    Tom - 2010-03-01


    I updated to rssowl 2.0.4 on fedora 11 x86_64, java -version

    java version "1.6.0_17"

    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.7) (fedora-31.b17.fc11-x86_64)

    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

    getting the following error;

    $ ./RSSOwl

    Mon Mar 01 07:19:13 GMT 2010 - Bundle tracker is not set

    Mon Mar 01 07:19:13 GMT 2010 - Bundle tracker is not set

    Mon Mar 01 07:19:13 GMT 2010 - Bundle tracker is not set

    I updated by copying in the new rssowl over my existing directory, as the
    update function had stopped working with errors about missing spaces.

    this was due to running the 32bit version rather than the 64 bit one

    Could you please explain what you mean by "this was due to running the 32bit
    version rather than the 64 bit one "

    and what you dit?

    There is a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of RSSOwl, which one are you using?

    I think I am using the 64 bit version (how to find out?).

    Solved the problem by removing .rssowl2 folder (backed up my feed list).

    This happened to me the second time - had the same error messages and removing
    .rssowl2 solved it.

    However I'd like to know how to fix this problem without removing .rssowl2

    You can find out by looking at the JAR files in the plugin folder and see if
    there is a org.eclipse.swt with a x86_64 in its name.

    I have these files:

    This looks like the 64 Bit version. Can you try start with the -clean
    argument? e.g. rssowl -clean

    I just installed RSSOwl 2.0.6 32 bit version (i didn't found any files
    with a x86_64 in its name in plugins folder).

    I tried it with OpenJDK 6 and Sun Java 7u5 on my system: Xubuntu 12.04

    And i have the same result (i tried rssowl -clean to):

    please install the latest version of RSSOwl (2.1.2) from
    http://www.rssowl.org/download , not 2.0.6!

    And yes, RSSOwl (32Bit version) won't start with a 64-Bit JVM. Both (RSSOwl
    and the JVM) do need to have the same architecture.

    Hi, I had the same problem.
    Have a new Ubuntu 12.10 x64 - I spent two hours to run RSSowl )
    RSSowl x64 didn't start anyway, but one x32 did - it only needed ia32-lib from repository.

    P.S. My JAVA is not from Ubuntu repo, it is from Oracle site - aka portable (x64, x32 - I tried either or both of them).

    You should not use that Oracle version of Java since it does not update automatically. Use the one from Ubuntu repository instead.
