I would like to let you know that I have tried EVERY release of Kaffe, most
of them more that once, on BSDI 2.1 & BSDI 3.0. I have NOT gotten any of
them to run successfully! There are some quirks to getting it setup to begin
with, most answers to this can be found at the mailing list archives. But
once all these were straightened out, the final outcome was at best a
hanging app or usually a Java.Lang....something...Error.
If you have ANY better luck, PLEASE let me know. Meanwhile, I watch the list
like a hawk waiting for a release or patch that will enable Kaffe to run in
a stable manner on BSDI.
