Jmonkeyplatform crashes very often


Is it just my machine or is jmonkeyplatform very unstable on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04)? It seems pretty much everything I do causes the jmonkeyplatform to crash.

I have used beta version and fresh version from SVN, no difference. Here is terminal output from one crash.

[exec] OGL: Enter showing state.

[exec] OGL: Ceased throttling update loop.

[exec] INFO [com.jme3.gde.core.sceneexplorer.SceneExplorerTopComponent]: New material listener for : models/plants/firtree/firtree-firtree_geom_2.j3m

[exec] EDT: componentResized 722, 365

[exec] The program ‘java’ received an X Window System error.

[exec] This probably reflects a bug in the program.

[exec] The error was ‘BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)’.

[exec] (Details: serial 20170 error_code 8 request_code 140 minor_code 4)

[exec] (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;

[exec] that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.

[exec] To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line

[exec] option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful

[exec] backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

[exec] AL lib: ReleaseALC: 1 device not closed

yh linux is the least stable platform for jME, there are some tricks to make it more stable, i think @mifth knows them

Yes, the SDK can be a bit unstable on Linux.

Make sure you use Oracle Java as it seems to work better than OpenJDK.

Ubuntu 12.04 is a very buggy distro/release for starters, but this also happens for me on arch & openSuse. Also you may notice that the material editor is limited. There are some tips in the FAQ to help with this

  • Try to switch desktop effects off.
  • Try to install the latest proprietary video driver.
  • Try to run JMP from console.
