    Democracy T.V


    I know its a silly little program. But I continuously have problems with this program crashing on me. It will run for about 5 to 7 seconds, and then disappear. I never see it again. I am running sabayon Linux with KDE 3.5.6.
    It even crashes when Beryl isn't running. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Try launching it from the terminal - open konsole and launch democracyplayer. When it crashes post the output back here.

    The only thing I can find is this -

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/gentoo/+s...rea/+bug/98725

    There is mention of a podcast there. Sabayon is Gentoo based so I hope this will help.

    It seems the problem is Java not Democracy TV, it seems Sabayon is using Blackdown Java which is rather unstable in my opinion and it appears it's missing symbol needed by Democracy TV. Try with Sun Java

    Don't worry, I'll help you
    We will disable Java on your system for some time, don't worry if something doesn't work

    mv /opt/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.03 /opt/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.03-backup
    Download the Linux version of Java from java.com: Hot Games, Cool Apps , DON'T download the RPM, get the *.bin (the other one) and save it to your desktop
    chmod +x ~/jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin
    ~/jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin
    Copy the folder just created to /opt

    Does it matter that my processor is a dual core X86_64? Just curious because I see a 64 bit option.
    also when i run chmod +x ~/jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin, I get an error telling me no such directory exists

    Did you save it on your desktop? Maybe the file name changed, change it according to the new one.

    There's no big difference between X86_64X86_64? and X86 , it depends on what you prefer, quantity over very slight or even unnoticeable perfomance jump
