Java error log related to oo crash.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2008-07-01 12:34:30 UTC
I wonder if this also happens if you use libgcj ? 

Assuming that both are installed, you can tell OOo to use the other with
tools->options->>java and select the "Free Software Foundation"
option instead of the auto-selected "Sun Microsystems" option. And then restart
OOo and try the wizards again

report_should_not_reach_here(char const*, int) ... os_abort inside openjdk

Not sure if this is openjdk specific, but I'm fairly sure that it worked under
libgcj the last time I was able to check under ppc. #3 shows how to try with
libgcj to see if that theory is correct

> I wonder if this also happens if you use libgcj ? 

Yes unfortunately it does. Well the behaviour is slightly different. Instead of
an absolute crash, OO locks solid and CPU usage hangs around %100 indefinately
in some kind of infinite loop.

This is with: libgcj-4.3.0-8.ppc

If there's any way I can get useful debugging information from this, let me know.

Comment 7 Ian Chapman 2008-07-02 02:08:07 UTC
Out of curiosity I've just tried IBM's java implementation for PPC:

ibm-java-ppc-sdk-6.0-1.0.ppc.rpm (Java 1.6.0)

and surprisingly this works perfectly. Obviously not an official solution however.

Comment 8 Lillian Angel 2008-11-05 18:19:56 UTC
Can you try to reproduce this with the latest version of OpenJDK in rawhide?

Comment 9 Gary Benson 2008-11-06 08:34:31 UTC
This was probably
It should be fixed now, at least upstream.
