i have told you, that with jdk14 it's working good, i'm using libkse threads and i think it's faster then on linux.

Can you, please, describe a little, how i can use it?
As i can see - i must rebuild JDK again and link it using libkse library instead of default.
But rebuilding and linking is too long time for me, "make install" for jdk1.4.2p5 was done in 10 hours...
Maybe i did something wrong

Hello,

You can run any application in freebsd dinamicaly with any thread library using libmap.conf read the manual for more details on enable this on your box.
For me was like this:
1. insert the following line in /etc/make.conf
WITH_LIBMAP=YES
2. do a make clean in src/libexec/rtld-elf and make
all install
3. create /etc/libmap.conf and insert the example from man and the following lines for my java from idea's jre:


libc_r.so.5 libkse.so.1
libc_r.so libkse.so

I need all of these steps becouse i'm running freebsd-current, if you have freebsd-stable you have /etc/libmap.conf and you don't need to make step 2, you need only to append to /etc/libmap.conf the lines for your java.

Hope i was clear, if not i'm available for more questions.
