OpenJDK in OpenSUSE
By barton808 on Jul 18, 2008
What I failed to mention, however, and was right under my very nose was that fact that OpenJDK had already made it into OpenSUSE 11. Thanks to MySQL Euro-community manager and former SUSE employee Lenz Grimmer, I was englightened:
openSUSE has included the Sun JDK for quite a while already. openJDK has been added to openSUSE 11.0 as well and is part of the default distribution (the "oss" section, while the Sun JDK is in the "non-oss" part).
Here are some links to check out:
