JRE1.1.5 for sun4/SunOS 4.1.x

This is a pre-release version. It may work for you, it may not.

The JRE1.1.5 SunOS binary (4,968,784 bytes) was built with Motif 1.2.1 on a SunOS 4.1.3_U1 system. Also available via FTP.

The gzipped tar file is 4,968,784 bytes, and unpacks to a directory of roughly 6.9Meg.

Known bugs

You will receive messages like

	Warning: gethostbyname(xxx.xxx.xxx) not reentrant
on stderr. This will be fixed in a future release.

No Multicast
SunOS has no native support for Multicast networking.


Download the binary. Select an installation location (/usr/local perhaps?) that has about 6.9Meg free. The binary will install in the subdirectory jre1.1.5. eg:
	cat jre1.1.5-FreeBSD.tar.gz | (cd /usr/local; gtar xvfzp -)


If you aren't using a Solaris 2.x machine as your font server, you should verify the contents of the .../jre1.1.5/lib/font.properties file. A sample perl program that will do this automatically is provided in jre1.1.5/bin/xxx

Other packages needed

You will need X11R4 or later versions of the libX11, libXt, and libXext shareable libraries.


Sorry I can't guarantee any support, but you could try sending me problem reports via email.
