I seem to be surrounded by problems these days. Zend has announced that Zend Studio 7 is now in Beta, so I figured I’d go give it a try since I was having so many problems with Eclipse being sluggish and overall a piece of junk. Yes, I know Zend Studio 7 is based on Eclipse, but I can’t help but think that the slowness is a part of the PDT plugin I use for PHP development.
I’m running Gentoo Linux AMD64 on a dual-screen monitor utilizing Xinerama. I ran into a problem when trying to start the installer for Zend Studio.
Some initial Googling indicated that I needed to install i386 compatible libraries. The odd thing about it was I had done so - probably several months ago in fact. However, I ultimately managed to find the temporary solution on the Sun web site, in that this was a Java bug relating to Xinerama. Basically, try running the installer on screen 0:0 instead of 0:1.
