Lorien's case

About installing Fenfire on clean Debian installation at lorien.it.jyu.fi.

Status 16.6.2003:

All except Loom compiles. (Loom doesn't have proper target in Makefile)

Still problem with Kaffe+Jython: sys-package-mgr: skipping bad jar, '/usr/local/kaffe/jre/lib/rt.jar'

I resolved that by adding rt.jar from current Debian package (Kaffe 1.07) into CLASSPATH.

Status 5.6.2003:


  • installed libgmp3-dev
  • installed kaffe from CVS
  • changed environmental variables to point new Kaffe and use jikes-kaffe as compiled instead of kjc provided with Kaffe


ANT don't work:

file:/home/atsoukka/fenfire/fenfire/build.xml:28: Unable to find a javac compiler;
com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.

MouseWheelEvent is in CVS Kaffe, but now got HBox/HBoxVob not found error, changed kjc to jikes and got a lot of warnings and some errors:

*** Semantic Error: The import "java/awt/event/MouseWheelEvent" is not
valid, since it does not name a type in a package.

*** Semantic Error: A candidate for type "MouseWheelEvent" was found,
but it is invalid and needs to be fixed before this type will
successfully compile.

*** Semantic Error: No applicable overload was found for a constructor
of type "java.lang.Error". Perhaps you wanted the overloaded version
"Error(java.lang.String $1);" instead?

Navidoc works with single files, but crashed unexceptedly after about dozen of reST -files:

buildStackTrace((nil)): can't allocate stackTraceInfo
kaffe-bin: exception.c:463: dispatchException: Assertion
`baseframe != ((void *)0)' failed.

Status 3.6.2003:

All C++ code seemed to compile (callgl, glmosaictext, libvob).

ANT didn't work:

[exception was java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

Libvob's JAVA code didn't compile:

error:Import of type  "java/awt/event/MouseWheelEvent"
from unnamed package [JLS 7.6]

java/awt/event/MouseWheelEvent not yet in Debian's Kaffe?

Javadoc didn't work:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: sun/tools/javadoc/Main

RESOLVED: Classes should be installed outside Kaffe.

Jython seemed to work, but Navidoc crashed it with:

os.putenv("MPINPUTS", "../navidoc/mp/")

File "rst2any.py", line 32, in ?
File "/home/atsoukka/fenfire/navidoc/config.py", line 32, in ?

Packages installed explicitly (and caused a lot of packages to install implicitly via apt-get) after default Debian installation from unstable:

NVidia drivers and dev libraries

OpenGL libraries

Other libraries

Compilers and tools

Environmental variables for Kaffe and Jikes
