Subject Re: Error starting modern compiler
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2004 15:49:43 GMT
I am using Mandrake Linux 10. Java version 1.4.2_04-b05. Java HotSpot client 
VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode). I did install Ant from the mandrake 
linux distribution, as I dint find it in the standard Mandrake install. the 
version I have is: apache Ant 1.6.2 compiled on July 16, 2004. doing 'which 
ant' and 'ant -verison' just gives me the version 1.6.2 so I assume I dont 
have any other ant verison installed.
