Topic: Arduino unexpectedly quits @ every upload (Read 2210 times) previous topic - next topic


Been using arduino successfully for about 2 years.  I'm also about 80% done building a Reprap Mendel.

In an attempt to get my reprap software working in OSX i've been making several changes to my computer.  I installed Windows 7 in "Parallels" and upgrades Java to SE 6 in Windows and my Snow Leopard.  Since I've done that, my arduino software quits every time I upload a sketch.  I tried to connect a board already setup to do serial.print diagnostic information on boot up of the chip, and when plugged in the serial monitor of my arduino sees the text it spits out.  When I upload a new sketch it quits.  I had been using Arduino release 21, I just downloaded release 22, which didn't help.  I re-installed the FTDI package that came with the new release, which also didn't fix the issue.

I found this post from the old forum site:
that somewhat covers the topic.  I saw that this problem was resolved with java preferences, but mine are already: 1st SE 6 64, 2nd SE 6 32.  Not sure what to do to progress from here. 

Any suggestions? 


The RepRap host software installs these under /Library/Java/Extensions:


Deleting these or moving them aside gets Arduino uploads working again. I'd assume that breaks the RepRap software (still waiting for parts here so haven't checked) but putting those files back would probably fix it.

There's bound to be a cleaner solution - either fixing the RepRap installer to use its own local copies of the libraries or messing with the reprap shell script that sets the Java class paths etc.
