I have a few questions concerning the BISS AWT running on Kaffe 0.8.4.
These are to do with its compatibility with the regular AWT.
Firstly, whenever I try to do a getImage(), I get the following error:
Failed to locate native function:
Does anybody know what this is? This appears on both Intel and Alpha
Secondly, on my machine all the text in text fields is invisible! I can
type stuff in and the cursor moves along, and then I can select the unseen
text. I have a greyscale monitor, but I can't imagine how this would be a
problem since the background for the text fields is white and any other
colour would be darker than this.
Finally, (not to do with BISS) I have noticed that on Alpha Linux, in
kaffe/kaffevm/thread.c, it seems to incorrectly select alarm() for MALARM,
rather than setitimer(). I'm not sure about why, just yet. This doesn't
appear on Intel Linux. Anyway, fixing that makes things a lot more
useable :) I guess this isn't really a question, but I was wondering if
anyone could shed any light on this. SETITIMER is #defined in config.h,
which makes me wonder if other things aren't propagating correctly either.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! I don't know if this mailing
list is the right place to discuss this, but I'm not sure if the problems
are related to BISS or to Kaffe.
