While trying to install NetBeans 6.0 beta 2 on a newly installed Ubuntu 7.10 (64-bit) the installation window, that
appears right after starting the install script, is blank. Tried starting the script both as root (sudo) and as myself
with the same result.
Script gives the following output in the terminal windows:
cfelde@laptop:~/Diverse_installasjonsfiler$ sudo ./netbeans-6.0beta2-linux.sh
[sudo] password for cfelde:

Using the following Java version (32-bit):
cfelde@laptop:~/Diverse_installasjonsfiler$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_03"

Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)
No workaround found..

Problem looks like it's fixed when using the 64-bit version of Java.
