The java article seems only to refer to a PPC version of java from IBM. Anyone get java running on the MIPS LS2?

I know some linux, but not enough to know where to start in that case, and I am considering getting a new LS which I assume would be the MIPS one - might be a bad assumption, but I want to be covered just in case.

Any insight would be much appreciated.

this page can be helpfull for you:
http://java-virtual-machine.net/other.html

blackdown is listed with MIPS support, but on the project page there is no MIPS Port mentioned.
thats sad, because it is the official linux port from java.

so there are Kaffe + SableVM...both are "Java Virtual Machines" and can be compiled from sourcecode...but they may couse some problems as they lack some key features that might be needed for the applications that you may want to run. But they seem to be an alternative.

Thanks mindbender. My app will definitely require many of the modern services of java, so I don't think that approach will work out for me in that case.

I'm thinking another approach is to ensure that I get a PPC version. Is there a table somewhere that describes which model numbers use what hardware?

Thanks.

100 mbit: Linkstation 1 (ppc) - Linkstation 2(mips)
99% probability that you would get a LS2 (mips)

Gigabit: Linkstation HG + Linkstation HS -> ppc
100 % that you get ppc ;)


and just4info:
Future Version(not released in Europe and USA): Linkstation Pro - will be based on ARM
but seems to have much better performance than the older versions

drawback -> no printserver, no sleeptimer, no OpenLink, no FreeLink

Aha, its probably worth the extra $50 or so then for the gigabit in that case...

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Just FYI, I have an HG and put Java on it, specifically to attempt running Azureus under VNC. It runs, but it reduces the LS to a complete crawl. (not surprising :) )

Also you may want to consider a KuroBox they are all PowerPC. They even have a short bit on installing Java wrapped up in a article on installing Galleon http://kurobox.com/mwiki/index.php/Debian_Galleon_Media_Server
