Intellij 10.5 crashes right after start

Hi All!

After sucessfully setting up my project Intellij suddenly dies. When starting it up again it seems that the initialization process always causes a crash in the JNI lib. I did not encounter these problems with any other version I used before (mainly 9 in the past year).

I tried to modify the GC settings by adding a file "idea.vmoptions" but problem still exists and I wonder if these file is read at all.

Any suggestion?



Thanks in advance

Jens

P.S. The Java version used is:

java version "1.6.0_15"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_15-b03-219)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.1-b02-90, mixed mode)

Hello jens,

The VM options for the Mac version of IntelliJ IDEA are specified in the
Info.plist file. As the crash happens during GC, you can try specifying a
different GC algorithm in the VM options in Info.plist.

starting it up again it seems that the initialization process always

but problem still exists and I wonder if these file is read at all.

Hi Dmitry!


I changed the plist.file
32: -Xms128m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=250m -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=64m -XX:+UseSerialGC
64: -Xms128m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=350m -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=64m -XX:+UseCompressedOops -XX:+UseSerialGC

still same problem. chrashes after several minutes

Any suggestion which garbage collector to use?
Any suggestion concerning JAVA version to use?
