    Try launching the programs from the command line as a normal user and not root. Usually it will spit out useful error messages in the event of a crash. Please post the entire output including the command that you use.

    That's not a java error, it's a segmentation fault. I can't really help you with that. Hopefully someone else will come along who can help.
