just a friendly reminder even though this installs packages of jdk < 12 it will still attempt to use the default one which may be set to 12 like in my case.

You need to use sudo archlinux-java status and sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk to figure out what you have and set something lower than 12 as default before attempting to install.

There is no tag for 0.6.2, only 0.6.1

I was able to compile it with openjdk-9 installed by changing the cmake line of the install script to include "-DJAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk"

@luso58: Try this:

archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre

from (you may need to do "archlinux-java status" first to see available environments)

I have openJDK 7, 8 and 9 installed on my system, and multimc refuses to build, because of incompatibility with java 9.

I was running Ubuntu for awhile, and the official client appears to drop data into ~/.local/share/multimc instead of ~/.local/share/multimc5

The 0.5.1-4 version ONLY has this change.

Everything else remains the same.

For those using Ubuntu and the official multimc client this will (hopefully) reduce the duplication in their home directories.

For those that want to run multimc with the previous default directory, use: [PREVIOUS_DATA_DIR]

I had the following installed:

java-environment-common 2-2
java-runtime-common 2-2
jdk7-openjdk 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre7-openjdk 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre7-openjdk-headless 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre8-openjdk 8.u121-1
jre8-openjdk-headless 8.u121-1

Thanks for including the patch! That was damn fast.

I have now updated this package with the upstream patch.

As far as jdk8-openjdk goes for building, did you have another version installed, and if so, what was it?

I have attempted to force jdk8 or later with java-environment>=8, so jdk8-openjdk should be installed for the build phase.

ainola commented on 2017-05-29 23:23

Apparently this doesn't compile with GCC 7. This has been fixed upstream in their develop branch. Consider adding this patch:

Relevant bug report:

ainola commented on 2017-05-29 23:18

jdk8-openjdk was not pulled in as a hard dep, so I got the same Cmake errors as Aurelio until I installed the package manually.

vorpalblade commented on 2017-02-12 23:29

I have just updated this package to version 0.5.1.

There was NOT a bump to the version in the MultiMC repository even though there was a release.

The version number is under application/CMakeLists.txt for those who are wondering.
