You'd think that CS could set up Java correctly on their fucking linux boxes, wouldn't you? You'd think that it would be a fairly simple matter of sitting down and typing "javac blah.java; java blah" - no. Even very simple things fecked up... something that javac compiled couldnt' be run by java. Why? Because instead of REAL Java, they gave us some instant decaf shite. By that I mean cheap instant decaf shite... Sorry, gcj, which I have NEVER gotten to work properly.
Anyway, until I realised this today, Eclipse had problems. At first I thought it was just classpaths - which fixed some things last week. But while it meant I could run Eclipse, I couldn't do anything interesting like create a new project. Finally I realised that it wasn't just the classpath (originally it tried to run off jakarta classes) that had a problem but the executable. Grrr.
As a result, if people don't realise this and want to do java stuff on their linux account they're screwed... especially if they're second years, because the real java lives on a part of csserver that they can't access - first and third years can, but not second years.
So, CS linux is teh sux0r.
