Debian Woody (2.4 kernel) testing and Blackdown J2SDK 1.3.1
someone recently mentioned in a java related thread that it was
necessary to compile libc or glibc to get Java2 to run, if i remember
correctly. is that the case?
i'm running "testing", and installed J2SDK1.3.1 from blackdown without
any apparent problems.
some java applications work, including, incredibly, most of the java3d
demos, but some fail. this is what i get when i try to run Eclipse:
Exception in thread "main" java.util.zip.ZipException: No such file or
directory at java.util.zip.ZipFile.open(Native Method)
as J2SDK 1.3.1 seems *very* standard to me, i gotta admit i was kind of
shocked to find out it doesn't run although the installer doesn't
complain. actually, i had switched from "stable" to "testing" in the
hope that would make it work.
would it help to switch to "unstable"? the machine is a purely
development & fun machine, so i don't need maximum stability.
or is it sufficient to do that glibc recompilation? i would appreciate
any hints on that, as i'm a newbie to compiling stuff on linux.
