April 24, 2007 | 9:53 am

My MAX/MSP/Jitter crashes with "Java Runtime Version 6 Update 1"
Have anybody else similar experience???
I by accident uninstal "Java Runtime Version 5", does anybody know where I can download it???
On Java.com is only possible to download lateast version.
Thanx for help Mira

Thank you Mojo for very quick answer.
But I can’t find Runtime file for download on the page you gave me a link..
I would like install just Runtime because space on disk.
Is there any other chance??

JRE v5.0 update 10 works here:

http://java.sun.com/products/archive/

from there you can get all the old versions if you like – which I do,
since Java 6 sucks for maxMSP, apparently.

Uninstall JRE 6 updt. 1, then download and install JRE v5.
Best of luck.

hi there,

hm, i am running build 1.6.0-b105, works absolutely ok, but only if you specifiy these VM options in your max.java.config.txt:

max.jvm.option -Xincgc
max.jvm.option -Xms64m
max.jvm.option -Xmx256m

otherwise max (at least on windows) crashes definitly on start.

I had the same problem (crash) upon installing the 6 update by mistake, and micha’s fix works (thanks!)!
I still get an error though in the max window upon start-up:

• error: (mxj) unknown option uncomment in max.java.config.txt.

Any idea what this means?

Bests,
Lorenzo

Try doublechecking to make sure you didn’t delete a semicolon somewhere, my edited TXT file with the Java changes is as follows:

; This is the config used by Max when instantiating the JVM ;
; Comments are enclosed within 2 semicolons ;

; The file format is relatively fragile so pay attention ;
; when editing this file !! ;

; some example options one may use ;

; add all jars in /Users/topher/java/lib to the system classpath i.e. immutable classpath ;
; max.system.jar.dir /Users/topher/java/lib;

; add /Users/topher/foo to the system classpath i.e. immutable classpath ;
; max.system.class.dir /Users/topher/foo ;

; these next 2 are typically what you would want to use if you want additional directories ;
; added to your classpath for max ;

; add /Users/topher/myclasses to the dynamic classpath of MXJClassLoader ;
; max.dynamic.class.dir /Users/topher/myclasses ;

; add all jars in /Users/topher/myjars to the dynamic classpath of MXJClassLoader ;
;max.dynamic.jar.dir /Users/topher/myjars ;

; specify some jvm options ;
max.jvm.option -Xincgc
max.jvm.option -Xms64m
max.jvm.option -Xmx256m

; uncomment these options(i.e. remove surrounding semi colons ;
; to cause the JVM to be created ;
; in debug mode and listening for remote debugger connections ;
; on port 8074. This would enable you to interactively debug ;
; your mxj code using JDB or some other debugger which supports ;
; the JDI wire protocol ;

; max.jvm.option -Xdebug ;
; max.jvm.option -Xnoagent ;
; max.jvm.option -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8074,server=y,suspend=n ;
; max.jvm.option -XX:-UseSharedSpaces ;
