Question Java compiled with gcc-3.2


Does anyone know of anywhere on the net that contains java precompiled with a gcc-3.2 linux distro? Sun's latest version 1.4.1 has problems with plugins on browsers (I'm talking mozilla and galeon from experience) compiled with gcc-3.2. I realise I could compile java myself, but wanted to know if it would work first rather than spending a day with the machine compiling java only for it to not work.

Cheers

I've just finished compiling java 1.4.0 with gcc 3.2, but so far I haven't managed to get the javaplugin to work with mozilla. The browser just dies with error messages when I try to access a site with java. I think it's because I'm supposed to be preloading libraries in mozilla that are needed by the plugin. But I've tried doing that with setting LD_PRELOAD but so far haven't had any positive results.
I followed the hints on this page http://linuxfromscratch.org/~tushar/hints
which might be usefull to you if you decide to compile it anyway.

I was gonna try to compile 1.4.1 later but haven't got that far yet. I first want to try recompiling mozilla without optimizations.

If you do end up finding binaries could you post a link as I would like to test them as well.

GtkUser with which version of GCC is your browser compiled? I assume it's not with gcc-3.2.

Will post a link if I find one - might try some LFSers to see what they have done. It's not fair - I can't play yahoo pool in linux yet!

Actually I'm using Netbeans IDE and the latest version of the SDK 1.4.1
