On my Ubuntu I’m facing this JVM Bug which suddenly freezes the keyboard of IDEA. Now I’m trying Anils suggestion. Therefore I need to install a Java 7 snapshot:
- download self-extracting binary file of java 7 snapshot
chmod +x jdk-7-ea-bin-b48-linux-i586-19_feb_2009.binto make it executable
./jdk-7-ea-bin-b48-linux-i586-19_feb_2009.binto extract the archive
sudo mv ./jdk1.7.0 /usr/lib/jvmto move it to the other JVMs
update-alternatives --config javato check how many JVMs you already installed
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/jre/bin/java 3
I got 2 installations, so I need to specify a 3
sudo update-alternatives --config javato chance your java version.
java -versionto validate everything is fine
To tell IDEA 8.1 to run with Java 7 you need to add
-Didea.no.jdk.check=true in idea.vmoptions.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that this will fix that problem;)
