First of all, as a new subscriber to this list, let me say that I'm quite impressed with
kaffe. On Linux, kaffe 1.0.5 compiles cleanly and even runs my Swing applications.
However, on HP-UX, I didn't get nearly as far. The latest messages regarding HP-UX
in the mailing archives are a few months old, so I'd like to know if anyone
has managed to build and run kaffe 1.0.5 on HP-UX.
The first problem I've had is to do with shared libraries (as usual on HP-UX, I'm
inclined to say...).
libtool outputs the following message
*** Warning: inter-library dependencies are not known to be supported.
*** All declared inter-library dependencies are being dropped.
*** Warning: libtool could not satisfy all declared inter-library
*** dependencies of module libmath. Therefore, libtool will create
*** a static module, that should work as long as the dlopening
*** application is linked with the -dlopen flag.
A while ago, people reported that kaffe now works with shared libs on HP-UX,
so I really wonder what's going wrong here. By the way, I'm using egcs-1.1.2.
I also tried HP's "cc -Aa", but that didn't work at all, i.e. there were
some make errors.
I was hoping that kaffe might work even without dynamic libraries, but the
results of "make check" don't look too promising:
TestScript: 9863 Abort(coredump)
(test script hangs. deadlock?)
