JDK6 on Solaris

Got this weird error today on Solaris 5.8.  It could happen to other versions as well.  This is when I switched to JDK6 from JDK5…

UTF ERROR [“../../../src/solaris/npt/utf_md.c”:49]: Failed to complete iconv_open() setup

And here is a quick fix…this may or may not indirectly affect the application you run so use at your own risk.

The Fix:

# cd  /usr/lib/iconv/geniconvtbl/binarytables
# cp “ISO8859-1%ISO646.bt” “UTF-8%646.bt”
# cp “ISO646%ISO8859-1.bt” “646%UTF-8.bt”
