I have tried to compile and run kaffe v0.8.1 on linuxelf and m68k
NetBSD without any luck, and thought I should send some notes which
might help further development. I do not read this mailing-list
I fetched kaffe-0.8.1.tgz, kaffe-0.8.1-package-biss-net.com.tgz and
kaffe-0.8.1-package-javasoft.com.tgz, unpacked and tried to compile on
NetBSD 1.2 running on HP9000/425. It failed, because the linker tried
to make shared libraries using -Bdynamic. When I changed this to
-shared, the whole system compiled.
When I tried to run the appletviewer, it crashed with illegal
I then compiled the same configuration on RedHat 4.0, without any
problems. The problems arrived when I tried to run the appletviewer.
The system is apparently unable to load the X11 library. After
loading some libraries, it gives me this message:
kaffe: can't resolve symbol 'XSetErrorHandler'
I have no idea what is wrong, but I'll try a later version. If
anybody would like me to test some spesific things, send a mail.
