Java on Manjaro ARM Pinebook Pro
#1
Hello all!
I just got my PineBook Pro in the mail and have been getting used to Manjaro (I have been a regular user of Ubuntu/Debian before). I want to install Java so I can code and work in Java projects using the PBP, however the arm architecture has allegedly been causing me some issues. I installed YAY and did yay -S jdk and then chose jre11, but I get the following warning: the following packages are not compatible with your architechture: jre11. Should I try to build them anyway? Any help is welcome, I figured I would ask others who have succeeded in installing java, with its necessary jdk and jre, on your PBPs.
  • Should I be trying to install JRE11?
  • What jdk should I get?
  • Any other things that will be necessary to get java development up and running on my PBP?
Any help is welcome, thank you very much for your time.

Cheers from Portugal!

when yay asked you that question, did you tell it yes? a quick look at some other similar forums indicates you should be able to get this installed, but you'll need to build it

Thank you for your reply.
I did not tell it yes, since I wanted to be sure and ask people with more experience beforehand. I will go ahead and say yes, no clue on how to go on to building it. I installed vscodium from the AUR through yay I believe and it took a while, lots of choices in between, I presume it should be something similar? Will report back with further info. Thank you again!

That is one thing to love about yay, it will build it for you (if it can.) it's very useful for all kinds of software (but not all) that may not have proper aarch64 support. it's always worth a shot whenever it asks! Hope it builds for you!
