I sent it to the classpath group, because I want to contribute to GNU
classpath. I was advised by cbj to setup a development environment by
making GNU classpath work with kissme. Anyway, I found what was wrong and
I'm cc'ing to gnu-classpath mailing list also just to close this thread.
(sorry Stephen).

I've done this (of-course, I'm an RTFM believer :)). The solution seems 
to me very strange though.

Well I've tried ALL possible configure combinations ... that was the latest
version :). I could understand they were uneeded, but I was desperate.

Yes, that's what I meant; my CLASSPATH was right from the beggining.

Ok, now this is *very* strange. I thought that was the last thing I had to look,
as I had put right from the beggining in "/etc/" the path of the
GNU classpath libraries. Everything seemed right as "ldconfig -v" would say:
/home/jgeorgal/JDE/lib/classpath: -> -> -> -> -> ->
<snip> no need for LD_LIBRARY_PATH (I thought). In fact setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH
to /path/to/lib/classpath, made ALL my problems disappear...

Well, it can't be ldconfig's fault as I had not any problems before.
Can it be kissme's problem?


 Thank you very much Stephen and John for your help,
