Hello All:

I am running Ubuntu 14.04LTS on an HP 15 laptop Quadcore. All is currently working. But now I also want to run websdr which requires the Sun versions of java. Will this break MPIDE?

What version of java is required for MPIDE?

I currently have installed:

~$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_79"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.6) (7u79-2.5.6-0ubuntu1.14.04.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

Thanks, James

It certainly works fine with Sun Java 1.8.0_51

If you want to use a specific version of Java at any time you can edit the file "mpide" which is just a shell script and add an absolute path to the java command in the last line.

Thanks for the info. I went ahead and installed Sun java8.

The other app is working fine now.
