I'm trying to get minecraft to run on Gentoo but it comes up with this error
Starting launcher.
[16:45:38 INFO]: Minecraft Launcher unknown (through bootstrap 5) started on linux...
[16:45:38 INFO]: Current time is Apr 5, 2018, 4:45:38 PM

        at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.startLauncher(
        at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.execute(
        at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.main(

Please fix the error and restart.

This is a fresh install, no mod packs or anything similar, I'm using oracle-jre-bin-9.0.4. As it isn't selectable with java-config I'm starting it with the following
/opt/oracle-jre-bin-9.0.4/bin/java -jar /home/fred/Minecraft/Minecraft.jar

I get the launcher up but it stalls with the error in the terminal window. I've enabled the javafx and gtk3 use flags if that's relevant.
Any ideas?

I tried using icedtea-8 and that got a bit further but this error then occurred,

Do you have xrandr installed? I seem to recall minecraft crashing as described without it.

EDIT: It runs beatifically with icedtea, so no need for the other java.
First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.
