Description of problem:
I don't know if this is where I should go for this, but I installed Sun's 
version 1.3.1 of the JDK.  I was haveing problems in the compile, so I 
checked which version the Linux box THINKS it is running:  java -version.  
It informed me that it was: version 1.1 and the Kaffe VM.  I rearranged my 
path to put the newly installed version of Java first.  I rebooted and ran 
the java -version command again.  It informed me that I was running 
version 1.3.1 and the Java Hotspot client VM.  When I went to compile a 
file that I was working on I got the error "-X(blah) heap (blah), can't 
create the Virtual Machine".  I don't know what this means.  I don't know 
who to contact on this.  Pleas dirrect me to the appropriate recources in 
the Red Hat community.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest JDK (1.3.1)
2. Put so that path sees this "java" command first

Actual Results:  Get the comment: "-X(blah) heap (blah), 
                  can't create the Virtual Machine"

Expected Results:  The file should have compiled and given me the

Please direct me to whom I could contact about this in the Red Hat

Well, if it's a problem with Sun's JVM that's *not* a part of Red Hat Linux,
then the questions should go to Sun, not to Red Hat, right?

Comment 2 Lou Rosas 2002-11-15 16:35:25 UTC
NO!  This question should have gone to Red Hat, since this was a problem with 
the setup of the OS.  I had to reinstall the software, and prevent the 
installation of several selected items.  Find someone else to be condescending
