Can't install phpStorm on Fedora 21 (Alpha)

Hi,

I'm trying to install phpStorm on Fedora 21 Alpha w. Gnome 3.14.
I have just downloaded the latest stable release. Unfortunately after following all the instructions and launching ./phpstorm.sh the following exception appears on the terminal:



OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=350m; support was removed in 8.0

Any hints or solutions?

this exception usually means that no license information has been found  in <current user home>/.WebIde8 folder and no GUI environment  exists so that PHPStorm can't open the License dialog to let you set the  licensing options... Please make sure to run it from the X Server session (Gnome, KDE, etc).
Also I'd suggest using Oracle JDK instead of Open JDK - the latter doesn't always come with needed graphical libraries, causing similar problems
