PKGBUILD for the latest jdk (u66 b17):

I just updated the version, added the new checksums and checked for possible changes against the official repository pkg "jdk8-openjdk".
I compiled it with the default makepkg.conf with no issues :)

NOTE: don't use the "-march=native" flags in your makepkg.conf or it will not work. It should be possible to force it within the PKGBUILD itself using "MAKEFLAGS=" (so to leave the user's own makepkg.conf intact) but I haven't tested it.

Now it's time for me to ask you for a quick update :-P

Thanks, I've merged all changes from the original. I do understand that you might not always have time to do this, though in this case it's better to orphan the package. Maintaining a package for public is a responsibility that you voluntarily have taken once you clicked "adopt" button. Sorry if my tone sounded a bit harsh, I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings there.

I am sorry, I had no time to check the original package. So I now orphaned the package, so anyone can do this for the public, I will do it for me alone when I have time...

chrbayer, it looks like you are not willing to put an effort to maintain this package. Please merge all changes from the original PKGBUILD or just orphan the package.

Oh wait, this one got updated. Though it uses unnecessary patch which was used for u45 version and without patches used for official package. It looks like all maintainer did was just changing the "pkgver" field...

nplatis, this issue appears with any Java application? Try launching Eclipse and check if it uses all your memory either. I'm using Eclipse and Android Studio and never noticed this. The PKGBUILD shouldn't differ from one used for infinality repo, it's basically the official PKGBUILD ( ) with additional patching.

I experience the same as saraivinha with version u51, on Netbeans that I use. The problems disappear if I switch to official version u51 or to infinality version u45 still available on the infinality repo.

Is there any change to get an update? If you don't have time or you lost interest, please orphan the package so that someone else can do this.
