I'm using Alpha2Plus (Factory). The page above does not work, nor other

that I have screwed up on my machine. I have tried java 1.5.0u11 and 1.4.2
from distribution and java 1.6 from java.sun.com
. None of these work.
moment, no graphical Java application works due to implementation
errors in SUN Java ( https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=252510
Only work around working at the moment is to use
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1.0.0 DISPLAY=:0 <application>
and this only with version SUN Java 1.4.2, 1.4.2 gcj-compat or 1.4.2 cacao.
If you use one of the latter two (which will not work too well), only
konqueror will be possible as a browser. You need to close all konqueror
instances and start konqueror from an xterm:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1.0.0 DISPLAY=:0 konqueror
If you use SUN Java 1.4.2 you can use firefox as well
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1.0.0 DISPLAY=:0 firefox
This bug is really annoying, but we can't do anything from our side, as it is
a problem occuring in the JRE, which is binary only.
