JRuby bills itself as platform independent but, starting 1.7.4 it is now
hard-wired for Linux demanding, literally, "/lib/ld-linux.so",
hard-coded!!!!  Adding insult to injury, jruby.sh does not work either.

I visited JRuby JIRA here: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY

It tells me to contact JIRA admins to get access but does not provide
ANY
WAY OF CONTACTING those.

Anyone out there who knows how to tackle a bug of this magnitude in this
strange JRuby world?

Java 7 works fine on SunOS, with any sanity, JRuby should work too. But
it
doesn't.

Uh, it seems to work fine on my Mac :-)

Maybe you could provide a bit more information on how you came
to this conclusion, the platform you're trying to run on, etc.?

The platform, as my original message says, is SunOS. But I got it
working
already: instead of .zip distro which I tried first, now I have the
.tar.gz
and it works just fine. For me, that's case closed.

I saw that -- I was having a hard time imagining running anything
contemporary on an OS last released in 1994  :-)

Actually, I still am!

Hi ,Thats not the question but if the reason to be SunOs its hardware
theres actual Linux distros with good support for Jruby like Debian that
can be run on Sparcs machines. I'm running Jruby on AMD64 and X86
platforms
over Linux with only a path change as post install and runs fine for me.
Also you always have an stable package on Debians main repo thats not
the
edge release but always runs fine and dont need path touching.

Are you saying the .zip distro complained about a missing
"ld-linux.so" file? That's very peculiar; the .zip and .tar.gz
distributions are created roughly at the same time.

I'm not on a very good connection, so I can't confirm the .zip archive
is ok, but if you like you can file an issue here:

Glad to hear you got it working!
