Where are you getting your JRE from? The JRE at java.sun.com, either
version 1.4.2_05 or 1.5.0 works with Azureus. As a matter of fact, I
decided to run java -version from /usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin and got the
following response (sorry for the long quote):
This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java
master link required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.
This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.

It appears that the Sun JRE's are setup to allow for compatibility with
jpackage.org blackdown JRE's (I have found no use for Blackdown since
about version 1.1.8, which is a long time ago.)
Anyway, I found no problem running Azureus with the different JRE's. I
can make a suggestion that you edit the azureus script and place the
path to your JRE bin directory in the JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR variable, which
is about three lines into the script.
