When starting the Vortex OpenSplice launchner on Ubuntu 16.04 (linux kernel 4.8.0-56) a segmentation fault is seen.
Why does the Vortex OpenSplice launcher fail with a segmentation fault
The reason you are seeing a segmentation fault when starting the launcher on Ubuntu 16.04 (linux kernel 4.8.0-56) is because there is a Java Plugin issue on this particular kernel update. You may run into this problem after updating the linux kernel. Everything was running fine prior to this.
More information about the problem and possible later fixes to the issue can be found on the Ubuntu forum.
How can I workaround this problem?
To workaround the issue you can increase the JVM max stack size when you are starting JAVA. This can be done by setting the JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS environment variable:
You will need to restart the Launcher after setting this variable.
Later releases of Ubuntu may contain a fix for this issue.
