Description

When I start kepler.sh in a freshly unzipped kepler distribution, the process hangs on the splash screen.

Investigating the state of Java shows it is hanging in a 'futex' system call.

This happens when the home directory is on an NFS mount; it doesn't happen for a user with a home directory on the local disk.

This is the case both for Sun Java 1.4.2_12 and 1.5.0_08.

The systems that (so far) show this behaviour: Scientific Linux 3.0.7 and CentOS 3.8.

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins about 12 years ago

I am demoting this bug from 'Blocker' to 'Major' simply because the use case of having the home directory on a NSF mount is relatively uncommon. [For most users, the home directory is on the local drive.]

This sounds like a java issue to me. I don't think this is within our scope of fixing.
