Title: RE: GCJ on Linux

Yes - it's a runtime failure. Sorry for not making that clear.

We'll grab the latest snapshot of GCJ and try it again on our system.

Assuming this is a runtime failure, it's likely to be caused by the fact that Mandrake 6.1 aparently uses a kernel configured for > 1GB physical memory.  This causes the main process stack to start at an address different from what the garbage collector expects.  This is fixed in more recent versions of the garbage collector.

Subject: GCJ on Linux

We have just installed gcj on a Linux/intel machine. When we compile a trivial hello world program we get a segmentation violation. Does GCJ work under Linux on intel?

Our system details:
Mandrake Linux 6.1
