Installation Problem on Linux

Postby groutr » Sat Jul 21, 2012 4:18 pm

Hi,

I am using ArchLinux 64-bit with openjdk6 installed.
When trying to install the FamilySearch Indexing program, I get the following output.

Unpacking JRE ...
Preparing JRE ...
Indexing_unix_3_13_1.sh: line 208: bin/unpack200: No such file or directory
Error unpacking jar files. The architecture or bitness (32/64)
of the bundled JVM might not match your machine.

Some idea of what is going would be appreciated. I want to start indexing with my ward, can't seem to install the indexing program.

Thanks
Ryan

The error message say that you are trying to install a 32 bit Java Virtual Machine (JVM) into 64 bit system (Machine AND Operating System).
The message above say that FSI try to install it. So you need to install a 64 bit FSI or FSI without JRE.
I've install it into Ubuntu 64-bit and it works. Because this happen several months ago, I don't remember if there is a FSI installer without JRE (saying you have already installed) or if there's a 64 bit installer.

Hi,

I was able to install family search after doing something (not sure what though). FamilySearch Indexing refuses to start. I've tried OpenJDK 6/7 and Oracle's JRE/JDK 6. FSI simply refuses to start. This happens with FSI 3.13 and 3.14.

Is there an alternative way to start FSI without clicking on the icon on my desktop? I'd really like to start indexing, but I am getting a little frustrated by FSI apparent lack of support for Linux 64bit. I would post an error message if FSI were nice enough to give me one.

You can find bash file in: {honme}/.FamilySearchIndexing/indexingfamilysearch.org
indexing is the name of program, of course.

I erased my HD so I will install again FSI into my Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits.
I'll tell you as it went.

Download Indexing_unix_3_15_1.sh
mariano@mariano-Aspire-5551:~$ cd Scaricati
mariano@mariano-Aspire-5551:~/Scaricati$ ls *.sh
Indexing_unix_3_15_1.sh
mariano@mariano-Aspire-5551:~/Scaricati$ sh Indexing*.sh

Then the installation window appear.
The installation went good. Only "impossible to create the icon on the Desktop (this is ok, I've not a Desktop)!
Then Indexing starts.
No problem at all.
Close the program.
Start it again from Unity menu.
It starts normaly.
No problem for me!

This is what I get with "uname -a" command
Linux mariano-Aspire-5551 3.2.0-32-generic #51-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 26 21:33:09 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I've no Java installed.

Indexing does require Java, albeit a couple updates back, and that is so the indexing software development team can iron out any issues before moving to the next one.

I've heard though that Indexing will become browser-based next year, so the software installs will become a thing of the past with that. Other interesting new features and possibilities will follow after that.

That's very good news indeed but it doesn't help us that have current systems that aren't behind.

This is true, infact: Unpacking JRE .... Preparing JRE means Java Runtime Environment installation!
