My OpenJDK8 does not build, why? I get an “Http: Error 404: Not Found”.
There has been a change to the address to mercurial repo for openjdk8, its changed from hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/tl to http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8
jdk8 Updates are available from http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8u/jdk8u
All hg clone commands should use the latter address, a solution to the problem can be found below under Download source by running... (
I get an “HTTP Error 404: Not Found” when downloading sources (when I run ./get_sources.sh) for the various repos
Edit all the .hg/hgrc file in the root repo ($HOME/SOURCE/jdk8_tl) along with those in repos hotspot, jaxws, jaxp, corba, nashorn, jdk, langtools, and change all references to .../tl/... to .../jdk8/… For example, change the below setting,
default = hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/tl/hotspot
default = http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8/hotspot
in the hotspot repo, and save the file. Rename the jdk8_tl folder to jdk8:
$ cd .. $ mv jdk8_tl jdk8
- or -
$ cd .. $ mv jdk8_tl jdk8_tl_backup $ hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8 $ cd jdk8 $ chmod u+x get_source.sh $ ./get_source.sh $ bash configure
When the above steps work, remove the backup folder with
$ rm -fr jdk8_tl_backup
All references to jdk8_tl will change to jdk8.
