Spark Installation on OpenSuse 10.3

Help Needed.

I need help on installing Spark 5.8 on OpenSuse 10.3.

This is the condition: I have 2 station running OpenSuse 10.3.

  • the 1st unit can run Spark with no comment, I just need to connect it to a OpenFire 3.6.3 Server.

  • the 2nd unit has a Skype Client install and would also be acting as an OpenFire 3.6.3 Server produce the following error whenSpark is run :

citra001:/opt/Spark # ./Spark

java: xcb_xlib.c:52: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock’ failed.

./Spark: line 301: 6034 Aborted “$app_java_home/bin/java” -client -Dinstall4j.jvmDir="$app_java_home" -Dexe4j.moduleName="$prg_dir/$progname" “-Dappdir=$prg_dir/” -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true “-Djava.library.path=$prg_dir/\lib\windows” $INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS -classpath “$local_classpath” com.install4j.runtime.Launcher launch org.jivesoftware.launcher.Startup true false “$prg_dir/logs/error.log” “$prg_dir/logs/output.log” true true false “” true true 0 0 “” 20 20 “Arial” “0,0,0” 8 500 “version 2.5.8” 20 40 “Arial” “0,0,0” 8 500 -1 “$@”

citra001:/usr/lib/jvm # ls

java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0_update12 jre jre-1.5.0 jre-1.5.0-sun jre-sun

Could somebody help me on this ?

Other question would be :

  • Can Spark and OpenFire be on the same unit of computer ?

  • Can Spark and Skype client be on the same unit ? If not, then how to uninstall Skype Client on OpenSuse ?

Thank you.



this is a problem with xcb Libaray.

If this not work you can use this:

cd jre/lib/i386/xawt/

sed -i ‘s/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g’ libmawt.so
