Hello Gerard,

I found this forum thread http://forum.soapui.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7534.
Could you try the suggestion in the third post?
I hope this will help.

cheers

I tried to install ia32-libs, but this package was not found.
However I got the suggestion to install ia32-libs-multiarch.
Which I did, but the error message installing BEAM remained the same.
Is there something else I could try?

Here (http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/18/linux-installer-aborts-complaining-about-bitness-jvm-what) I found the suggestion to install Java from Oracle first.

Maybe this helps

Hello Marco

I removed the open source java and installed the java from Oracle.
Unfortunately, it did not help, still getting the same error message.
Do you have other suggestions to solve or debug the problem?

Is it possible that I use the wrong unpack200 program?

gerard@gerard-Aspire-V3-771:~$ locate unpack200
/etc/alternatives/unpack200
/etc/alternatives/unpack200.1.gz
/usr/bin/unpack200

Which one is used by the beam installer?

HI Gerard,

you are trying to install the 64bit version of BEAM. Do you have a 64 bit operating version ?
What's the output of "uname -m" ?

If you already have Java installed you also could used the unix installer. It does not bring it's own JRE but uses the system JRE.

Best regards
Marco

The output of uname -m is: i686

Hi Gerard,

this means you have a 32bit operating system.

"i386", "i486", "i586" and "i686" and "athlon" all mean 32 bit.
"x86_64" means 64 bit (Opteron or Athlon-64). "i686-64" means 32-bit
operation with 64-bit address space (Intel 686 with the new memory
mechanism).

32bit or 64bit

Hello Marco

Tried to install beam using the other install script.

gerard@gerard-Aspire-V3-771:~/Downloads$ ./beam_4.11_unix_installer.sh
Starting Installer ...
gerard@gerard-Aspire-V3-771:~/Downloads$ visat

Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

Object heap? Can you help me?

Hello Gerard,

Because Java needs an upper limit the BEAM installer tries
to find a good value for how much memory to use.
We normally use 50% of the available memory and 1300 MB on 32 bit systems.

But the decision if this an 32 bit system ha not worked properly with your generic unix installer.
To fix this you can manually change this limit in the *.sh files and the visat.vmoptions file inside
the "bin" directory of your BEAM installation.

Best regards,
Marco
