OpenBSD Sun version was a bit outdated on OpenBSD (plug-in) but rock solid when I needed. On the another hand I am not serious Java consumer.

I tried to use Iced Tea plugin and Sun via Linux emulation- it didn't work- I was even posting that to pkgsrc mailing list. Pity but I must have working Sun java plugin as the applet is made to use only Sun (openjdk is not yet compatibile with Sun Java and therefore the problems). Nevermind- this can wait.

Pjoter, I am a Serb. I am alway ready for a war
And I am Polish Oko- this means something

t was just funny that you made a very strongly worded recommendation for FreeBSD over OpenBSD without
Yes but without intention to flamewar etc. Simply FreeBSD gives a better and more support- the same for packages- this is obvious.

Let's see how it goes with port creation.

Here is an example how to create port from scratch- frankly, if you read Makefile, etc from some working port you should be able to understand how to create a port.

Please see general pkgsrc guide:

There is also pkgsrc available in pdf:

For current sources please always go here (aslo you can find packages for different pkgsrc/NetBSD version):

I think this is all how can I help you.

Good luck and if you succeed post your port to pkgsrc wip:

Good luck !
