Im working to integrate it into fedora's openjdk builds. We currently have
gcc-4.3.0 to build it, the build server is a T1000
uname -a Linux daedalus.ausil.us 2.6.21-1.3149.al3.14smp #1 SMP Wed Aug 29
14:06:19 EDT 2007 sparc64 sparc64 sparc64 GNU/Linux
i also have a 2.6.25 kernel i can test. When i get the T2000 next week it
will be running Fedora 9 with a 2.6.25 kernel. With secondary architectures
for Fedora we will be building everytime fedora builds a new jdk.
One of the most requested features for Aurora SPARC Linux is a working java.
Not sure if that means there is a market for it. but i think that it will
get decent testing.
Again thanks for releasing the code.
