I installed everything with eclipse in it anyway...

Anyway, somethings not working here as expected. Having
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java/gcj is _much_ slower (in startup) than using
SUN's JDK. And I can't use Java 1.5 features such as template-classes.

Also it seems that java-gcj VM doesn't load jar files from
/usr/share/java. I get a class not found exception for the javahl
library on startup:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.tigris.subversion.javahl.SVNClient not found in gnu.gcj.runtime.SystemClassLoader{urls=[file:/usr/lib/eclipse/startup.jar], parent=gnu.gcj.runtime.ExtensionClassLoader{urls=[], parent=null}}

The difference in startup is 1minute (with gcj), 40 seconds(with vm=sun,
java=java-gcj) and 30 seconds(with vm=sun and java=sun)

Any thoughts about this?


You don't become a failure until you're satisfied with being one.
