I've been a longtime IDEA user but just recently switched to Debian. This is what I'm greeted with upon startup:
IDEA was unable to create a local connection in order to check whether other instance of IDEA is currently running on the same machine. Running multiple instances of IDEA on the same machine may cause unpredictable results because of sharing system folders. Please troubleshoot your TCP/IP configuration and/or local firewall settings. and attach the ~/.IdeaC12/system/log/idea.log file
I thought that was a bit strange, but decided I could live with it so long as I didn't try to open another IDEA process.
Upon trying to build and run my first project, however, I was given this error:
Failed to bind to: /127.0.0.1:xxxxx
where "xxxxx" is a random 5-digit port number (for example, 45378).
As a non-privledged port, most of the information I found online about allowing normal users to use privledged ports didn't apply to my problem. Also, running IDEA as root produced the same error. I've gone so far as to remove iptables, thinking that was the issue, but to no avail.
Here is some information about my system:
colin@digislum:~$ uname -r
colin@digislum:~$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_17"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_17-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
colin@digislum:~/apps/idea-IC-123.169$ cat build.txt
Anyone have any idea what's going on here? I'm ready to learn Netbeans or Eclipse at this point...
