Issues with processing on 64bit (java)

Anyone running processing (http://processing.org) on a 64bit machine?
I'm having some issues getting it running, works fine on my 32bit system though.

My error is:

./processing: line 100: /home/action-owl/dev/processing/processing-1.0.9/java/bin/java: No such file or directory

The file does exist, and it's executable, the processing forums have been a bit quiet lately.

Thanks

Re: Issues with processing on 64bit (java)

Did you compile it yourself or use their binaries?  You may have to compile it yourself to get it to work.  I'm not entirely sure why, but some java programs don't work natively on 64-bit; Google Web Toolkit, for example.

I'm using their binaries which worked on Fedora 11 & 12 64bit

Re: Issues with processing on 64bit (java)

Yeah but Fedora provides 32-bit compatibility libs; Arch doesn't.  Actually now that I look at the error, it seems processing is supplying it's own java VM, which is almost certainly a 32-bit executable.  If you change line 100 of that script to just execute "java", not whatever they're using (could be ./java/bin/java or something), it may work.

Today had this issue and solved it. Looking at /usr/bin/processing found out that you have to symlink /usr/bin/java to /usr/share/processing/java/bin/java smile.

Three years on, I would not expect a response.  Never-the-less, thanks for the feedback.

This doesn't seem to work for me, but maybe I'm doing it wrongly... Is this close to what you meant?:

 sudo ln -s /usr/bin/java /usr/share/processing/java/bin/java
