I've been doing similar lately. Forte worked fine for me on Mandrake
8.0, jdk 1.3 and
using windowmaker on XFree86 4. When I upgraded to jdk1.4 some netbeans
components of Forte
started to complain. Forte likes to start its own web servers etc, do
you have any conflicting processes running?
Further--- Forte is huge and complicated - too much so for many
undergraduates (and slow even on medium spec machines), JBuilder is
faster however still complicated. So far, the ides which seem to suit
me best are :
1) Netbeans - pure java so same platform works on win and linux
2) BlueJ - a very lightweight simple UML based ide, fine for starter
