Amazing that Lesstif works this well, I've seen it fail badly on other things. Your JVM on Alpha is faster than the x86 JVM on Pentium here (which has the assembly optimized VM) :-). It's running here on RH5 with kernel 2.1.86 on an XLT machine. There are cosmetic problems (no kidding:), here goes: - Permissions in the classes directories are wrong (the . entry in all classes subdirs are without read access for others). - It seems fvwm2 (2.0.46) is terribly confused about the windows; it apparently doesn't understand size or other properties. As a result, the initial (AWT) resize completely squashes windows, the window borders look wrong, and most window ops (in fvwm2 menus) are disabled (even 'move'!). (Anyone have better experiences with other WMs?) - appletviewer doesn't work (not that I care...). Didn't try jdb or other things yet. Excellent work! - Reinoud -- More information on Java-Linux can be found at: http://www.blackdown.org/java-linux.html This list is archived daily at: http://www.blackdown.org/java-linux/archive/ To unsubscribe from this list: send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word 'unsubscribe' in the subject line.
