Mine works fine
Authored by: on Apr 29, '05 09:29:00PM

I am not sure if it is the Java 5.0 PR1 release that fixed it since i have installed it but 1.4 is still the default Java version.

Anyway, works fine on my Tiger.

If you installed the new Java, go to Utilities->Java->JSE 5.0->Java Preferences and select the Java (choose the new version) version you want to use. It's that simple.

There IS a problem...

The error message is that a configuration file (jvm.cfg) is corrupt. The message is not quite correct. The problem is one of permissions.

The fix:

sudo chmod -R a+rX /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework

(All on one line. Note the permissions consists of a lower case 'a', a plus sign, a lower case 'r', and an upper case 'X'.)

If you want to set up Java 1.5 to be your default java when you enter the "java" command, you need to follow the instructions on Apple's page where the download is made available. There's a script that does all the magic that needs to be done. I don't have the web page handy right now, or I'd add either the script name or a pointer to the URL... it should be easy enough to figure out, though.
