Hello!

I'm quite a bit desperate at the moment:
A while ago, I used ibm-jdk, and everything was fine.
I changed to ibm-jdk-bin, because I need java 1.4 and ibm-jdk is obsolete now.

Now nearly every javac compilation coredumps. I suspect that this happens, as soon as javac tries to give some error/warning message.

Example (expected is a normal error message complaining about the wrong java syntax):
Code:
mki@goblin mki $ which javac
/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.1/bin/javac
mki@goblin mki $ etcat belongs /opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.1/bin/javac
Searching for /opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.1/bin/javac in * ...
dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.1-r1
mki@goblin mki $ echo "{" > Test.java
mki@goblin mki $ javac Test.java
JVMDG217: Dump Handler is Processing a Signal - Please Wait.
JVMDG303: JVM Requesting Java core file
JVMDG304: Java core file written to /home/mki/javacore.20040601.133055.6964.txt
JVMDG215: Dump Handler has Processed Exception Signal 4.
Illegal instruction


I filed a bug report, too. The core file and my emerge info can be found there. I use a G3 iBook 800 MHz.

I cannot emerge packages that involve java compilation: For example, mod_php with +java crashes.

This is very annoying, and I don't know what to do. I talked to dholm on #gentoo-ppc, but he could not reproduce the error.

Right now, I am clueless. I tried to unmerge/reemerge ibm-jdk-bin (with fresh download), to no avail.
I need some serious help on how to track down the reason for this error. Any hint, suggestion, speculation etc. is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

~michael
