    Java crashes in 14.10

    I have been using Ubuntu since 2006 (8.04) and have never had so many serious problems as I am experiencing with 14.10. I am spending days trying to get applications and programs that worked seamlessly in 14.04 to work in 14.10 and I am seriously thinking of deleting the partition and re-installing 14.04. Or maybe it is time to change distros.

    The latest problem to show up is a Java runtime problem. I use the Arduino IDE and if I try and save a sketch the IDE crashes with the following messages. I have tried different JRE's such as oracle-java7, oracle-java8 and icedtea but it always crashes and doesn't save the sketch.

    ~$ arduino
    Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -javaagent:/usr/share/java/jayatanaag.jar 
    # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
    #  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f26f320a70c, pid=6714, tid=139804138272512

    Does anyone know what is wrong?

    Have you tried purging Oracle Java and then installing openJDK? I know sometimes Oracle Java works better for some applications, but perhaps this application might work better with openJDK?

    Since you are having problems with 14.10 compared to 14.04, I can think of two possible is that the installation got corrupted and the other is that the newer kernel doesn't support your hardware as well. If the installation got corrupted, a fresh installation might help. But if you have an old amd-based computer you might be stuck with older versions of any form of linux.
