I'm running Confluence on Archlinux.
And more often than not, I get this problem when trying to boot up confluence (with Oracle JDK):

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007ff241f2993a, pid=8832, tid=140679724164864
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_77-b03) (build 1.8.0_77-b03)
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.77-b03 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C [] Java_sun_awt_FcFontManager_getFontPathNative+0x1aa
# Core dump written. Default location: /opt/atlassian/confluence/core or core.8832

I kinda was able to get it running in the past, with downgrading Confluence I think. But now I'm stuck again with this problem. I tried various Oracle JDK versions.
OpenJDK does sorta work, in terms that it doesn't SIGSEGV and crash. It does however result in frontend-problems. 
Google doesn't offer much help :S

Any ideas would be highly appreciated. Thank you

I remembered now, that it was a problem with glibc, or glib2 or whatnot.. I tried downgrading without success. Eventually I created a docker container with CentOS to get rid of this problem another way.
