Sorry for my delayed response ... i'm quite busy lately trying to finish
some real live (tm) issues.

First of all, i would like to clarify that java related bugs in gentoo
alpha aren't the first in our TODO list. This has a quite simple
explanation: Only java virtual machine actually in portage is
"java-compaq" which is not maintained upstream since 1.3.1, so try to
solve bugs without upstream support and without new 1.4 (or 1.5) java
branch could be very bad idea.
Summarizing: java bugs are always welcome (of course) but response might
be very slow or non-existant.
After this, I have to say that last month i was playing with java
trying to make things work on alpha and i found same problem with
I found a patch (in some alpha related malling list) that works fine for
me, if you want give it a look:
- 1. Download the patch
- 2. Place where you want, and compile it with:
gcc -shared -o libcwait.so libcwait.c -fpic -O
- 3. Preload the patch writing at the beginning of /opt/compaq-jdk/bin/java
I would appreciate a lot that you report the results, maybe we could
include it into the tree if it solves some of our problems.
I hope back to have some free time for Gentoo at the end of this month
to continue playing with java and trying to get 1.4 branch in alpha.
Bye and sorry again for the delay.
