    Most of the problems we've had with running WBI under Linux have been due to the

    JVM. My first guess would be that the JDK 1.2 that you are using has some bugs.

    We have successfully run WBI under the following configurations:
    Stampede Linux 0.89 using JDK1.1.6 from Blackdown
    (I used the glibc-based version;
    JDK1.1.7 did not work when I tried it in March;
    JDK1.2 was also very buggy at the time)
    Red Hat Linux 6.0 using JDK1.1.7 v3 from Blackdown
    (again using the glibc-based version)
    Red Hat Linux 6.0 using JDK1.1.6 from IBM

    The Blackdown JDK can be downloaded from and the IBM
    JDK can be downloaded from

    Please try using one of these earlier (and hopefully more reliable) JVMs and let

    us know how it works out.
