first of all my thanks to Dalibor for his help
in compiling kaffe on a MIPS platfor with Nano-X.
I could compile and run kaffe-1.1.6 using the Nano-X
awt interface with Dalibor help.
The problem I found was a
caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.awt.Toolkit.fntInitFont (Toolkit.java:native)
Looking at the code, it seems that the function which initializa
the fonts return an id (an integer, i think) while the nativeData
field is declared as Pointer.
I think that this gives the exception.
I checked kaffe-1.1.5 and I saw tha nativeData was declared as Ptr:
compiling kaffe-1.1.5 and followinf the same steps I followed for
I got a runnable kaffe which gave no exceptions.
Do I missed something? there's a reason why that field type
Anyway, now kaffe starts correctly, with no errors, but I
see no output on my LCD!!!!
My command line is:
nano-X & nanowm & /usr/local/kaffe/bin/kaffe
I see nanowm background but nothing else.
if I start another program, for example nxterm, I see it
correctly on the LCD.
There some option to give to kaffe to specify the output screen?
