Description Sven Gothel 2013-12-24 00:04:38 CET
Reported here:

I tested Java applets on Mac OS X 10.8.5 with Java 7.
When I use JOGL v2.0-rc11 or earlier, applets using JOGL start successfully.
However, if I use JOGL from v2.0.2-rc12 to the latest v2.1.3, applets fail to start
with message 'jogamp.org quit unexpectedly while using the libjvm.dylib plug-in.'
The problem details is as below.

I updated my Mac to OS 10.9.1, but the problem is not solved.
Any help will be appreciated.

Model: MacBook5,2, BootROM MB52.0088.B06, 2 processors, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.13 GHz, 2 GB, SMC 1.38f5
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, PCI, 256 MB 

Browsers I used are safari 7.0.1 and firefox 26.0.


Tested on JVM 7u45 on a NVidia GT 650M (retina) and GT 320M (mini).

I reproduced a sporadic crash like yours
after testing many times on GT 320M (mini) ..

Me using:

I get a different crash trace @ main-Animator:
  - gldUpdateDispatch
  - gleDoDrawDispatchCoreGL3
  - glDrawArrays

.. same exception type and code.

This never occurred on the GT 650M (retina).

  - Only at Firefox/Safari startup and 1st applet, very rare.
  - After Applet launched successfully all subsequent tests work fine
  - Relaunching firefox after shutdown the same and java/applet
    it also launches properly.

Hi, I'm the guy who posted <http://forum.jogamp.org/JVM-crash-with-GLWindow-create-caps-on-OSX-10-9-1-td4031108.html>

I seem to get similar problem on my mac as well, although I'm not running the applet but directly compiling .java and executing .class file.
In my case JVM crashed 100% with GLWindow.create() on versions >2.0.2-rc12.

It seems like a general bug in Newt after rc11, since GLCanvas and stuff works.

Comment 2 Sven Gothel 2014-01-22 09:37:33 CET
Seems like an issue w/ Oracle's 7u45 plugin, 
didn't occur on 7u51 anymore.
