Help jedit

Hi,

i was hoping (maliciously enough) if someone has also bumped into this
problem. apologies in advance; this isn’t a rails/ruby question, but as
i am a newbie developing in RoR and switching to Linux correspondingly,
i was referenced to use Jedit as the prefferable editor for rails/ruby.
but i have been having some trouble installing it - - i was wondering if
anyone had bumped into problems installing this editor, always recieving
this message:

GC Warning: Out of Memory! Returning NIL!
Exception in thread “main” GC Warning: Out of Memory! Returning NIL!

(i’ve installed the right java platform on the new linux (ubuntu) i
have, but i can’t really figure out why this isn’t working!

sorry for posting this here, but if there is anything anyone can help me
with(even a reference to some other place with a lead), i would be most
grateful…

much thanks.

i installed jEdit the other day (on Dapper Ubuntu) without this issue.
There’s a pretty good walk-through here: http://rubyjedit.org/

Though, there is a problem with the Ruby addon and jEdit 4.3pre5 - the
code completion won’t work. The package maintaner knows this and is
working on it.

Aside from the code completion (which would be nice), there are some
great abbreviations for jEdit that make it as slick (slicker?) than

I dunno what comprises the “right” java platform, but my guess is you
have remnants of gcj still stuck on your ubuntu installation. My
experience at least is that many java programs don’t really LIKE gcj. I
suggest going with JDK/JRE from sun (apt-get install sun-j2dk1.5??). I
know that at least Radrails (http://www.radrails.org - a very good
multiplatform Rails/Ruby IDE based on eclipse) really prefers the sun
JDK. Both performance- and compatibility-wise.

I’ll second this. I recently set up a kubuntu system and jedit wouldn’t
run at all until I switched to the Sun JRE.
