So i decided after nearly 6 years of running an aircraft noise measuring station (for dfld.de) with Ubuntu to change to Alpine Linux.
This station runs a software on Java and needs RXTX, because the microphone is connected via USB and is read over /dev/ttyUSB0.
What is the problem with this setup?
- RXTX needs a Java which is running on glibc
- Alpine Linux does not run on glibc
./javaash: java: command not foundand this happens even if you are in the right directory and java got the execute bit configured.
Alpine Linux changed to musl:
The homepage is https://www.musl-libc.org/:
There are some workarounds to get applications build with glibc running on Alpine Linux, but i did not get to run my aircraft noise measuring station - i switched to Debian - because i needed a 32bit Linux for my very old UMPC...
