	I just tried running it on OpenJDK on a Rawhide install (probably
pretty close to what F8 will be).  So far no luck.  Lots and lots of
errors.

	Here is what I do to get Alfresco running on F8:

	o Download Sun's jdk1.6.0 rpm
	o Get the jpackage 1.6.0 compat rpm
	o Get alfresco-community-war-2.1.0.tar.gz
	o untar it
	o cd into the untar'd directory
	o cp alfresco.war /var/lib/tomcat/webapps
	o mysql  < ./extras/databases/mysql/db_setup.sql
	o mkdir -p /var/lib/alfresco/alf_data/

	o startup tomcat

Once it runs, you'll get errors.  That's okay, just fix the paths:

vim /var/lib/tomcat5/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/repository.properties

Fix the dir.root to point to the new directory we created:
dir.root=/var/lib/alfresco/alf_data


vim /var/lib/tomcat5/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties

Fix the log file path:
log4j.appender.File.File=/var/log/tomcat5/alfresco.log


	o Make sure tomcat loads the mysql driver:
 
'sh# rebuild-jar-repository /var/lib/tomcat5/common/endorsed
mysql-connector-java'

	Restart tomcat and it should now run just fine.  I have not created a
startup script for OpenOffice.  You'll notice that Alfresco will try to
connect to it and fail if it's not running.  It will continue to load
without OpenOffice.

PS.  Here is a part of the first error when I try to run it under
openjdk (icetea):
