Red5 application installer doesn't like IcedTea

Posted on 2009-04-17
Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I've gotten Red5 0.8RC2 installed and running on a Fedora 8 server, which uses IcedTea 1.7.0 for Java.  But when I load the installer page in a browser, all versions of all the demo applications give this error:

"Version Mismatch: The application version selected does not match the servers java version, please try again"

I assume that Red5 isn't detecting IcedTea's supported Java version properly.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You need to make sure your apps are a lower or equal Java version to the VM

    They are.  IcedTea 1.7 provides a virtual machine for Java 6.  All of the Red5 demo applications come in both Java 5 and 6 flavors.  But all of them give version conflicts, so I assume there's a problem with the version detection.

    Make sure any additional version settings you might need are correct

    Replace IcedTea with a standard Java.  There are many problems with the IcedTea JVM and other applications.  See this thread for more discussion:

    Lots of our clients have had problems with it also, we recommend not using it.
