Jesse Wilson updated HARMONY-6376:

    Attachment: strace.txt

strace of the "java" program built and running on x86_64. I'm unsure how much utility this
will have...

> Following the instructions from our RUNNING-TESTS.txt file leads one to download an evaluation
build of IBM's J9 VM. That VM is available for 32-bit x86 Linux.  Unfortunately, the script
compiles x86_64 Linux libraries that are incompatible with the x86 Linux VM. The result is
when starting the VM ("java") the process hangs:
> Can we ask the fine J9 folks at IBM to provide an x86_64 Linux binary for Harmony development?
> One workaround is to use a 32-bit operating system, which will work even on x86_64 hardware.
Another workaround is to build Harmony in VMware or VirtualBox.
