JavaFX SDK 8 on Beagleboard

An update for you all,

I have managed to get the JDK 8 running on a Hardkernel ODROID-U2 (, and so the 'No such file or directory issue' seems to be very specific to the Beagleboard-Xm.

However, when I try to run JavaFX samples it crashes, because the EGL2 libraries are not installed in the Linaro Ubuntu that I have for the U2.

I am going to try to build/install the EGL libraries for the board, but am not sure how easy that will be. Can anybody advise?

I also have a raspberry Pi, but find it's power supply instabilities and weaknesses very frustrating, and so much prefer the more stable beaglebord for tinkering. In particular I am working with Tinkerforge equipment that really makes the poor old Pi expire :-(
