I have a brand new VPS on intovps.com, that runs on overvz.
My OS is Linux Ubuntu 12.04 and i needed to install tomcat-solr. By running
sudo apt-get install ca-certificates-java
I was getting the error:
Could not create the Java virtual machine.
By following this link i found that oracle java7 works perfectly on Ubuntu over openvz.
All I needed to do was:
- Remove openjdk
sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
- Add the repository
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/java sudo apt-get update
- Install java7 sdk
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
- Now the tomcat-solr will work as excpected
sudo apt-get install tomcat-solr
Hope it works, good luck to your new server :)
