I am new to this mailing list and using Jikes.

I was wondering if anybody has successfully used Jikes with Simics (System simulator)….(if so what was the environment used).

I was trying to run spec benchmarks using Jikes on Simics (which has Red hat Linux 7.3 booted on top of it)….but am running into errors ….


The issue:

I have compiled Jikes (rvm) outside the simulator and I use it from within the sim by mounting the host file system….

But it complains about


libc.so.6: version ‘GLIBC_2.3.2’ not found … apparently my host system which is a later version of linux (than 7.3 on Simics) comes with GLIBC_2.3.2’ but the older version has GLIBC_2.1’ and hence the error.

One option here is to compile Jikes with older version of Linux which has GLIB_2.1….. I am not sure how to do that ….


Has anyone run into this problem before.

Any suggestions would be of great help.
