ok. i have the following versions:
libc.so = 5.4.23
ldd = 1.8.10
gcc = 18.104.22.168
should i have libc version 6?
also i tried installing kaffe with the epfl toolkit and that had
similar problems with gui. can i use sun's motif toolkit, and if so,
how would i go about it? i tried just including the jdk libraries in
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and using
kaffe -Dawt.toolkit=sun.awt.motif.MToolkit ...
but there must be some other libraries it wants.
i still don't understand about the library load failure messages, though.
More information about the kaffe
