I just got it to run on alpha Digital Unix 3.2
It's strange but the threads didn't work as long as I used the 
classes.zip file which comes with JDK 1.0.2 for alpha. I've copied 
classes.zip from my linux pc and now it works.

Which compiler are you using ? I've used gcc and I also had to modify one
include file. I'm also concerned about the large number of warnings I get 
during compilation, especially because I had to learn that one of my 
application crashes from time to time probably due to a large number of  
errors of this kind:

Unaligned access pid=30635 <kaffe> va=7a002e00620072 pc=3ffbffd7000 
ra=3ffbffd6fd4 type=ldt

Any hints how to solve this problem ?
