This is handled in the source build of the JDK in the BLFS book. I'm
not in a position to check the installed binary version right this
second. If this is not done on the binary installation, it should be
done. 'ln -sf motif21/libmawt.so /opt/jdk/jdk/jre/lib/i386' You chose
the wrong copy of libmawt.so. An 'ls -l' on both should tell you
enough, if not take a closer look at the symbols.
rm -f /opt/jdk/jdk/jre/lib/i386/libmawt.so &&
ln -sf motif21/libmawt.so /opt/jd/jdk/jre/lib/i386

What flavor and version of X and glibc? Did you use the patch set in
the BOOK? Any additional patches?

Yes it is. It would seems like a KDE configuration issue...but I'm
We'll take it one step at a time. Fix the jre lib and, though unlikely,
see if any of the others clean up for you.
