Thread: Frostwire

  1. #1

    Default Frostwire

    I downloaded Frostwire to my openSUSE Tumbleweed. When I tried to fire it up, it stated that I didn't have Java installed. No problem. I installed Java and tried to fire it up again and get the following message
    Code:
    eddie@linux-p6fs:~> frostwire
    HOSTNAME IS linux-p6fs.site
    Starting FrostWire...

    OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com [java = openjdk]

    ******************************************************************
    Something went wrong with FrostWire.
    Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
    (FrostWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.7+)
    The version of Java in your PATH is:
    openjdk version "1.8.0_40"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_40-b12)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.40-b16, mixed mode)
    
    eddie@linux-p6fs:~>
    What am I doing wrong?

    There is a Tunbleweed forum here. That is the place where the Tumbleweed users gather.

    Had the same issue here. Cured by removing all instances of Java, then installing

    java-1_7_0-openjdk


    All good after that. So tried re-installing jre 1.8 and same again. So looks like an incomatibility problem between the two. Had to revert again for it to run.
