Yes we have had some conversations but he has more experience so he is
pulling the jdk7 tree and patching that with the diff from the bsd tree. He
also has a lot more bootstrap options than I do as he is on Intel and I am
on PowerPC. I am trying to use the Apple Java 1.5 with it linked so it looks
like a standard JRE layout and so far this looks viable. My goal is to
eventually have a JDK 1.6 since it appears 1.5 is the end of the road from
Apple on PowerPC. Having a Free Software version is a huge plus. So
certainly the bsd-port and zero are really important to me.
I wanted to follow Andrew's suggestion to work through the patches and use
Icedtea7 as it looks like it pulls both the BSD forest (/usr/local/bin/hg
fclone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/bsd-port/bsd-port openjdk;) and zero (but
I haven't seen where zero comes from yet in the build). If I ignore the
patches I can get much further but I was just starting from scratch again
with the newest updates.
I guess Icedtea works from scratch on other platforms without
errors/stopping? I'm still unclear what patches I would need and also why
the patches are not adjusted so they don't fail. I would think it would be
good thing to get Icedtea to actual complete on my platform and fix things
that make that happen but I am very new to this whole process so I'm trying
to find a path and make small contributions if I can. If this is not a good
approach I could try other things like Michael is doing.
