Re: jdk for ppc
thank you, Gregory, John and Sven for your help!
Gregory's suggestion of using JITC_PROCESSOR_TYPE seems to work so
far. i've also installed free-java-sdk (with sablevm jikes and gjc),
which also work ok within their limitations... i'd love to stick to
free software as much as i can. at least, with the IBM jdk as a
fallback, i can avoid macosx (which i must admit i would probably use
if it were free: i'd liked a lot of what i've seen).
thanks again: i must say that the debppc community is one of the most
supportive and helpful one i've met ever, and i'm very happy of
joinning it. you guys (and gals) rock.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does
not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
