Anyone interested in this topic can track the discussion at
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=159780 .  Comments and
information most welcome.  (Weird looking forwarding is becalse I
received it at home, forwarded it to me at work, and neglected to notice
that gentoo-sparc@g.o. was not on the distribution --- it was sparc@g.o.
instead.)

Note that we at Sun do not provide "The JDK" for SPARC+Linux. For some reason the only SPARC port we provide runs on Solaris ;-) fancy that. After we finish open sourcing the openjdk project I imagine more headway could be made to supporting the openjdk on other architecture/OS combinations than we provide from Sun. Unfortunately that doesn't help you today. - - David Herron - -- Ferris McCormick (P44646, MI) <fmccor@g.o> Developer, Gentoo Linux (Sparc, Devrel) -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.6-ecc01.6 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFFmv/wQa6M3+I///cRAvtxAJwMgZUHmUX9/2Jy1aZUi1Fd4HPxfwCeMmfE MhKItGymY1Do/ljSIvEry5o= =zpzb -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- Petteri Räty wrote:
