Description Knut J BJuland 2001-02-11 16:32:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-ac9 i686)

I think glibc 2.2.1 might cause problem with Suns 1.3_01 JDK installed from

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I just type in /usr/bin/java/jdk1.3.0_01/bin/java --version
2. Try to start mozilla with installed java plugin	
3.Or start netscape 6.0.1

Actual Results:  Java freezes and hang on the command line. I use bash.
Mozilla and Netscape 6 does not start.

Expected Results:  Java should have show version number and mozilla and
Netscape should have lanuched.

I use kernel 2.4.1-ac9.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2001-02-13 07:53:12 EST
This is a buggy JDK (it has hardcoded knowledge about thread stacks being 2MB
in size aligned to that size). We're now discussing what do with that.

Do note that this behaviour happens with both Sun's JRE, as well as IBM's JRE.

IBM's JRE can be get work work when force-installing the i386 glibc packages
(rpm -ivh --force glibc-...-i386.rpm). This however does not fix Sun's JRE 
(which is used in netscape, and various other components)

Comment 7 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-21 07:59:18 EST
Please try glibc-2.2.2-7 and pass
in environment to JRE.
Comment 8 Knut J BJuland 2001-03-21 08:55:14 EST
Java works with glibc 2.2.2-7 and export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 in
Comment 9 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-21 08:59:26 EST
Sun is testing a JDK fix ATM AFAIK, so with next JDK it won't be necessary
to use this env variable.

Comment 11 Vladimir Kondratiev 2001-04-06 14:03:28 EDT
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

is better to put in $JAVA_HOME/bin/.java_wrapper
This way it is set for Java only. Tested with appletviewer and Forte for Java.

Sun's jdk1.3.1rc2 works with redhat7.1
