Hi all,

i cross-compiled kaffe-1.1.5 to ARM XScale PXA255
(gcc-3.4.3 glibc-2.3.4 binutils-2.15)
and first had this problem

$ ./kaffe Hello
$ Internal error: caught an unexpected exception.
$ Please check your CLASSPATH and your installation.

So i followed some advice from the mainling archive


and configured kaffe like this

CC=arm-linux-gcc NM=arm-linux-nm AR=arm-linux-ar ./configure 
--prefix=$KAFFE_ARM \
--host=arm-linux --build=i686-linux --enable-pure-java-math --enable-gcj 
--enable-xscale --disable-mips2 \
--disable-sound --disable-xmltest --disable-xslttest 
--without-classpath-gtk-awt \
--with-engine=jit --with-jikes="jikes +Pno-shadow +Pno-switchcheck" 
--disable-rpath --with-rt-jar=$KAFFE_JAR/rt.jar

$ ./kaffe Hello
kaffe starts fine but seems to hang (i.e. not screen output and CTRL-C
needed to exit)

any ideas ?
