That's exactly what I did [manually] when I've found that having a 1.5 system JVM is not healthy... I've listed all packages depending on jdk, unmerged them and used "emerge -1" to get them back with 1.4 jdk. (It was so long ago that I almost forgot about that solution: unmerge/emerge. If I remembered better I'd suggest that to Henrique sooner - anyway, good analysis Joshua!) Then I've found the axxo-overlay and later the migration-overlay. The rest is history. :) Cheers, -- gentoo-java@g.o mailing list
