So I have been skipping SRMs lately these months because... I cannot launch the Arena. There are at least two problems that I have been experiencing.
1. Cannot launch the Arena before deleting cache
This is quite annoying. Before I can launch the Arena, I have to delete the Arena cache first using the commans "javaws -viewer". If I don't do that, javaws gives me this error message: application_error.png. Here are the information provided after I click "Details": launch_file.png, exception.png, wrapped_exception.png.
I think this has happened for like 1 year. I don't remember I had this error years before.
2. Cannot launch the Arena using phone connection
Due to (1), I have to download the Arena whenever I want to launch it. Here, most SRMs begin in the night and I have left my campus at that time. So, I have to use my own internet connection. I use portable hotspot feature in my Android phone.
Sometimes, the Arena launches just fine. But for most cases, it got stuck in this phase for ages: verifying.png (like, I have waited for half an hour and it still does not launch).
Note that (1) happens regardless of connection types.
I am using Arch Linux, 64 bit, and Sun Java 7.
Kindly please help :)
