Description of problem:
I would like to see gcc-java built to support AWT.  A GTK AWT peer may
be built by giving gcc's configure script the --enable-java-awt=gtk
argument.  Though its implementation is not complete, it would be nice
to be able to start testing gcc's GTK AWT peer using a Fedora-provided

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to execute a java application that uses AWT and was compiled using
Fedora's gcc-java package.

Additional info:

Comment 1 W. Michael Petullo 2004-08-22 02:39:15 UTC
I looks like the GTK AWT peer is built as of gcc 3.4.1-8.  However, on
PowerPC things don't seem to work quite right.

"gcj --main=HelloWorldAWT HelloWorldAWT.java" compiles fine.

./a.out" executes fine.

But "./a.out" says:

Exception in thread "main" java.awt.AWTError: Cannot load AWT toolkit:
   at java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.5.0.0)

Why would the explicit LD_PRELOAD be needed?

Comment 2 W. Michael Petullo 2004-09-04 17:58:55 UTC
This seems to be fixed in gcc-java-3.4.1-10.  LD_PRELOAD is no longer
