Java for the Opteron...


Does anybody know how to get java for an opteron architecture? Success stories?

I'd rather stay away from the GNU java, if I can help it.

Sun's download site only has Itanium downloads.

Thanks for your help.

Blackdown provides the JDK and JRE for Linux/AMD64 (Opteron is the same platform).
Notes for the AMD64 Version
The AMD64 version of J2SE 1.4.2-rc1 uses the HotSpot Server VM by default. The HotSpot Client VM is not available for AMD64 at this time.

Please note that this release was only tested on SuSE SLES 8 SP3 and SuSE Linux 9.0. If you experience problems on other distributions for AMD64, then let us know.

* Requirements
o glibc 2.2.5 or newer
o kernel 2.4.19 or newer
o XFree 4.2 or newer
o libstdc++ from gcc-3.2 or newer (only needed for the gcc-3.2 Java build)
o 64-bit build of Mozilla 1.0 or newer (needed only for the Java Plug-In)
The current version is 1.4.2-rc1 and is available here.
