the basic gist of it is, i have java 1.5 installed, my path knows about it, yet messenger is unhappy. this is a netbsd/2.0 computer, so java is run in linux compatibility mode … i guess i’'m not sure what information you actually need from me, so … yeah… ideas?


I’'m not really sure that Java 1.5 will work on BSD – that looks like an internal error. Can you try running other Java programs? Perhaps some of the samples that ship with the JDK?



i was getting the same error while running JM autostart daemon in Archlinux. I have fixed it by putting one line to a daemon file:

export JAVA_HOME=/opt/java/jre

though Java is installed correctly and JM is starting normally when launching manually.
