Running on Linux x86_64

I now have access to Opteron based hardware and I am running an x86_64 Linux on it. The guys at Blackdown have just recently released a 64-bit JDK, read more at
http://www.blackdown.org/java-linux/java2-status/jdk1.4-status.html

SUN have also announced that they will release 1.5 on this platform (and it seems this release will include the Blackdown work).

Anyways, I could test running Aurora on this platform, if there is a way to get IDEA to accept running on the JDK version release by Blackdown. Currently, this release is called 1.4.2-rc1 (which is based on 1.4.2_03 so it shouldn't be that much incompatability in that end).

You want to pass -Didea.no.jdk.check=true to the IDEA executable (by modifying idea.sh).

I think maybe this option should be in the default idea.sh file, but commented out, with an explanation. It's a pretty commonly asked question.

oops, sorry for the noise - it was late and I felt a bit too lazy to go through the forum as I should have. Thanks for the help though.

There is no info on this option in the distribution - maybe a good thing to include in Install.txt?
