Hi, All!

I followed the instructions as best I could.  I now get ...


[idnopheq@roshomon:/compat/linux/usr/java/jdk1.3.1/bin]$ ./java -version
/usr/compat/linux/usr/java/jdk1.3.1/bin/alpha/native_threads/java: error
while loading shared libraries:
undefined symbol: __setfpe_mode


I think I blew step D below with linux-devel.  Any thoughts?

And to ask the question in advance, how then does one tie it into
Netscape 4.78 installed (the OSF/1 port)?
