Distributor ID:      Debian
Description:      Debian GNU/Linux 7.7 (wheezy)
Release:      7.7
Codename:      wheezy

Running Minecraft by right clicking Minecraft.jar and choosing to open it with OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime. It starts fine and displays well, but after logging in and choosing to connect to any MineCraft server I get the error:

Internal exception java.lang.runtimeException: unable to access address of buffer

Anyone here know any tricks to fix this?

Minecraft uses the lightweight Java gaming library, which seems to be broken for Java 7 on Linux.  I have Java 6 working.

I installed openjdk-6-jre and ran Minecraft with that, and it worked. But now openjdk-7-jre also works. Not bothering to try to remove openjdk-6-jre to see if openjdk-7-jre fails. Thanks!
