Description Leung Ki Chi 2005-04-25 04:01:38 UTC
Netbeans 3.6 was released early last year. It has been in Portage for some time, but  keyworded ~x86 until now.

I have searched through bugzilla, and cannot find any open bugs with this particular version. Hence, I request that version 3.6 be marked stable on x86 at least.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I think that we should push 4.0 to stable as soon as possible and make 4.1 the
testing version when it's done. 
Comment 2 Petteri Räty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-19 11:53:47 UTC
The Netbeans 4.0 ebuild is from source so we dropped all the keywords for which
we could not test. So please arches test and add your keywords.
Comment 3 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-19 12:24:28 UTC
As SPARC does not currently have a valid 1.4.2 JDK, we cannot test at this time.
Comment 4 Fernando J. Pereda (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-19 13:06:43 UTC
Same problem here.
Comment 5 David Holm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-20 02:12:11 UTC
tomcat 5.0.28 does not build on ppc because "" is not present in
the IBM JDK (5.0.27 does however build).
dev-java/jakarta-jstl-1.1.2 fails with the following error:
    [javac] Found 1 system error and issued 2 warnings:

    [javac] *** Semantic Warning: I/O warning: "No such file or directory" while

    [javac] *** Semantic Error: You need to modify your classpath, sourcepath,

Can we work around these problems in any way or is ppc toast?

The jakarta-jstl ebuild probably needs tome adjusting then.

since I just added ~ia64 to some of the prereqs tonight, I don't think this is
going to be marked stable on ia64 soon.  we'll get to this eventually (usual
stabilization cycle) but I'm removing ia64 from the cc list for now.

Netbeans 5.5 has been committed to tree. Since this is the current version of
Netbeans. Work will not be done on older versions. There is already a pre-alpha
6.0 ebuild in java-migration-overlay that fordfrog has re-bumped from 5.0, and
addressed the new deps and etc. Closing this bug.
