Is there a working Java JDK on PPC yet that is version 1.4 or better? I write a lot of java code and without it, I don't see any use in Gentoo on my PPC yet. Thanks, Jeremy

P.S. - Is it possible to download the linux .bin from Sun and install from that without having any issues? (I know the implications of doing so but will it not work since it's a PPC architecture instead of x86?)

There is a jdk 1.4 available for linuxPPC and it comes from IBM, to install
on gentoo just do
Code:
emerge ibm-jdk-bin

and
Code:
emerge ibm-jre-bin

for the runtime. They are for java 1.4.1, unfortunatly there is no
corresponding javaplugin.

Cool. Anyone know if the Sun JDK will work via downloading the .bin file and running? Thanks, Jeremy

Well, if I am to believe the information in the portage tree, the answer is no.
It is probably compiled for x86 but not ppc.
Can you tell us from where exactly you download the .bin file?
EDIT: Don't worry about the last question a bit of search lead to it. It will
not work. It is not in the list of supported platform.

Thanks for your help. I will be emerging the ibm-jdk-bin for now. Thanks again, Jeremy

Now for sound to work properly...

Has anyone successfully emerged ibm-jre-bin-1.4.1? I have actually looked on the mirrors, and not been able to find the file referenced in the ebuild. I'm almost convinced that the name of the package has been changed.

I'd really like to know what's going on tho.
