Client fails to run on Linux & Windows using JDK 7 #75
After updating my java installation to JDK7 (provided by Oracle) on Ubuntu 11.04 the Client does not start up any more. There is a long list of errors printed to the console (see end of this posting) an then the process hangs. The application window is never displayed .
Here are the first 10% of the errors printed to the console.
Cloning and rebuilding the project under JDK7 fixed the issue with the GUI that is not starting up. But there seem to be some more problems. Capturing 8 channels works with any combination of speed and memory size.
There is no update of the data in the GUI after that last line..

This is still a problem for me on Linux mypcname-C55D-A 3.13.0-37-generic #64-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 22 21:28:38 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
... when /usr/bin/java is pointed to jdk 7. I had to download 6 and change run.sh to point to that java to get it to run. Also, it seems like there are some problems with the OLS updater script (backslashes in the cp won't work for Linux I don't think and it isn't going to escape the colon).
Regardless, I can get it to work by hacking the script files but wanted to open this since it was marked as 'resolved' so long ago.
