Hi,

I tried to install IBM's JDK 1.4.1-r1 on my G4. But when I try to connect to IBM's server (as mentioned in the ebuild) in order to download the file I always get the message that they've got a problem with their server or their network migth be down.

But I found it at ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/unix/linux/mirrors/gentoo/distfiles/, but as *.tar file (and not as expected as a *.tgz file). But I gave it a try and downloaded ist, but I still can't install it because the checksum does not match.

Do you know another source where I could get the JDK?

Kind regards,
Lars

Ok, I was able to download the file from IBM's server (was about 56MB - I thought it to be around 100MB) and copied it to /usr/portage/distfiles.

But when I try to emerge ibm-jdk I get this:

Code:

!!! File is corrupt or incomplete. (Digests do not match)
>>> our recorded digest: 8bb4766b77426d450f1493963e5f40bf
>>>  your file's digest: 6d0d7d12596d1eeb753291cc7e2deeaa
!!! File does not exist: /usr/portage/distfiles//IBMJava2-SDK-141.ppc.tgz


Do I have to install the ibm-jre first?

Any hints?

Kind regards,
Lars

Ok, I was able to solve this problem. Later this afternoon I could download the SDK form IBM's website, but it is important to take the latest SDK (SR 2) and [b]not[/] SR 1. Otherwise you'll experience the checksum error that I had, too ;-)

But another question: How do I set the CLASSPATH correct? I already read the Java documentation but I couldn't really figure out where my CLASSPATH should point to (or better to say: to which *.jar file or directory). I'm able to compile Java programms so everything seems to be ok, but I guess javac also looks in the paths that are specified by JAVA_HOME or something like this.

Kind regards,
Lars
