I have to say, I do not like the look of what /usr/bin/report-kaffe-bug
did here, and the lack of a man page for send-pr isn't very encouraging
I've been using the blackdown JDK on RHL 5.x, and thought to check out
kaffe-1.0.b4-2 which ships with RHL 6.0.
Unfortunately, it failed the first test: I use the jre command extensively
and there isn't one included.
Note too: it's necessary to set CLASSPATH to secify any libraries that do
not ship with kaffe: swing, a user's own collection being obvious examples.
I read /usr/doc/kaffe-1.0.b4/README which says:
No environment configuration is necessary to run kaffe. However, you may
want to include the directory in which kaffe is installed in your path.
Typically, this would be /usr/local/bin:
All necessary setup is taken care of by `kaffe' (note the lower case),
which is actually a driver shell script for the `Kaffe' executable.
Note that you don't have to setup the CLASSPATH - if you do then that's
fine, but if you don't kaffe will construct a classpath that has the
current directory plus the Jar and Zip files it needs to run. For the
details of how the CLASSPATH is set up, refer to kaffe/scripts/kaffe.in.
If you want to test the kaffe executable you built, type
"make all install", and type "make check". This will run a suite of
tests to check that your Kaffe executable is in fact working.
Unfortunately, I have no kaffe/scripts/kaffe.in.
IOW, the documentation that I have isn't sufficient for my needs.
