I cannot install the Netbeans-5.5 Enterprise Pack Preview on FreeBSD
6-STABLE. Downloading and installing the Linux distribution of the
Netbeans-5.5 IDE Beta itself went smoothly (as it usually does with
Linux packages on FreeBSD). But the Enterprise Pack preview refuses to
accept that the Diablo Java VM available at
with a version string output of
freebsd$ java -version
java version "1.5.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build diablo-1.5.0_06-b00, mixed mode)
Is a "JDK 1.5.0 Update 1.0 or newer" Java VM. I think the version
parsing information in the installer is a bit confused, but I can't seem
to find a way to bypass it.
The same problem occurs with a locally built 1.5.0 from SCSL source
through the FreeeBSD ports mechanism.
One of the great virtues of Netbeans is its 100% Java philosophy,
meaning that "marginal" hardware/OS platforms can easily come to the
table by utilizing its own resources to distribute a certified JDK. The
FreeBSD community has gone through considerable exertions to undertake
such an effort.
Any ideas how to get the Enterprise Pack Preview to install? Should I
file a bug with Netbeans?
Thanks for any help,
