Setup: Windoze 2000 sp2 with 2 video cards --

1. NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 M64 PCI 16 MB
2. Intel Corp. 810 Graphics Controller

I am using card number 1 with a Viewsonic P810 monitor
at 1600 x 1200 pixels at 16 bit color.

Everytime I launch jEdit 4 pre 4, it crashes (jEdit
3.2.2 does the same). The log file is included below.
Reducing the color depth to 256 colors (8 bit)
corrects the problem and jEdit can launch and work
fine. 8 bit is the only setting that works... 32 bit
also crashes. Seems like Java has a problem with this
particular card or settings.

Header of error log follows (complete error log is
attached) --

An unexpected exception has been detected in native
code outside the VM.

    This is a Java bug, not a jEdit bug, but you should check
    to make sure your drivers for the video card are up to
    data. I am running the TNT2 card on Windows 2000 and have
    no problems with Java or jEdit.

    To check you drivers, go to "Control Panel>System", then
    select the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager"
    button, followed by the "Display Adapter" item and
    underneath that the item for the video card. You will then
    see a description of the video cars. Click the "Driver"
    tab, followed by the "Update Driver" button.

    You should also check with the card manufacturer at
    http://www.nvidia.com.

    Hi Jgellene,

    Thanks for your response. Since I last reported, I have now
    fixed this bug... and I don't quite know how. I did install
    a different driver from nvidia, and that screwed up things
    really bad as I couldn't even start my computer. Then I
    reverted back to the original driver, and from then on
    jEdit works fine. Go figure.

    That said, I also realize this is a Java bug, not a jEdit
    bug. However, since jEdit is built on Java, it becomes a
    jEdit bug as well. :-(. After all, someone's gotta fix it,
    and if the user can't then we can't just ignore the problem

    Anyway, it works for me now, and I hope if someone else
    faces the same problem they get some insight from these
    emails.

    Thanks,

    pk/
