Robert Lougher have updated JamVM to work on the new Raspberry PI armhf "Raspbian" image, thank you Robert! You can compile and test this latest JamVM version from source on a Raspberry PI by running the following lines inside a terminal:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk git libtool autoconf automake

git clone git:// jamvm

cd jamvm

./ --with-java-runtime-library=openjdk6


mkdir /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-armhf/jre/lib/arm/jamvm

sudo cp src/.libs/ /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-armhf/jre/lib/arm/jamvm/

sudo sed -i 's#-jamvm ERROR#-jamvm KNOWN#' /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-armhf/jre/lib/arm/jvm.cfg

java -jamvm -version

java version "1.6.0_24"OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.3) (6b24-1.11.3-2+rpi1)

JamVM (build 1.6.0-devel, inline-threaded interpreter with stack-caching)

I have update IcedTea6 1.12 and IcedTea7 2.3 release branches to include this updated version of JamVM. Distributions like Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu/Arch and Raspbian will get this new work when they update IcedTea to include the next IcedTea release or security update. This is the first JamVM + OpenJDK update in 2012, this update also include support for JamVM to run the QT-Jambi GUI toolkit.
