Using Blackdown


Azureus is an open-source P2P-Client which uses the bittorrent technology. If you want to install Azureus an error occurs caused by a wrong Java version. This How-To should help you to get Azureus working with Java.


First you have to download a file from the official java-site: Download the J2SE v 1.4.2 documentation file named and place it in /usr/portage/distfiles:

cp ~/ /usr/portage/distfiles

Install Azureus

To install the Java 1.4* Enviroment just type into the console:

emerge -av =virtual/jdk-1.4*

Tip: To get the latest version of Azureus unmask the unstable Version with:
echo "net-p2p/azureus ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
Note: If you have an amd64-arch PC you have to change "~x86" to "~amd64"

Now you are ready to emerge Azureus and compile it:

emerge -av net-p2p/azureus

Now you should be able to run Azureus without problems.
