Brice Arnould commented on HADOOP-2325:
---------------------------------------

Have you tried with IcedTea ? It's the JDK I use to build and run Hadoop on my Ubuntu/x86
system. It seems that it have been ported to MacOS 10.4 [1], and that it can be built on PowerPC
[2], but I'm unsure about the combination of the two.

> We should require Java 6 for release 0.17.  Java 6 is now available for OS/X.  Hadoop
performs much better on Java 6.  And, finally, there are features of Java 6 (like 'df') that
would be nice to use.
