Description Will Woods 2008-10-07 13:36:15 EDT
netbeans won't start on my rawhide system(s). The error message given is:
  Cannot find java. Please use the --jdkhome switch.

java-1.6.0-openjdk is installed and working properly:
  [wwoods@kraid ~]$ java -version
  java version "1.6.0_0"
  OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b12)
  OpenJDK Client VM (build 1.6.0_0-b12, mixed mode)

Hi Will,

Probably it is a bug that has been fixed in the release 7 by me yesterday.

Please, give me more info about configuration of your rawhide system, and check if JDK is installed too (not JRE only!), e.g.
$ javac -version

You're right - -7 fixes the problem. Thanks!
