Installation under Mac OS 10.8

Has anybody sucessfully installed Fish Eye / Crucible under Mac OS 10.8?

I'm unable to set the JAVA_HOME variable, it always comes back as Undefined Variable in response to the echo $JAVA_HOME command.

There's no .profile file in ~/ in Mac OS 10.8. I created one and added the lines as stated in the installation instructions but the JAVA_HOME variable remains undefined.

I almost daily install FishEye/Crucible test instances on my MBP running OSX 10.7.4.
For me they all run fine without having JAVA_HOME set.

If you still do want to define a JAVA_HOME you can indeed add it to ~/.profile, but the change won't take effect until you either login again, or run "source ~/.profile".

Thanks Rene - I'll give it a shot :)

I got a little bit further...

Once I've run and gone to my wen browser I always get the 'Can't conenct to server' error in Safari. On running the following appears:

FishEye not running? Problem connecting to : Connection refused Connection refused

Firewall is off so it can't be that. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?



Try starting with "./" instead.
This will start FishEye in the terminal window, so you can see what it logs.
Wait for a message like this is displayed:

Server started on :8060 (http) (control port on

and then point your browser to (or another port, as it looks like you changed the configuration).
To stop a FishEye that's started with you just use Control-C.

That did the trick, thank you. I was able to see that the path to the config file wasn't found. Fixed that :) I dont' suppose you've ever connected Crucible to any of the GIT repositories on

It should be fairly straightforward to connect Crucible to an Assembla Git repository. You will need to generate a key pair for ssh and upload the public key to assembla.

I just tried it and I only had to change the label generated by Crucible to make it shorter due to the limitation for the key on Assembla. The screenshot below shows where the magic happens;

Thanks for the help :)

Still not connecting :( When I run Test Connection it fails with the following:

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it, I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to this stuff. Key upload seemed to be ok, I truncated the key as you advised and Assembla accepted it but when I run Test Connection I get the follwing:

Fisheye is using '/usr/bin/ssh' to authenticate with SSH authenticated repositories.

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

I just ran into the same problem on OS 10.8, with Java not being installed. Actually I had run 'atlas-package', and it couldn't find my java. After putzing around trying to find the java bin, I ran java -version and that prompted a download of the JDK.

I guess Apple's trying to outsmart itself - basically, just go to a command line and enter the command 'java' to start a download of the JDK.
