Re: More information regarding FreeBSD PowerPC and Java binaries. Super Bisquit Thu Mar 08 13:00:47 2012
A few questions: 1. Has anyone built or tried building OpenJDK7 on a PowerPC machine? I see that the Makefile has for i386 amd only and checks for i386/i586 in OSARCH. I've just edited out those two values: Nothing is being built until portupgrade finishes on both active machines. 2. I haven't looked as of yet due to system rebuilding errors; but, when was the last reference in ports or java to Zero VM. 3. The older Sun/Oracle java downloads don't seem to exist. Where would they currently be located? I would like to look at the install script and compare that to my fixes. 4. Why does the installer use "gzip -d $FILE" when "tar xvf $FILE" executes without an error? I've also used "tar xvf > /dev/null" to replace the "$UNCOMPRESS(gzip -d) > /dev/null" in the install. As I said, both machines- iMac G4 PowerMac Quicksilver- are being rebuilt. I can always run test builds on either machine while working on other FreeBSD items: ports, ppc package builds, qemu related, et c/al.
