I posted in bugs@ last week about this same problem. When Sun
released 1.4.2_12 for linux, I noticed the same error, but
1.4.2_11 works fine. I've just tried all the 1.5.0 linux
versions available from Sun but they all do the same coredump.
(They work for me on linux, however.)
$ ulimit -d
So, Petr, for the moment the answer to your question is 'no'
for java 1.5.0, and 'yes' for 1.4.2_11 (and earlier).
Earlier linux java versions are available here:
The wip/jdk14 does work on DragonFly, but at the moment is
a pain to compile unless you can get the 1.4.2_11 linux
binaries someplace (I don't see them on the Sun servers
right now.) I have the files here if you need me to
upload them somewhere.
