Subsonic not finding java's jaxb on fresh Raspbian Buster in

Postby glucenag » Tue Apr 14, 2020 6:59 am

I love my Subsonic install on my Raspberry Pi 3. Just installed Buster (was running Stretch but I freshly installed Buster) and would like Subsonic back! Any help appreciated :-)


**In brief:** fresh Buster install on a Raspberry Pi 3, usual Subsonic install steps followed and Subsonic throws this error in its log:
Code: Select all
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/JAXBException
:


**Details:** I installed Subsonic following [this][1] and in particular installed openjdk-8-jre. Since Buster comes with java 11 by default and I was getting the previously mentionned error in the log, I uninstalled all four java 11 packages (jdk, `dk-headless, jre and jre-headless that is).
Code: Select all
java -version
says java 8 is correctly installed, returning

Code: Select all
openjdk version "1.8.0_212"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_212-8u212-b01-1+rpi1-b01)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 25.212-b01, mixed mode)


I believe Subsonic requires java 8. I have also been reading that java 8 is no longer supported in Buster, but as per the above I seem to do just fine ?

In any case, here is the meat: Subsonic starts and stops fine, and
Code: Select all
sudo systemctl status subsonic
is not suspicious at all, returning

Code: Select all

which I believe is OK. However, at http://localhost:4040 I get:

HTTP ERROR: 503

SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE

I thus grep'ed Subsonic's log for errors and got a bunch of

Code: Select all
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/JAXBException


I googled that but nothing is too Subsonic specific. I found [this][2] which seems relevant, but I'm not sure I understand the accepted answer. It seems this is for manually running some code involving java, but in my case I only need Subsonic to work. I thus fail to understand how to apply the possible fixes for java 8 mentionned in there in my case.

**More information:**

- I did add `JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-armhf` to `/etc/environment`
-
Code: Select all
sudo apt list --installed | grep openjdk
returns

Code: Select all

**Bottom line:** Subsonic clearly fails to work because of a java-related issue. If java 8 is indeed installed correctly (and supported!) on my Raspberry Pi 3 running Buster, then I would only need a way of adapting / understanding the fix [here][2]. Any other way of making Subsonic work would open the doors of Heaven for me, folks!

I can't believe I am the only one who tried to install Subsonic on a RPi3 running the new Buster ? :cry: :?: :|

I'm running Subsonic on an Odroid HC2 (both are armhf as I know) with Ubuntu 18.04. Have a read through this thread http://forum.subsonic.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17957&start=30

Hey there. Thanks for reacting but I guess this is not really the same ? I read that thread too but did not find it of any use - was there something specific you'd say I missed ?

I'm running Oracle's JVM, not OpenJDK, may be worth a try.

Wait: are you telling me you are running Oracle's JVM as in "I'm running it *and* Subsonic works" ? If so, what machine are you on ?

EDIT: sorry, did not see you are the same person as the reply above. Thanks, I'll maybe give a go, but it seems installing Oracle's JVM in Buster is a little mess. Before diving into that I would have love to know if there is a less hacky solution.

@urbexophil, no, I haven't found a solution yet. Be sure I'll post it here if I do.
