IDEA on Debian / iBook

Hi all,

I have an iBook running Debian and I am wondering if it is possible to run IDEA on it? If so, does anyone know which JVM I should use and where can I download it?

Thanks,
Shing

how about this one: "(Linux Installer, with JRE (Release Candidate III 4.0))" from the download page?

greets easy - iBook-user, too :)

Can you run Java at all? Sun doesn't make a JRE for PPC linux, and I don't think anyone else does either, so I don't think you can run IDEA.

The last version I saw for PowerPC was from http://www.blackdown.org and was 1.3.1.

Hi all,

I just tried build 1156 and I got the following error message:

  1. ./idea1156.bin

Preparing to install...

Unpacking the JRE...

The 1.4 JDK for Linux from IBM might work:

Try the 32-bit pSeries version.

There's a package in Gentoo which apparently will install from the IBM
SDK that you download.

I just tried the pseries jdk. It gave me the following error:

JVMDG217: Dump Handler is Processing a Signal - Please Wait.
JVMDG303: JVM Requesting Java core file
JVMDG304: Java core file written to /usr/local/idea-1156/bin/javacore.20040213.083044.775.txt

Hmm... I guess not. It was worth a try though.

Sorry, I can't be of anymore help. The only other thing I can think of
is to reinstall Mac OS X and use it's 1.4 JRE ;)
