Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with running kaffe on
FC5.  It compiles fine, and I install it in /home/aric/software/kaffe.
But when I try to run a simple Hello World app, I get this:

    % cat > test.java
    class test
            public static void main(String args[])
               System.out.println("Hello World!");
    % ~/software/kaffe/bin/javac test.java
    % ~/software/kaffe/bin/java test
    Internal error: caught an unexpected exception.
    Please check your CLASSPATH and your installation.

If I run it with Sun's jdk 1.5, it runs correctly.  I am suspecting
something with jikes because I get the same kind of behavior with

Is anyone else having difficulty with this?
