Ok so it seems i still have some other issues... :( I have previously successfully installed the diablo JDK on the official compatible versions (FreeBSD 5.5 and 6.1) But I need to have JDK installed in numerous versions of FreeBSD. In this case i need it on 5.0 version
The problem I have now is getting it installed in my FreeBSD 5.0 system So i tried to pkg_add the diablo-jdk-freebsd5.i318.104.22.168.07.01.tbz from this http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml website (the package is meant for FreeBSD5.5, but its the closest thing available for the 5.0) Like in all the other times I've installed it (on the compatible versions)... it asked for the XORG libraries and the javavmwrapper-2.0_6. I managed to install the XORG Libraries manually and it works... so the only thing i am not able to install is the javavmwrapper which i need I've tried numerous methods: Method 1: cd /usr/ports/java/javavmwrapper make install clean The result.... "make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue" And yes my ports tree is updated Method 2: pkg_add -r ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages/Latest/javavmwrapper.tbz In this method not only does it display the "...is in the future" messages, but at the end it says "pkg_add: write_plist: unknown command type -1 (kaffe-1.*)" Can anyone please let me know how i can get javavmwrapper installed so i can install the JDK on FreeBSD5.0???
