I had a difficulty with scilab, it would not plot! an would give me error 21. and crash.!
I could not figure it out.
I tried to install from source. and this is where real trouble came
./configure crashed with the following error
checking Symlink for /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj/bin/javac… Filename changed… Keeping the one found before
Java base directory (probably) available here : /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj
checking for zip or jar files to include on CLASSPATH…
checking to see if the java compiler works… configure: error: Could not compile simple Java program with ‘/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj/bin/javac’. Try with the Sun JDK (1.5 or 6).
I changed to the directory to find this
alon@linux-6xrt:~/Downloads> cd /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj/bin/
appletviewer jarsigner javac javah rmic
jar java javadoc keytool rmiregistry
It seems that the java compiler does not work?
I installed javacc…
No avail, any ideas?
how to make ./configure work? Is there a java compiler somewhere else I could use?
