JavaFx 11 on RHEL 6

As of JDK 9, JavaFX requires RHEL 7 or later, so no, there is no support 
for RHEL 6. It would be a moderate effort to add this (mostly in the 
build scripts and particularly in the way the native media libraries are 
built). We have no plans to add this support.

> Our company makes a desktop application in Java. We have invested quite heavily in switching our application to JavaFX over the last few years. We're now trying to switch (from Oracle Java 8) to use java 11 with openjdk and openjfx. It all seems fine except if I want to run our application on Linux RHEL 6. Then I get errors about unsatisfied links to do with glibc version, while trying to initialise the graphics. We've reached out to our customers and those that run linux are pretty much all still on RHEL 6 and have no plans to move. I've looked about on the internet and can't find any solution to this problem. Are there any plans for addressing this in future versions of openjfx?
