I have a virtual server account with all of this stuff http://servers.digitaldaze.com/
the problem is I don't have root access and I am told that you can install java version 1.2.2 or greater with out root on this server. ... I have run into many problems along the way, one being
===> linux-jdk-1.3.1.03 : Your system is too old to use this bsd.port.mk. You need a fresh make world or an upgrade kit. Please go to http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/
or a mirror site and follow the instructions.
which was solved by replacing the expected version in the bsd.port.mk file which i had installed under my $HOME/usr/ports/MK .... etc .... now when i build i'm getting an error saying it can not write to the /var/db/...... folder which is owned by root...... Now i don't care if i emmulate linux jdk or build native threads but I need some version of java available 1.2.2 or greater to run tomcat for my web services which you will notice is not listed in the pre-installed packages in the link at the top. I'd prefer to install this with out root access. My other option is to pay the hosting company to do a custom install for $$$. thanks for the help in advance.
