I also see now that java_vm is not exiting even after the applet should have finished running (this with the Blackboard applet that I have specifically identified as problematic). Can these ports use kaffe instead? Or is there a way to force java_vm to exit without my having to babysit it? Killing java_vm takes down Firefox as well. > > earth% pkg_info -r diablo-jdk-1.5.0.07.01_8 > > Information for diablo-jdk-1.5.0.07.01_8: > > > > Depends on: > > Dependency: xtrans-1.0.4 > > Dependency: xproto-7.0.10_1 > > Dependency: xextproto-7.0.2 > > Dependency: javavmwrapper-2.3 > > > > earth% cat /var/db/pkg/diablo-jdk-1.5.0.07.01_8/+REQUIRED_BY > > apache-ant-1.7.0_1 > > earth% > > Obvious. > > > At least I do not yet see java_vm (which seems to have been the > > culprit in cases where I was able to get back into the system) yet > > reappearing. > > > > When I encountered difficulty this morning, I had left both firefox > > and an ports upgrade running.
