- Hi Vince,That's great! I guess we now need to make this part of our regular build process, are you familiar with our existing build process?K

In any case: both are available for all distros that I know of. It has been thoroughly tested and works perfectly here on both F13.i686 (w/Sun JRE-1.6.0_u23) and F14.i686 (w/OpenJDK), as well as legacy F8.i386 (with JRE-1.6.0_u23). I hope that this can be a "generic" Linux RPM.

I asked the folks at FedoraForum to help test, and the answer appears to be "just fine": http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=257753
Note that the RPM was built on F13.x86.
