[jitsi-users] Jitsi does not start with Oracle JDK 1.8

Running the latest Jitsi (stable) on Debian Wheezy 64 bits, Oracle JDK 1.8
downloaded just now. The JDK was installed following these instructions:
http://blog.mbentley.net/2013/08/installing-oracle-java-7-jre-jdk-on-debian-wheezy/

Note that other Java programs seem to be working correctly, so I don't
think it's a Java issue, hence the bug report.

The attachment contains the stderr output from Jitsi.

Have you tried JDK 7? We haven't officially tried JDK 8 yet, it's just
been released.

“There's a reason we separate military and the police: one fights the enemy
of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military
becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.”

Works with JDK 7u51. I only got this traceback, but I assume it's not fatal:

21:32:18.445 SEVERE: [13]
org.jitsi.impl.neomedia.device.DeviceConfiguration.error() Failed to
register custom Renderer
org.jitsi.impl.neomedia.jmfext.media.renderer.video.JAWTRenderer with JMF.
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError:
/usr/share/jitsi/lib/native/libjnawtrenderer.so: libjawt.so: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory

Thanks for the workaround! :slight_smile:
