[sip-comm-dev] SC on Linux


#1

Hi,

I tried to launch SC on my debian box today (both from the latest sources and deb packages), but I had a bunch of error and NullPointerException (one per bundle that is launched at startup time). Before posting the long list of logs, I was wondering if that was a known issue?

Cheers,

Hello Romain,

I run SC on Ubuntu Intrepid from the sources with "ant rebuild run".
Apart from the WARNINGs and SEVEREs about missing resources such as
colors in our resources which are not specific to Linux and I see them
on Windows and Mac OS X as well, I'm not getting
NullPointerExceptions.

Best regards,
Lubo

Hi,

My Linux comments.

1) I just formatted a live USB stick with Ubuntu 8.10 using 8GB partition
and 2 GB for persistent storage.

2) Since I knew that SC needs java, I downloaded Sun-java 6.11 from java.com
and installed it by opening a terminal and typing "sh name_of_newest_Sun_java"
Accepted license and it installed OK.

3) I installed the latest SC build ??1544?? (don't remember). The SC installer
did not check that I had a newer version of java installed and went to Ubuntu
repository to download an Ubuntu java6.10ubuntu2 build.

Whether this is correct behavior to only trust packages from Ubuntu repositories
and not trust Sun java is perhaps a difficult question to answer?

4) SC appeared to install correctly, but there is a problem in loading it.
Something about Xpermissions. Impossible to load by going to menu
Internet, SC. Impossible to load in a terminal window.

SC will start loading only if I go to a terminal window and use sudo to
load it. However during loading SC crashes and stops loading.

This is an experimental setup to permit me to run Linux from a USB stick,
so I do not have email installed on it. I took a photo of events before the
crash showing severe errors and color problem.

Hope this helps finding the problem.

Hi Lubomir,

It seems that I have the same symptoms as what Earl described (logs enclosed). Quickly googling the "Locking assertion failure. [...]" message told me that it could be related with xorg. I'll try to have a further look at this.

It's a problem between java graphic libs and the libxcb library.
The libxcb developers did modify the way they handle the lock
check. This causes a lot of graphical Java apoplications to fail.
AFAIK there is a workaround: you need to set a specific environment
variable (can't exactly remeber which one :slight_smile: ) to force libxcb
to ignore the lock problem.

Werner

Werner,

since this is a very serious development that prevents the Linux
version from loading, and since you seem to be familiar with
this libxcb sloppy lock issue, would you please look into
the workaround that apparently has already been done
and bring this into SC, so that SC can function with Linux ?

Earl,

on my openSuse it just works but brings up a specific warning
(see below) about this locking issue. Other Java programs that
use Swing also issue this warning, thus I googled a bit and
found some info about this.

Several articles explain that setting the following environment
variable

export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=true
   or
export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

shall solve the problem.

On my openSuse 10.3 this was not necessary, setting this variable
didn't change the behaviour. libxcb just shows the following warning:

libxcb: WARNING! Program tries to unlock a connection without having acquired
         a lock first, which indicates a programming error.
         There will be no further warnings about this issue.

but works otherwise. Thus I cannot test and check this workaround

Regards,
Werner

Hi,

at
http://download.sip-communicator.org/nightly/windows/

both the latest

nightly.build.1549.exe
and
nightly.build.1548.exe

have defective exe files.

They should be removed or fixed.

build 1547 functions.

Hi Werner,

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that next week when I'll have an access to my linux box. I was planning to test ZRTP (video, and the new GUI), I'll give you some feedback then!

Hi All,

I have had some strange problems with LiveUSB Ubuntu 8.10, but by using
a 10GB partition and giving 3GB to the persistent partition it appears to be
working correctly now.

I believe my last Linux install was build 1555 ??? and it went crazy.
The CPU speed oscillated between 800 & 1200 MHz while presence was
blinking on and off.

Since the newest creation of a LiveUSB stick, I have not had any problems
with sloppy lock issue any more. It works without needing any setting
of an envoronment variable. This afternoon I installed a newer Linux version
of SC and it appears to work OK.

Regards, Earl

Hi again,

Actually the trick didn't work on my box. By looking further on the net, I've seen some similar issues reported more than 1 year ago, that were supposed to be solved by updated libraries. My Debian is up-to-date though.

I don't have much time to fix that right now but I'll take another look in the future.

after updating Java to version 6 the warning messages disappeared

#13

I found that Java 6 update 11 installed with no problems on
Ubuntu 8.10, which is based on Debian.

Romain,

after updating Java to version 6 the warning messages disappeared
and all works quite good. Can you check if Debian support Java 6

I've tested with both Java5 and Java6. Another guy in my lab runs a Debian too and experiences exactly the same issue, it seems specific to Debian. We'll try to investigate that further.

Actually the trick didn't work on my box. By looking further on the net, I've seen some similar issues reported more than 1 year ago, that were supposed to be solved by updated libraries. My Debian is up-to-date though.
I don't have much time to fix that right now but I'll take another look in the future.

Earl,

on my openSuse it just works but brings up a specific warning
(see below) about this locking issue. Other Java programs that
use Swing also issue this warning, thus I googled a bit and
found some info about this.

Several articles explain that setting the following environment
variable

export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=true
or
export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

shall solve the problem.

On my openSuse 10.3 this was not necessary, setting this variable
didn't change the behaviour. libxcb just shows the following warning:

libxcb: WARNING! Program tries to unlock a connection without having acquired
     a lock first, which indicates a programming error.
     There will be no further warnings about this issue.

but works otherwise. Thus I cannot test and check this workaround

since this is a very serious development that prevents the Linux

the workaround that apparently has already been done
and bring this into SC, so that SC can function with Linux ?

It's a problem between java graphic libs and the libxcb library.
The libxcb developers did modify the way they handle the lock
check. This causes a lot of graphical Java apoplications to fail.
AFAIK there is a workaround: you need to set a specific environment
variable (can't exactly remeber which one :slight_smile: ) to force libxcb
to ignore the lock problem.

Hi Lubomir,

It seems that I have the same symptoms as what Earl described (logs enclosed). Quickly googling the "Locking assertion failure. [...]" message told me that it could be related with xorg. I'll try to have a further look at this.

Hi all,

Doing a little "bissection" into commit releases, the problem first come from the release 4765 (r4764 works fine). It was a GUI big changes made by Yana.

Still searching the problem in this commit.

Any help is welcome :slight_smile:
