Thread: Java problem

  1. #1

    Default Java problem

    Strange things with java. It just doesn't work normally, and mainly it's about the audio. Either it swallows bits and pieces of audio, or doesn't play at all. Also, depends which version i use. But absolutely all of them act kinda funky. openjdk, sun/oracle java.. it's all weird. Sun Java 6 makes some applets slow down producing delays in movement. I've tried Java 7 too from official website by installing rpm's and then assigning applets to browser-plugins folder usin ln -s command. Same prob with sound. I test it mainly on these two websites: Playforia - Free Online Games With Cool Avatars (here i play pool game, you might as well wanna give it a try) Monopoly | Pogo.com

    By the way, as a debian user i've had the same on Debian, BUT.. it happened mainly to sun java 6. That doesn't happen to openjdk and icedtea6, but that thing kicks my CPU up to 100% after a few minutes of playing any applets. Java 7 is perfect on Debian. On openSUSE nothing really helps. It behaves always the same way. Any ideas?..

    Works for me without problems in chromium, in firefox it is a pain.
    OpenJDK 1.6

    Can you also try a different browser? It looks to me as if it is not
    java which is the problem here.

    openSUSE 11.4, Gnome 2.32. Sometimes i may forget things, so don't criticize me harshly.

    As for java.. in Chrome/Chromium the second link never works. Not only for me, and not only on openSUSE. I dunno why.
    But that's not the point, at the moment java doesn't work normally for any of the browsers. And if anything, java works BEST for firefox(icewease) on Debian for me.
    So i dunno how you managed to get it work perfectly on Chromium but in Firefox it sucks for you

    I can not explain you the why or how (since I did nothing), I can only
    tell you how it is on my machine (the Eee PC in the footer).
    chromium-19.0.1031.0-2.1.x86_64 with OpenJDK 1.6.0_22, IcedTea6 1.10.4
    works perfect out of the box on that machine with monopoly on pogo.com
    (also the audio).
    MozillaFirefox-10.0.2-4.1.x86_64 with same java is sluggish and one time
    simply crashes.
    I can try the same on a different machine with openSUSE 12.1.

    That's not neccessary i think. I guess it's just that things tend to work differently for me. By the way, firefox crashes for me too when i try running monopoly. But that happens only with openjdk/sun java 6 usually. Anyways.. problem still remains to be a problem. I dunno what to do.

    Leap 15_KDE

    so, tell us: when you moved from Debian to openSUSE, how did you do
    that? i mean, did you do a complete format install of all the partitions
    used for openSUSE (including /home/[you]/) *or* did you retain the old
    /home and use it in openSUSE?

    well, in either case (retained or not) use YaST to create a new test
    user, log out and log back in as the new user and test java in the
    places which gives problems--any change?

    The reason for that is what we should find. Can you give some details
    for your hardware, does the sound work well in other (non java)
    applications?

    Sorry for the delay guys.

    so, tell us: when you moved from Debian to openSUSE, how did you do
    that? i mean, did you do a complete format install of all the partitions
    used for openSUSE (including /home/[you]/) *or* did you retain the old

    user, log out and log back in as the new user and test java in the
    places which gives problems--any change?
    I formatted the partition, meaning there were no leftovers remained after Debian, and thus that cannot affect it anyhow.
    It's just that here things work differently...

    As for test user.. i've installed openSUSE a few times, everytime the same story. So i don't think that can help actually...

    The reason for that is what we should find. Can you give some details
    for your hardware, does the sound work well in other (non java)
    applications?
    Intel HDA. And yes, sound works properly for all other things, even for skype.
    Like i said, i had this on Debian too, and i suspect that has little to do with audio as such, but probably something else which is yet a mystery to all of us. It only afffects audio somehow, but that's not the case i suppose.
