PyCharm 1.5.3 failed to start

I just downloaded PyCharm 1.5.3 with evaluation licenses and put into /opt/pycharm-1.5.3 and have full write privilege to the directory

However, PyCharm does not start and hangs with a message box saying that: "Fatal error initializing class com.intellij.openapi.fileTypes.FileTypeManager: java.lang.NullPointerException. Complete error stacktrace was written to idea.log. I also attached the idea.log for your reference

Could you please give me some advices about this problem?

Best,

Hello Fonzie,

Are you trying to run PyCharm under a 32-bit or 64-bit JVM? Did you adjust

the default settings in pycharn.vmoptions?

Hi Dmitry,

I am running 64-bit JVM. I have not changed any of the default parameters as I have no idea what they are about.

Hi again,

My PC has dazukofs loaded by default. When I unload this module, PyCharm starts normally.

Do you think dazukofs is the problem in this case? If so, could you elaborate a bit more?

Thanks,

F.

Hello Fonzie,

PyCharm uses memory mapped files to access its indices. On your machine,

it fails to start because its memory mapping operations fail. If the PyCharm

indices are stored on a non-local filesystem, it's possible that the filesystem

implementation doesn't support memory mapping operations.
