OpenJDK 1.7 on DragonFly

Chris Turner got it working on i386, at least, and his post will help you do the same.  I don’t know if these changes have made it through to pkgsrc or for x86_64 yet.

    Ouch! The bootstrap problems seems to be similar to the ones addressed by the IcedTea project:
    Could perhaps be worth looking into.

    I’ll be attempting an x64 bootstrap this weekend and then trying to determine
    how this should be integrated into pkgsrc proper from there (irrespective of x64 results)

    will keep people posted

    as for the ‘iced tea’ stuff – I think this is integrated into the pkgsrc build – not 100% – however, I’ve got it working so we’ll go with that for now .. once we have a native / redistributable 1.7 integrated into the pkgsrc tree there
    shouldn’t really be any bootstrap licensing issues and this whole mess can fade into the past

    Will we eventually have a native java firefox plugin?

    My understanding is that this is a limitation of openjdk itself rather than a df/bootstrap issue

    the pkgsrc makefiles have some details about this – see also:

    (this is not my patched makefiles outlined above but the related applet/webstart stuff hasn’t changed)
