Edgy: System settings -> Sharing is greyed out

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2006-12-30 22:56

Edgy (and apparently Dapper as well) have this rather annoying issue where the "Sharing" screen in System settings (Kubuntu) is greyed out even after entering admin mode, or if you open the fileshare module using kcmshell as root. The fix for this is to just open up your package manager and install the base Samba package which hadn't been installed.

Setting up Samba will be a very annoying procedure otherwise.

Azureus: An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine

Submitted by Druss on Thu, 2006-12-28 23:10

Following my recent adventures with Azureus, I found that Azureus was crashing on a regular basis and often not starting up at all. Running it from the command line gave me an error similar to the following:

An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine

and a lot of mumbo-jumbo following that.

This error has been reported all over the place, including at bugs.sun.com (who decided to close it.. thanks guys! :S). But no apparent solution was being provided anywhere. Azureus was definitely stable when running 1.4.2, although it wasn't exactly performing up to par. So, this was definitely a java compatibility problem.

Linux: Azureus is very slow or not connectable

I installed Ubuntu a few days ago and found that my client, Azureus, which had been performing well thus far on Windows (the previous OS on that box), was, all of a sudden, no longer connectable or providing extremely slow speeds. I tried playing with firewalls and what not, but finally came across the answer when I tried downloading a torrent from OiNK. The torrent failed with an error stating that my version of Java was incompatible with the version of Azureus (2.5) that I was running.
