[Guide] Launch Bigly BT with proper Java Version

Post by yanol »


Since there is a problem with biglyBT, which depends on java, that will make DNS leaks( see: http://i2peek-a-boo.i2p/bigly.html ) i will share the way i found to launch properly the program, using the corresponding java version.

You should use java 8 for launch this program, since other versions can cause this DNS trouble.
For this, you should grab a java 8 version(it could be openjdk) and then launch the program in this way:

Code: Select all

PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/bin/:$PATH biglybt
where '/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/bin/' is the place in where the 'java' binary' is present.
Other way could be to point the java library directly and then launch the program (without using path)

For windows i guess it should be the same way, downloading/installing a java 8 version, then pointing java before launching the program.


The explanation why Java 8 version should be used can be found in this links:
