I installed Diablo and removed the linux port (see below)

I did not have that defined and it was using the LINUX one.  Maybe as  
it had been installed ages ago for something else? Anyway, I removed  
that port and now it tries to use Diablo.   However, the jdk does not  
build since diablo java command will not run.

If I run it at the command line I get:

# /usr/public/diablo-jdk1.5.0/bin/java -version
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
Could not create the Java virtual machine.

# /usr/public/diablo-jdk1.5.0/bin/java -version -client
java version "1.5.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build diablo-1.5.0- 
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build diablo-1.5.0_07-b01, mixed mode)

Since -server is the default the java errors out and the jdk build  
seems to think that it does not have a java to use.  I am not sure  
what is going on here and my Google foo is not too good with this sort  
of thing.

(Yes it needs to be updated -- in production and hard to schedule  
around a lot of users with diverse needs but in the works)
