Question RHEL 6.5 on ppc64 - OpenJDK Package Info


Hi folks,

we are currently "porting" an application to Linux on Power. As our
application is java-based, this would be very easy. We already have
packaging for CentOS 6.x (x86_64), which is of course also suitable for
RHEL 6.x.

Since there is no released CentOS PPC port yet, we are currently working
on RHEL6.5 ppc64, however this lacks OpenJDK-7 packages
(java-1.7.0-openjdk, compared to i386/x86_64). Building
java-1.7.0-openjdk from Source RPM with a tweaked spec file does not
work quickly as there are also lots of missing required build packages
on ppc64.

Does anyone have a proper bootstrap build chain to successfully build
the OpenJDK-7 package (java-1.7.0-openjdk). Or does anyone have already
build ppc64 packges?

Thanks in advance,
Nishith

Again, as you've been told SEVERAL TIMES now:
  • CentOS WILL NOT be working on PPC systems...you can see this on their website.
  • You are using Red Hat ENTERPRISE...so you need to PAY FOR IT
  • You need to call Red Hat support, since if you're PAYING FOR RHEL, you will have the packages that you're missing
Doesn't get much simpler. This has even been covered on Red Hat's website...again, did you try to look this up??
