The other day I received a message from someone who read my last post about I2P. They said it was working fine on their Linux System until they upgraded their Kernel. After they upgraded their Kernel they kept getting error messages on their web browser.

The person claimed they tried everything to fix the problem. But they obviously didn’t if I’m writing this post to show you how to fix the problem.

After 5 minutes accessing his computer I discovered Java was set back to openjava. So I fixed this using Alternatives. Like so.

sudo alternatives --config java

The above outputs something similar to the following.

There are 3 programs which provide ‘java’.

Selection    Command
1           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-
*+ 2           /usr/java/latest/jre/bin/java
3           /usr/java/latest/bin/java

We are then asked to enter a number. In the above example we want /usr/java/latest/bin/java which is the number 3. So we press the 3 key and press enter. After we do this we will restart I2P.

To do this we type the following.

i2prouter stop


i2prouter start

And your all done you should be able to access the I2P network again.

It is also worth noting that if the option you chose doesn’t work try different Alternatives until you find one that does work.
