To use it/try it you should have at least PHSS_33033 (actual is PHSS_33035), a linker patch, and the kernel parameters maxssiz set to >= 16MB.

Why the maxssiz requirement?

Well, when compiling the libjava files, the jc1 consumes lots of memory. I remember that this failed for me. I had a very weird default maxsize of 83570688. Reducing this value to 8MB helped, but then I was not able to run gdb. I always got messages like this:


--
Pid 20872 received a SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.
Possible causes: insufficient memory or swap space,
or stack size exceeded maxssiz.

Playing around with maxssize gave me the value of 16MB, also Dave told me has a similar setting. So I thought it would be a good advise to give.
