This question already has an answer here:
This is surely not a new issue, but I can't resolve it using the questions already present:
The launcher said there was an update available, so I upgraded it. Now I am getting this Java error:
Minecraft has crashed! ---------------------- Minecraft has stopped running because it encountered a problem. --- BEGIN ERROR REPORT 7cf3a456 -------- Generated 5/1/19 8:02 PM Minecraft: Minecraft 1.2.5 OS: Linux (amd64) version 4.15.0-48-generic Java: 1.8.0_191, Oracle Corporation VM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (mixed mode), Oracle Corporation LWJGL: 2.9.0 OpenGL: AMD CEDAR (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.15.0-48-generic, LLVM 6.0.0) version 3.0 Mesa 18.0.5, X.Org java.lang.NullPointerException at java.io.Reader.<init>(Reader.java:78) at java.io.InputStreamReader.<init>(InputStreamReader.java:97) at adn.a(SourceFile:62) at adn.a(SourceFile:99) at net.minecraft.client.Minecraft.a(SourceFile:262) at net.minecraft.client.Minecraft.run(SourceFile:657) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748) --- END ERROR REPORT 596c040e ----------
Curiously, the launcher can start the version 1.14 just fine (in demo mode, because money is tight!) but v1.2.5 (the latest full non-demo version) gives the above error. So something got messed up, but I can't determine what that is - so I can't fix it.
- This was from v2.1.1321 to v2.1.1676.
- running on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS
using OpenJDK 1.8, here is the "java -version" output:
openjdk version "1.8.0_191"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1-b12)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode)
Nothing is logged into
/var/log/syslogso it's not Java itself that crashes.
- I can't find any
hs_err_pid*.logthat would yield more hints.
- There's no log files in
~/.minecraftthat cover this time frame.
