yEd freezes at startup

0 votes
yEd hangs at startup. The progress bar in the splash window is about 90% full and it reads:

"Enabling module Yed"

I use the Oracle sdk version on a linux machine of the following kind:

Linux coen 3.0.6-gentoo #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Nov 6 14:53:50 CET 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5630 @ 2.53GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I forgot to mention that I tested this with yEd 3.6 and 3.8 and both freeze.

an strace halts at

rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {0x43e700, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x7f7bffff2b80}, {SIG_DFL, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x7f7bffff2b80}, 8) = 0

So, it waits for something. I guess it's some concurrency bug.

Try deleting the .yEd profile directory in your home directory.

If that does not help, how did you start yEd? Script? With "java -jar /path/to/yed/yed.jar"? Double-click?

Deleting the .yEd directory solved the problem.

Thank you very much.
