I just lost a snipe… ‘Unknown error’. It didn’t go through.

Hey Morgan -

I’ve been doing some testing… and actually upgraded one of my computers to test this from Slackware 11.0 to Slackware 12.0 that was recently relesed and that has the Java JRE 1.6 instead of JRE 1.5 and BidWatcher seems to be working fine on that computer without exhibiting the ‘snipe text-box’ problems.

So I found a third-party JRE 1.6 package for Slackware 11.0 on linuxpackages.net and upgraded it on my main computer and now the problems with the snipe text-input-box seem to have cleared up on it as well.

So, it looks like you nailed it. The latest JRE seems to have fixed this problem… finally! Woo Hoo!

I don’t know when Ubuntu will have a JRE 1.6 package available but I’ll bet when they do it will clear up the problem on my Ubuntu boxes as well.

So, looks like this problem is solved as far as I can tell.

Thanks for all your hard work and a great program!!!

Chuck Bell

Yes -

On my Slackware Linux 11.0 box it is:

java version “1.5.0_09”
Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_09-b01)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 1.5.0_09-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

And on my Ubuntu ’Dapper" Linux box it is:

java version “1.5.0_06”
Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-b05)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

Hope this helps -

I have been having the same problem with Bidwatcher for several years. It seems to be intermittant. Sometimes I can enter a snipe amount and sometimes I can’t. Usually I can when or if I just started or restart BidWatcher but only the first time. Sometimes I can minimize the snipe box and remaximize it again and then be able to enter an amount. Sometimes on re-maximizing the snipe input box the amount I entered appears, although it didn’t appear when I was typing it. It is weird.

I’m running Bidwatcher 1.0.1 and java version “1.5.0_09” in Firefox on Slackware Linux and also on Ubuntu Linux. Different versions of Java, Firefox, etc. do not seem to affect the problem.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks,
