can't run minecraft on opesuse Leap 15.0

Hello ! community

well i am trying to install minecraft for 2 days now , and i can’t fined any solution for it.
i lunch it from terminal: java -jar Mincraft.jar and launcher is opend but when i click on play it crashes with following messages:

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: Option UseConcMarkSweepGC was deprecated in version 9.0 and will likely be removed in a future release.
Unrecognized VM option ‘CMSIncrementalMode’
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

thanks.

I’m not a gamer, but following a quick search I did find this Ubuntu thread

Edit your Java arguments (Profile Settings) for starting the game and get rid of CMSIncrementalMode.

Hope that helps.

Hi
I would imagine it’s more like Java 10 vs Java 8…

@OP What java version is installed?

Hi
Seems it’s being worked on for Java 10…

https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/88xrn8/minecraft_still_uses_java_8_meanwhile_im_sitting/

I’ve got 8 installed on Tumbleweed and runs fine, but see the same error here on SLES 15, which uses java 10…

I assumed openJDK

java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_171"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.8.0) (build 1.8.0_171-b11 suse-lp150.2.3.1-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.171-b11, mixed mode)

I don’t have the Oracle version installed (and the minecraft launcher works for me)

sudo update-alternatives --list java
[sudo] password for root: 
/usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk/bin/java

Code:

java -version
openjdk version “1.8.0_171”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.8.0) (build 1.8.0_171-b11
suse-lp150.2.3.1-x86_64) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.171-b11,
mixed mode)

sudo update-alternatives --list java
[sudo] password for root:
/usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk/bin/java


Hi
On Tumbleweed it’s;


java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_171"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.8.0) (build 1.8.0_171-b11 suse-1.2-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.171-b11, mixed mode)

So is 10 available on Leap 15.0 as well?

I have been running Leap with Java 8 openjdk for a while now and had no issues* running a minecraft server on it.

Just a note. don’t use the java-1.8.0 from the one-click opensuse website if you have Leap installed, that version is connected to Tumbleweed and after you download it your system will migrate over to tumbleweed. I learned the hard way and had to reinstall.
You would be better off using zypper in a console. As deano ferrari above has shown.
zypper se java_1.8
this will search for java 8 with your current leap repo’s.
then you only need to install using zypper

zypper install “Java version”

I tried tumbleweed, way to many bugs and kwin and kwin_x11 constantly crashed and required a complete reinstall.
