gui bug?

I started jnode 0.2.3 (iso) using vmware on windows xp. Everything seemed fine, and when the commandline came up, I ran startawt, as per usual. The graphics changed (blue-green background) and the cursor came up, but after waiting a long time nothing else came up (no buttons, windows, etc.)

When I finally got back to the console (or was it the debug console?) I saw the following stack trace:

Good work and thanks for your help,

Known problem

If you get that empty dekstop you can return to the console with alt-f12 and try it again. This is a bug waiting for a fix.
I've never noticed that exception yet though.


PS. we are on irc....


Okay this may have been related to a low RAM specification (I used a .vmx file from the previous release).

How do I get the font to look like in the screenshots? Couldn't find mention of that in the forums.

Set the jnode.font.renderer to new before starting the gui for the first time:

set jnode.font.renderer new
