Java doesn't work in mozilla 0.7.
Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2001-02-09 13:01:09 EST
I've done some investigation and this looks like it's a glibc issue.  You can
use bits of the standalone java VM that mozilla uses and those standalone parts
don't work on the 7.1 beta.

You can get a copy of the standard jdk code at:


If you untar it you should be able to cd into the bin/ directory and run ./java
-version and it should print out a version string.  It works on 7.0, anyway.

This is a buggy JDK (it has hardcoded knowledge about thread stacks being 2MB
in size aligned to that size). We're now discussing what do with that.

Particularly at least os::Linux::install_alternate_signal_stack(void)
contains this bug.

Opening up so that the sun people can look at this bug.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-21 08:04:34 EST
Should be fixed in glibc-2.2.2-7 and Sun is actually working on a fix using
