Classlib tests don't build on 64-bit linux due to 32-bit J9

                 Key: HARMONY-6376
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6376
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Classlib
         Environment: SVN Revision: 834407
            Reporter: Jesse Wilson
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: strace.txt

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.
