How to get RubyMine working well on Ubuntu 8.10

For me RubyMine on Ubuntu 8.10 is unusable unless these two changes are made.

1. Performace on Ubuntu 8.10. Scrolling and other editing task are excruciatingly slow to the point of being unusable

Solution:

Put option "AccelMethod" "XAA"into the Device section of /etc/x11/xorg.conf.


Section "Device"
        Identifier "Configured Video Device"
        Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"
EndSection

reboot? not sure do itjust in case.

2. JVM SIGSEGV (coredump) on Ubunto 8.10 and maybe others

sudo apt-get remove libc6-i686

I have also seen it as  sudo apt-get remove libc6-i68

If something has a dependency on this library then there might possibly be a problem.
