I upgraded my linux OS today to Fedora 11 and now moneydance won't start. I've made sure I have the latest version, reinstalled (twice - second time deleting the old Moneydance directory first). I've done a cut & paste of the contents of errlog.txt below (changed the license key, of course - I've already checked to see if it's valid and it is):

    Given where the exception is being thrown from it seems likely that there is a problem with your java run time installation. Are you running the version of java that came with the Moneydance download. Moneydance comes with 32bit java and your error log is report that you are running on a 64bit system. I would suggest instaling the version of Moneydance that does not come with java and reinstall the latest version of java from sun for you set up.

    Also are you running this directly from the terminal or are you ssh/su/sudo'ing and maybe not having permission to connect to the X server.

    That fixed it! And yes, I was logged in directly to the workstation
    under my usual id.
