Java Web Start a breeze?

I've been trying to get Java web start working on Breezy, but no dice...

srichand@krypton:~$ javaws
Java Web Start splash screen process exiting .....
Splash: sysCreateListenerSocket failed: No such file or directory

dude, you probably have an incompatible version of JRE or even worse, you may be running on GCJ!!!

Nope. I have SUN JRE 1.5 update 5 running quite well. I use Limewire with the same JRE without an problems whatsoever.

Are you running on an IPv6 network? I was getting the same error when I didn't have an IPv4 localhost ( defined. When I added it the problem went away.

It is indeed because was not up. I'm running gentoo but my localhost network start script is broken; a simple "ifconfig lo up" resolves the error.
