Description dkarr 2001-12-12 20:17:40 UTC
I had 3.2.1 installed.  I proceeded to install the new 3.3 release.  I was
prompted to uninstall the 3.2.1 installation, and I confirmed that.  I later was
asked whether I wanted to (paraphrased) "use the old files in the new
installation", and I chose not to.

When I first brought up 3.3, I tried to browse through the example files, and I
noticed some considerable "screen scrozzling".  I first tried to open the README
file of one of the sample projects, and it looked like I got about a 3-pixel
wide editor window, just to the right of the file explorer.  I then tried
exploring through other files, and got more "screen turds".

At this point, I decided to exit and reboot my system.

After rebooting and bringing up NB, I got the main window, and three dialogs:

1. Resource "lib/openide-nodes.jar" could not be found and will not be mounted.
2. Resource "lib/openide-util.jar" could not be found and will not be mounted.

(I believe the previous two also appeared the first time I started NB 3.3.)

3. A java.lang.NullPointerException exception has occurred ...

The stack trace from the NPE is in an attachment.  In addition, as requested in
the exception message, the contents of the "ide.log" file is also attached.

Reassigning to remotefs module.

The NPE is thrown from those code. 

The other messages (openide-util, openide-node not mounted should be

I'm not sure whether it needs also update or rebuild again if you have
used it that way.
