In installing OpenJDK-188.8.131.52/IcedTea-2.4.3 I've got to the BLFS book's
section "Configuring OpenJDK". I'm confused by the instructions.
The 1st instruction says:
There are now two OpenJDK SDKs installed in /opt. You should decide on
which one you would like to use as the default. For example if you
decide to use the precompiled OpenJDK, do the following as the root user:
ln -v -nsf OpenJDK-184.108.40.206-bin /opt/jdk
The 2nd instruction contains the line "JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk".
The 3rd instruction has several references to "opt/jdk".
The 4th instruction has the line "cd /opt/jdk".
So these instructions assume that somewhere in the instructions above,
the directory "/opt/jdk" has been created. But nowhere above do I see
that directory being created.
The 1st instruction has you create a link that I don't understand. Since
I want to use the COMPILED OpenJDK, I did not execute the "ln" command.
After things did not work, I experimented and did this:
ln -v -nsf OpenJDK-220.127.116.11 /opt/jdk
This created a link in /opt/jdk: "OpenJDK-18.104.22.168 -> OpenJDK-22.214.171.124"
which I don't understand.
What's going wrong?
