Description Guard][an 2005-05-05 13:13:01 UTC
Emerging eclipse-sdk-3.1_pre6 fails because of differences between sun and ibm jdks. Details to fix the problem are provided in the additional information field.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. unmask eclipse-sdk against ~x86
2. emerge eclipse-sdk

Actual Results:  
build failed

Expected Results:  
build correctly ;)

Here is the difference between my modified ebuild file and the one provided by

diff /usr/portage/dev-util/eclipse-sdk/eclipse-sdk-3.1_pre6.ebuild
<       [ ${ARCH} == 'x86' ] && awt_lib_path=${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/i386
>       [ ${ARCH} == 'x86' ] && awt_lib_path=${JAVA_HOME}/jre/bin

As you can see, under the ibm 1.4.2 jdk, is located in the jre/bin
directory and I had to append the bootclasspath variable with server.jar because
of the java.rmi.Remote class.

Please note that my version only addresses the ibm 1.4.2 jdk. Since I'm new to
ebuilds, I don't know how to select the proper paths and options depending of
the installed jdk.

Your patch seems to help, but now I die from outofmemory errors. Either the IBM requires more than 768MB (probably when running javadoc), or the -Xmx768m is not getting through for the IBM JDK.

-Xmx is supported by the IBM JDK java command

Didn't find a good solution to this.
