Default Unable to Get Java 1.7 Beta (PPC) to Work

Well, I found and downloaded Java 1.7 Beta for PPC and hoped I could get it to work on my G4 PPC. I want to run the Nightly version of jD because it has a plugin for a new host that I subscribed to.

After decompressing the Java 1.7 Beta tar.gz archive, I changed the folder name (merely to simplify it) and then placed it in I believe my usr/local directory.

Then I went in with Terminal to set the Export Path variables. Unless I did that wrong, it was a pretty straightforward command.

After I did so, I ran the Terminal command: java -version.

Unfortunately, when it looked at the usr/local/java1.7-macppc/bin folder, it came back with something like the following:

"couldn't locate executable in folder..."

the "Java" executable was in that folder, so I don't know what to think.

Anyone have any suggestions? drbits? Statter? Any Mac hounds out there?

Cool

I would ask for help in a Mac or java, or better, in a java for Mac forum.

Note that usually the host plugins for the Stable version are also used for the Nightly test version and vice versa.

Since December JD is freezing randomly for 20 secs each time, whether in use of not. Then after Christmas it crashed and I lost everything - including some files. A full report was logged at the time. Unfortunately the restore function didn't work at all. So I started again with downloads, but when JD closes, it loses all download info and not even the backups seem to be recognized.

I am using a current version 14-month old MacBookPro, with latest software OS X 1.6, current Java SE 6 and latest released Firefox (normal version). The only upgrade was Firefox in December around the time of these issues...

Having read your various posts I will upgrade to the Nightly Version now to see if this restores its functionality - as its a pain to lose everything each time!

If anyone has any suggestions please do suggest!

Thanks, Pete:outch:
I have the same problem

Hey everyone, Just a problem i ran into when i got my mac.

After downloading jdownloader from their site, opening jdownloader does nothing except the jdownloader icon appears in the doc and becomes stuck there. Only way to get rid of it is to force exist. I have tried both the java 1.5 & 1.6 vers and the same thing happens. I do have the latest java patch from apple installed (1.6.0_22)

Can anyone help please?

Cheers

You need to use the jD version for java 1.6 if you've the JRE 1.6.0_22.

Please upload an 'Emergency' Log.

This might be a stupid question, but here goes...

I run the latest build of JD, have a MacBook Pro, an airport extreme, with an external HDD attached. I have all my media files on the external drive, but I can't seem to download directly from any links to the network drive.
The download speed is very slow, and JD always freezes, and then crashes.
The partial downloads will not resume, when I restart JD.
I have mapped my download folder to /Volumes/2TB-1/Jdownloader

2TB-1 being the name of my network drive...

Any ideas ??

The most likely problem is that your Java version is too new

Please try installing Java 32 bit JRE 1.6.0_17 and see if that fixes your problem.

If that does not fix your problem, please post an emergency log of a JD run that fails.

Let us know your experience.

it has nothing to do with java version.
java 1.6 update 18 is only known versions with java crashes to me.

what format do you use for network drive?
checked if you really download in the correct drive? are the user rights correct to write into this folder?

Note: The stable version of JDownloader has problems on Java 1.7.

Has anybody tried the Nightly Test version of JDownloader on Java 1.7 with a PPC?

Guys as I said before it is not a java problem on OSX as the OSx versions are stable and thats why it took a while for Apple to release their versions of the latest releases such as for the OS X 10.5.8 version :

java version "1.5.0_26"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_26-b03-376-9M3263)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_26-156, mixed mode, sharing)

For the latest 10.6.6 Release :

java -version
java version "1.6.0_22"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04-307-10M3261)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.1-b03-307, mixed mode)

Jdownloader works perfectly on these systems (I run three systems of each with no problem) with the exceptions of occasional host plugins or host decryptor's failing when the hosts make a stupid change.

Now there may be a problem with the newer intel Xeon "Nehalem" processors having a conflict, the jurry is still out on this but several different reports are at Apple forums for a couple of various apps that everyone is still waiting for an appropriate answer on.

As for the PPC, unfortunately you are pretty much stuck either with an older version of JD or trying to experiment with the 1.6.x updates or the 1.7 update both from Oracle. For those I don't remember seeing many if any proper build instructions for PPC from anyone so one has to experiment with the 1.6.x version and as for the 1.7 version it is still in beta as far as the Mac is concerned (both intel and ppc) to my knowledge at this time.

See
"http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html"
"http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/macos/whatsnew/index.html"
"http://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/2010/11/oracle_and_apple_announce_openjdk_project_for_osx.html"
"**External links are only visible to Support Staff**
"**External links are only visible to Support Staff**
Etc.

For the moment I would imagine any build of 1.7 for PPC not to mention intel will be further down the road after they get a fully stable version to begin with.

Re read post # 6 http://board.jdownloader.org/showpos...18&postcount=6 for clarity on the issues one may run into.

I experience a really strange bug with jDownloader on my MacBook Pro.
At home i connect my MBP to an external TFT and have jDownloader run on the external screen.
Whenever i'm on the go jDownloader doesn't detect that my TFT is not connected anymore. Therefore i can't access the jDownloader main window till i connect my external display again and put jDownloader on my MBP screen.

I hope anybody understands my problem and can provide a solution to me?!

Then I see 2 temporary solutions :-

1) the easy one : just move your jD window to the 'internal' screen before you exit it.

2) the 'heavy' one : carry your TFT screen with you wherever you go.

With all this information, I'm still having problem. I just bought an imac. I've read through this thread a million times and still can not use jdownloader. I download the .dmg file. Click on it. The jdownloader icon appears and nothing. I always have to force quit. I'm currently running javaSE 1.6.0_22-b04-307. If I'm doing something wrong, can somebody help me out? Thanks!!!
