I'm trying to use www.bitlet.org
to download a file.
When I start the download it says "Loading virtual machine" and stays there till I close the window. It never goes farther. I am running Fedora 8 on x86-32 machine. I tried the default java installed with Fedora 8 first.
'java -version' gives
java version "1.7.0"
IcedTea Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b21)
IcedTea Client VM (build 1.7.0-b21, mixed mode)
Then I installed Sun Java jdk1.6.0_06
made sure the path was right
then I logged out and back into Xwindows
running 'java -version' gives now gives
java version "1.6.0_06"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_06-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 10.0-b22, mixed mode, sharing)
I went to www.jgames.com
and able to play an online java game there
so, I assume java is installed correctly. Both versions of java do the same thing, a window open and says "Loading virtual machine" and thats it.
There are no relevant messages in /var/log/messages
I did a google search for the error and found nothing that seemed to give an answer to the problem.
Any ideas on how to get bitlet running?
