    Running 9.0-STABLE. Installed openjdk7. Want this to work as a plugin on firefox. Tried to install icedtea-web. It wants openjdk6 and that install fails. Don't want openjdk6 anyway.

    Tried pkg_add -r icedtea-web but the package is not available.

    Any suggestions?

    The port requires a specific version:
    Code:
    JAVA_VENDOR=	openjdk
    JAVA_VERSION=	1.6
    


    But wasn't icedtea-web already part of openjdk7?

    Looks like the icedtea-web port is for 1.2? Am I just out of luck until version 2.x is available as a port? What is icedtea6-stubs about?

    It would appear so. You can try to repo-copy the 1.2 port, change it and see if it'll work for 2.x
    I have no idea :e

    Hello.

    Here they talk about OpenJDK7 support on IcedTea-Web 1.2. I tried a little how to change OpenJDK 6 to 7, but it always looks for the 6 version. Did someone get IcedTea-Web 1.2 to work on OpenJDK7?

    Cheers.
