Java6 JVM crash starting Openfire 3.5.0RC1 on Ubuntu AMD64

I installed openfire using the deb package and getting the following error:

An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:

SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00002aaaaaab4a05, pid=8220, tid=1075882304

Java VM: Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (1.6.0-b105 mixed mode)

Problematic frame:C [http://ld-linux-x86-64.so.2+0x9a05]

It starts correctly using Java1.5, and openfire 3.4.5 also starts correctly using Java6.

I am attaching the crash report.

We are having a similar problem with Openfire 3.6.4 on Linux / amd64. Is anyone having a similar issue or has any hint or idea what this could be?

The interesting thing is that it crashes with current thread GCTaskThread

Would you please try out the soon to be released 3.7.0 beta? Here is a linux rpm you should be able to use:



Have you tried compiling Openfire from source? It’d be interesting to see if that fixes the problem.


try 1.6.0_21 instead of 1.6.0_18. Anyhow this seems to be a JVM issue and not an Openfire issue.
