Native libraries on older os's causing cores/crashes

(George) #1

Is gradle going to continue down the road of using native libraries? I have to compile on older machines, Sles10 for now. But anyone who has to use Centos 5 is going to hit the same issue. There may be other OS’s. I can’t use 3.4+ due to libnative-platform using newer versions of gcc. jansi cores the jdk. I can get around the jansi issue with --console plain, which isn’t ideal. A native library just to make a color console?

3.0 works fine, but I can’t upgrade from there due to the native libraries. I thought this was the point of using java, so it runs everywhere, not runs most places.
