hi, I am using FreeBSD 5.2.1 -RELEASE as a desktop and have come across some problems when installing java. I downloaded the files listed in the handbook into /usr/ports/distfiles/ and went to install /usr/ports/java/jdk13 with 'make install clean'. The installation starts then stops saying that i need to download a diablo caffe file and place it in /usr/ports/distfiles/. I download the file, start the install again and get the following;
# Start of jdk build i386 Build started: 1.3.1-p8-root-040913-23:10 ERROR: Your BOOTDIR environment variable does not point to a valid Java 2 SDK for bootstrapping this build. A Java 2 SDK 1.3.1 build must be bootstrapped against any 1.3 build. Please update your ALT_BOOTDIR setting, or just unset it, and start your build again. Exiting because of the above error(s). gmake: *** [sanity] Error 1 *** Error code 2 Stop in /usr/ports/java/jdk13. What does this error message mean? I have all the files that were listed in /usr/ports/distfiles what am I missing or doing wrong? thanks Brett _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
