How to build OpenJDK-JRE6 from OpenJDK Source code

Asked by Arvind IK Chari on 2019-12-05

Hi

I see in the repo for OpenJDK6 that various JREs have been created (CacaoVM/JamVM based etc).

Please let me know how I can build the JRE6 from the OpenJDK6 source code.

Yours sincerely,
Arvind.

Where are you getting the source from and why are you building it? What version of JRE are you looking at installing? Is there no deb way to install it?

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a: uname -a

Thanks

Hi

I have the source for OpenJDK6-JDK build49. The source is available here-->https://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk6/jdk6/rev/25756cbdf91c.

I need to build both the JDK6 and JRE6 for multiple CPU architectures.

The reason being the build version is b49 at the above site, while here the max build is 33.
While the download from above mentioned site explains how to build the JDK, there is no mention of how to build the b49.

Yours sincerely,
Arvind.

Hello again,

I am extremely sorry for some typo errors in my previous reply-

I want to build both JDK6 and JRE6 (both b49).

Yours sincerely,
Arvind.

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

Hello,

This is the output-

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Raspbian
Description: Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release: 10
Codename: buster
Linux raspberrypi 4.19.75-v7l+ #1270 SMP Tue Sep 24 18:51:41 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

Raspbian is a customised version of Debian meant for use with the Raspberry Pi.

Yours sincerely,
Arvind.

This is support for Ubuntu only, and neither for operating systems that are "based on Ubuntu", nor for Debian and Raspbian.

For questions with Raspbian you probably better look at https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums or specifically https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=66

Raspian is also based on Debian, not Ubuntu

Hi,

Thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,
Arvind.
