Java crashed when running under padsp
Binary package hint: pulseaudio
There is really only one Java-program I use regularly, and that is Cgoban3 (http://
It's very stable, and I've used it for several years without a hitch.
But, after switching to pulseaudio, I found out I have to run java (or "javaws", like in this case) with padsp in order to get any sound.
Here's the message I got on the commandline when java+Cgoban3 just disappeared:
Before the crash, I watched a video in Firefox that uses flash that in turn uses the pulseaudio flashsupport so-file that I have installed on my system (which works perfectly fine, btw).
I don't really think that has anything to do with it, though, since I've watched videos in my browser before without anything strange happening to the sound.
Steps I did to produce the crash (which I'm unable to reproduce, unfortunately):
1. Start Cgoban3
2. Watch a flash-video in Firefox with the pulseaudio flash-support library installed (like this one: http://
3. Return to Cgoban3 and make it produce a sound
4. Everything should disappear
(Java, flash and cgoban3 are about the only non-open source programs I use on my computer, just for the record ;) )
