After a lengthy fight, i have the pleasure to tell the list that

a) The Compaq JDK 1.3.1 for Linux/Alpha works on FreeBSD under /compat/linux

b) If this e-mail reaches the list, it works sufficiently well to run
Tomcat 4.0.4b2 as i am sending it from the Tomcat sample sendmail.jsp

The install is rather rough but goes as follows

A) Install linux_compat-7
B) Install lesstiff-0.9.3 (Could not get the ICS Openmotif lib to work on real Linux either!?) (compaq java expects but lesstiff is sufficiently compatible for most tasks, so a symlink to will suffice)
C) Install compaq libots and compaq cpml
D) build the and libraries by hand with linux_devel OR build them on a real linux-alpha machine (perhaps we could host pre-built ones somewhere)
E) Install the J2SDK rpm
F) Edit /compat/linux/usr/java/jdk1.3.1/bin/java to use /compat/linux/bin/sh and
G) Enjoy

Will post further details as they appear


BTW, The experiment is being done on an AS 2100 A that is unable to run linux! running 4.5-RELEASE
