thank´s for your very quick answer.
i don´t know exactly what exactly gentoo foundation and its developers
do. there are a several java sources available for sparc plattform. sun
has binaries for solaris. is it possible to install/transform these
binaries for gentoo? there are a lot of sources available from sun.
would it be possible to install/compile these sources on my machine?
would it be possible for gentoo to generate emerge packages with these
I knew about blackdown java for sparc, these are unstable and do not
support all official sun java features.
