Flex Builder on Ubuntu Hardy 8

UbuntuI don't know exactly why, but the first time I found the link of an article about the first Ubuntu 8 hardy alpha release I couldn't wait anymore and so I immediately upgraded my distribution..
I can't resist to alphas and betas! damn!

Anyway, a part the obvious problems related to an alpha version, such as video card, mouse etc.. the most frustrating thing was the fact my eclipse installation was corrupted.. I reinstalled eclipse again and downloaded again flex builder for linux.
But when trying to install Flex builder  I received a really nonsense java exception error, which more or less was:

xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed

After some google searches I found out the solution for my problems ( I'm posting here in case someone else is so crazy to upgrade his ubuntu version with a flex builder installed into ):

In a terminal window:

sudo sed -i 's/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g' /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.04/jre/lib/i386/xawt/libmawt.so

Then restarting flex builder bin installation everything worked again and now I'm happy with my flex builder linux version again :)
