Re: [alpine-user] Trouble Installing Oracle Java

Thanks for the info.  Since Oracle Java is not required over OpenJdk which I see is available from aports/community, I think I'll just go with that and scrap the Oracle Java.

well, as far as I can tell, this symbol is missing in the musl libc used by
alpine linux. So I guess you have the following options:

* use a method described here [1]
* use gcompat [2], [3], [4] (which is the preferred way according to some IRC
talks I remember)
* use this glibc package [5] (which is NOT recommended by the IRC people, but

[2] (their certificate expired last night,
obviously no one monitored that, so if you are concerned, use the GitHub mirror)
[3] (the GitHub mirror)
[5] (NOT recommended)

PS: Make sure to keep the mailing list in cc ;)
