    Default Confused Ubuntu-ist installing JDK7

    It started when I decided to try to make $100 for a program that would run full screen. I knew I should use Java because the guy who wants the app runs Windoze 7. I installed eclipse and found a website that had an example of running Java full screen:

    Show Graphics on full Screen

    I fired up a thread on Java-forums because I received a GDK error:

    Create Full Screen Graphic Displayer

    They came to the conclusion that I needed to get rid of GNU stuff (something that I am not sure how to do) and told me to install a new JDK. Someone on the forum tested my code on Windoze and said it ran fine. I hemmed and hawed at all the manuals to read and all the choices and they held my hand through it but I guess they are sick of it now. I ended up going to this site:

    Java SE Development Kit 7 Downloads

    and I'm warm and fuzzy about tarballs so I went with that after getting an rpm from somewhere so I extracted it to my user /home/kayve/src:

    root@kayve-laptop:~# cd /home/kayve/src/
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src# ls
    Book.bin  jdk1.7.0  jdk-7-linux-x64.rpm  scid  stockfish-211-ja  thesis
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src# ls jdk1.7.0/
    bin        demo     lib      README.html  src.zip
    COPYRIGHT  include  LICENSE  release      THIRDPARTYLICENSEREADME.txt
    db         jre      man      sample
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src# 
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src# cat jdk1.7.0/release 
    JAVA_VERSION="1.7.0"
    OS_NAME="Linux"
    OS_VERSION="2.6"
    OS_ARCH="amd64"
    SOURCE=""
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src#

    I thought I have 64 bit maybe I shouldn't have the AMD version:

    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src# uname -a
    Linux kayve-laptop 2.6.38-11-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 29 20:51:21 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    root@kayve-laptop:/home/kayve/src#

    My Ubuntu is Nutty Narwhal I'm not sure if the above tells you that

    Ubuntu_Version.jpg

    Anyway.. these installation instructions just don't sit right with me:

    Linux Platform Install (JDK)

    I can't be done, is my inkling, and well.. my Eclipse Full screen program verifies this. The error is still there:

    (.:2141): Gdk-CRITICAL **: _gdk_pixmap_new: assertion `(width != 0) && (height != 0)' failed
    java.lang.InternalError: Gdk: _gdk_pixmap_new: assertion `(width != 0) && (height != 0)' failed
       at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(libgcj.so.11)
    **
    ERROR:../../../../../../../src/libjava/classpath/native/jni/gtk-peer/gnu_java_awt_peer_gtk_GtkVolatileImage.c:79:Java_gnu_java_awt_peer_gtk_GtkVolatileImage_init: assertion failed: (pixmap != NULL)

    How do I properly install Java and make my Full screen code work correctly?

    I should have asked, "How do I properly install JDK and make my code work correctly?" I think.

    Default Re: Confused Ubuntu-ist installing JDK7

    It looks to me as though you're installing 64-bit Java on a linux-pae system. I'm not convinced it *won't* work, but I have severe doubts that it will work properly. If I was using PAE, I think I'd install the 32-bit JVM. The reason is that even though PAE gives you access to more than 4GB RAM, your applications (I might have this bit wrong) can only access 4GB at once - as though they're stuck in a 32-bit bubble. If I was you, I'd either go 64-bit everything, or 32-bit everything. If you have more than 2GB in your PC, perhaps PAE + 32-bit Java is the right combination.
