IcedTea-Web plug-in running on ARM

Thanks to great work by Chris Phillips and others, we now have a Zero based OpenJDK7 RPM building on Fedora ARM

Peter Robinson (Fedora project volunteer) then started an icedtea-web build on ARM based on the above, which went fine.

I decided to try icedtea-web with OpenJDK7 on ARM. I only had access to an F15 machine so I had to force install the F17 OpenJDK RPM (it works other than where -lpng would be needed). Here is the result — the IcedTea-Web plug-in running with Midori on Fedora ARM!

Now to wait for Andrew Haley’s JIT work to go in, to make it run faster :)
