all: Yes - I have no clue :-(
    Several people have it running on Red Hat, but that should
    not make a difference.

    Finally the installation could be finished with
    jre1.1.8 from IBM. There is maybe something wrong
    with Sun's jdk1.3.1 and Suse7.2 (kernel 2.4 and glibc2).
    I hope testing compiere will work. This is a test
    I'm doing at home at night to investigate if it is
    useful for my company.

    Thank you for advices.

    Just to inform you:

    the linux compiere-client.bin include a java VM and
    installation is forced to use it. It is a bit tricky to
    use another VM.
    the compiere-server.bin is shipped without VM and is
    using a VM of your choice.
