Indexing with Linux

Postby fletch_1971-p40 » Wed Apr 04, 2007 8:24 pm

HI all-

I use Linux at home, and I was thrilled when I read that I could help with the indexing at home, so I signed up and was able to index several pages of records. However, the next day, I was not allowed to get back to indexing. I even tried to work offline and it gave me a list of errors that looked Java related.

I really would love to help index, and I would love to support FamilySearch in this way, can someone help me figure out how to get back indexing? Should I just try to revolunteer?

Thanks!
Kate

Hi Tom-

Thanks! Here is the error message I get when I hit work offline, after I get a message indicating that the server is unavailable:

I'm not in the Family History department so I can't comment on the error you are getting but from the looks of it, I'd try downloading the program again. By posting your error info, I thought it would help the FH guys track down the problem.

linux indexing

I don't know what's causing your particular error, but I would be interested in knowing what the problem was when you get it resolved. I have been able to do indexing on linux, though, so it is definitely possible.

HI Doug-

What version of Java are you running? I had it working on Opera, and I can't get it to work on Firefox at all.
I'd love to hear any ideas. :)

Hi Tom-

I've tried rebooting my computer, installing Java again, Installing the FamilySearch Indexing programs, changing my password several times.

I think the only thing we haven't done is uninstall Java and reinstall it.

Thanks guys. :)

I believe I had a similar error once. Try deleting the Java Web Start cache I believe the directory would be

Code: Select all

~/.java/deployment/cache/javaws


If I remember correctly the problem came from going into offline mode. So I quit doing that and the indexing has worked pretty good since then.

Be warned it was a while ago I tried all this and any or all of it could be wrong.

Hi Jonathan-

Thanks, I will definitely try that. :)

ETA: It worked! Thank you so much. :) We are running Java 1.6 update 1

installation instructions?

Postby jbryan-p40 » Mon Apr 16, 2007 4:40 pm

Can anyone give me some general instructions on how to get indexing installed on linux? I have java installed and have downloaded the indexing instalation file. I have installed it on a windows machine so I have the unpacked files available too. How do I go about getting it to run? I am fairly good with linux so general instructions should be sufficient.

Thanks

From a command line run the following command. The link below came from the "Install Now" button on the front page of familysearchindexing.org.

Code: Select all

javaws http://familysearchindexing.org/iis-apps/apps/iude.jnlp


In the future you can run the program with the following command line.

Code: Select all

javaws -viewer
