Installation

As root or using sudo on a running gumstix with internet access.

If you don't have internet access on your gumstix, you can download the packages and copy them to the gumstix via usb drive. May take a few goes to get all the dependencies.

first add angstrom repo

echo 'src/gz angstrom-base http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/feeds/unstable/ipk/glibc/armv7a/base'
> /etc/opkg/angstrom-base.conf

Install class path

opkg install classpath
opkg install classpath-dev  

If you need the graphical classes

opkg install classpath-gtk

If you are using graphical classes/gui remember to export the display

export DISPLAY=:0.0

Install cacao vm

opkg install cacao

Install jikes java compiler

opkg install jikes

Install phoneme jvm

If you need a java vm with debuging or remote debugging support or wish to use the phoneme jvm

wget http://bugcommunity.com/downloads/files/phoneme-advanced-personal-debug_mr2-r1_armv6.ipk
opkg install -force-depends phoneme-advanced-personal-debug_mr2-r1_armv6.ipk


Once you have installed it add cvm to your path or create a symbolic link cvm is in /usr/lib/jvm/phoneme-advanced-personal-debug/bin

sudo ln -s  /usr/lib/jvm/phoneme-advanced-personal-debug/bin/cvm /usr/bin/cvm

Set the classpath for Jikes

Set the bootclass path so jikes can find the classes

export BOOTCLASSPATH=/usr/share/cacao/vm.zip:/usr/share/classpath/glibj.zip
