Hi *,

on SUN/Solaris 2.5.1, I have successfully compiled kaffe 1.0b3.
After that, with Kaffe javac, I'm able to compile many java programs (basic
java examples, awt). But when I try to execute the AWT programs with Kaffe
VM, it doesn't work ! I have the following messages :

What's the problem ?
I have tried different options while compiling kaffe (--with-threads,
--with-x) and their opposite value, but it doesn't change anything on the

Could it be possible that the special configuration of my X server has a bad
influence on Kaffe VM behaviour ?
I'm currently using a PC under NT with an X11 server (Exceed) where I have
all my X11 windows (xterm, xemacs,...).

Thanks in advance for all
