What sort of trouble? (The swing stuff is answered below.)

Kaffe comes with its own compiler (kjc), which has some known
problems, but is sufficient for most things. If you're going to do a
lot of compiling, I suggest getting 'jikes', though.

You need to get the Swing.jar to run Swing apps on Kaffe. I think you
can get that from here: http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/download.html
You'll have to add the Swing.jar to your classpath or put it in
Kaffe's lib/share/kaffe/ directory.
If someone wants to double check this info and update the FAQ.awt (or
create a FAQ.swing), I'd check it in. :)
