View Full Version : [ubuntu] azureus won't start

I am trying to use azureus in Ubuntu 8.04, but I keep getting a weird error.

brad@badwulf:~$ azureus

Any idea what exactly is causing this? I am using Ubuntu 8.04 x64 with openJDK.

java version "1.6.0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b09)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0-b09, mixed mode)

Well it's possible that it's because you are using the default version of Java and not the sun version. I had that problem with other programs and when I switched to the sun version, everything worked fine.
I'm just curious, what is wrong with transmission? I've tried every bittorrent client I can find, and so far transmission is the fastest. It's also the default client in Hardy.

I just switched it to use the sun version of java, but it does the same thing.

I don't use Transmission because it wastes so much bandwidth. It is worthless when there is over 300Mib of fialed download on a 700Mib file.. That is about 4 hours of wasted bandwidth for me.

All right, after this I'm out of ideas. Try following this thread (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-ubuntu-linux-install-configure-jdk-jre/) and let me know if it works. Hopefully it will. Good luck.
