Re: success with gnopernicus 0.8.4 Gnome 2.6 in Debian

Hi, Kenny.
I haven't noticed a difference in stability with or without the java sdk and
access bridge installed, but as soon as I finish upgrading my servers to
Fedora Core 3 I'll be sure to compare notes on how gnopernicus and gnome 2.8
operate with the java stuff installed compared to a stock Fedora system with
no java sdks and access bridge installed.
As for Mozilla it does not require java. All it requires is the stock Gnome
libraries to be accessible.
However, the problem comes in if you are like me and you like to work with
Star Office and Open Office where the java access stuff is important for
getting access to those particular apps as well as any other swing based
java app.
