OpenJRE or OpenJDK

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

OpenJRE or OpenJDK

Post#1 by libernux » 05 Sep 2012, 16:58

Hi all,

Slackware is migrating to OpenJRE and OpenJDK because of licence restrictions.
For all of you who also want to migrate please check the following link:

Alien Bob has done an excellent job.
His packages work on Porteus.
I was born with nothing and I still got most of it.

Hello,

If AlienBob made a new package, this should be a question of days before to get new version of OpenJXX on porteus repository.

We just need to wait that Fanthom see this topic :)

Thanks!

Yes but this is only the JRE-module.
Also the Rhino-package is not available in Porteus.

You should post your module request on both topics dedicated to this.

For 32bit module : "Must have apps" - 32bit official repo requests

For 64bit module : "Must have apps" - 64bit official repo requests

Thanks

For me it is no problem because i got the packages from the link in the topic start.
Because Porteus is based on Slackware i assumed that Porteus would follow this development.
So for me there was no need to do a module request.
