Mac: No compatible version of Java 1.6 is available

Hi!  Has anybody been able to get PyCharm to work on a PowerPC Mac?  I have a PowerBook G4 with Leopard that I am trying to get PyCharm to work with, but it will not start and only tells me "no compatible version of Java 1.6 is available."  Has anybody been able to successfully get PyCharm to work on it, or is running it on a PowerPC a lost cause?

This is not a matter with PyCharm.

Native JDK6 is available on 64-bit Macs only - the error is quite clear.

You could try openjdk7 soylatte build:

Of course there's no guarantee it'll work.

Hello Jonathan,

PyCharm requires Java 1.6, which is only available on Intel PCs. SoyLatte

doesn't include an implementation of Swing which is necessary to run PyCharm.

Dmitry:

AFAIK SoyLatte provides a Swing implementation, even though it's X11 based and not native. Does PyCharm absolutely require a native implementation?

Hello Alan,

You're welcome to give it a try; it's certainly not a supported configuration.

I tried PyCharm with SoyLatte, but I got a ton of errors about Swing.

I'm going to chalk this one up as not possible on my PowerBook.  No worries, though, it works on my desktop just fine.

Thanks for the input guys.
