View Full Version : Can't get past 'Select a Repository' screen on HP-UX

03-17-2006, 05:35 AM
After successfully installing and using the Kettle suite on Windows XP we are moving it to HP-UX, but whenever we launch it we get the initial Kettle splash screen, then the 'Select a repository' screen and it freezes and CPU usage pegs at nearly 100%!! Any ideas??

I ran Pan & Kitchen on HP-UX before on a 1.4.2 JRE (no problems there), but not Spoon.
Perhaps a JRE update is needed or an update of the SWT libs are required, although they should be pretty much the same as the Solaris/Motif versions.

I can do one question to you ? I have other problems with kettle 3.0 on HP UX.11. When I lunch spoon.sh diplay this error
"find: cannot stat ./libswt/hpux
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/swt/widge

I found on forum that say to copy Kettle-3.0.0.GA/libswt/osx in Kettle-3.0.0.GA/libswt/hpux, but doing it and lunching spoon.sh the error dysplyed is another
xception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no swt-carbon-3347 or

The bad news is that support for HP-UX was dropped in version 3. of Eclipse and also SWT.

The good news is that support for HP-UX seems to be re-appearing in version 3.4.
Maybe you can try to download that release:


Extract the file called "swt.jar" and place it in libswt/hpux

That should do the trick, YMMV since it's a milestone SWT version, not a final release!
