Java Globe Animation samples fail to run on certain Linux operating systems


Globe Animation Java samples fail to run on certain Linux operating systems. This has been seen after updating GNOME.


The crash is occurring because of a symbol conflict between an ArcGIS library and the Linux libz.so library.


The problem typically occurs when logged in locally to the Linux machine.

Using 'rlogin' to re-log into the local machine as a remote user usually avoids the problem.

The planned fix for this problem involves a tighter way of linking the ArcGIS libzn.so library. This prevents ArcGIS internal calls from being intercepted by the Linux operating system.

This fix is planned to be included in a 9.3.1 service pack.
