The glibc in the original RH9 release worked.
The new glibc doesn't.

If you read the release notes, you need to use minimally Java 1.4.1, but that to me has 
segfaulted quite often unless I use LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 to disable NPTL.   I'm now 
using Sun Java 1.4.2 beta and it seems to be stable without disabling NPTL. 

Comment 2 Volker Meyer 2003-04-14 05:58:44 UTC
I wish SAP would read the release notes. They still insist on users, wishing to
access SAP applicationservers via JAVA, to use 1.3.1.
According to SAP, Java1.4.x is not supported.
Try intalling a SAP-Gui with Java1.4. It won't work.
I am now using 1.3.1 from sun, and that doesn't segfault.

Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-17 18:58:36 UTC
I'm closing this bug since it is no problem in glibc.  Most Java implementations
are broken.  Sun's is the best (= most compliant wrt the glibc ABI)
implementation.  1.4.1 and 1.4.2 of Sun's JVM seem to work nicely.

Comment 4 Volker Meyer 2003-04-22 06:39:08 UTC
I opened a call at SAP with the number: 002007974700001463272003

It's probably not accessible by public, but if there's anybody else out there,
stupid enough to try using a Java SAP-GUI on Linux, you might want to coninue
reading this bug. =:)

Comment 5 Nils Philippsen 2003-05-21 12:24:18 UTC
Works for me when using LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5; System is Red Hat Linux 9 with
all current updates (kernel-2.4.20-13.9, glibc-2.3.2-27.9), Java is IBM Java 1.3.1.
