IDEA on X86_64 Linux

Is anyone running IDEA on a 64-bit JVM on Linux?

If so, any hints, setup-tips, gotchas etc to share?

Is it worth doing?

Yup, I'm running Irida on amd64. Works pretty well. I use sun's jdk 5
for development, and blackdown's 1.4.2_01 as the Iridia jre.
(Add -Didea.no.jdk.check=true to the idea.sh startup script - I don't
now about the .lax stuff but I guess it's similar)

To run Pallada on amd64 is a bit more work. Run it on on blackdowns's
jdk for Idea's runtime(add the -Didea.no.jdk.check=true), delete the
libbreakgen.so (it's 32bits...), and add a symlink from 'amd64' to . in
the jdk bin directory:
(ln -s /opt/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.01/bin/amd64
/opt/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.01/bin or similar) - for some reason IDEA wants
to run ]]>/bin/amd64/java. Don't know what's up with that, but this
fixed it. After that it works ok.

Is it worth doing?


Well, it works for me(tm), but with Pallada debugging was somewhat
flakey. Irida works almost out of the box, so I'd recommend running that
one. (I run build 3245)

Running here...

At the moment I use Gentoo with 32Bit Emulation.

I had running idea under SUN JDK 1.5 successfully too (more ore less ;).
