    Java 8 SE Embedded download - which version for my RPi?

    stainsb

      One thing I struggle with is knowing which download for my RPi. 

       

      I keep reading I should use the hard floating point version.  That said, here's the only Java 8 SE Embedded version I see with HardFP:  ARMv7 Linux - VFP, HardFP ABI, Little Endian1

       

      On my RPi, here's the output from "uname -a"

      > Linux bsrpi 3.10.34+ #661 PREEMPT Thu Mar 27 00:36:02 GMT 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

       

      Will the HardFP version on the download page work on my RPi?   It appears to be arm6. 


      The only thing I see available with ARMv6 is:  ARMv6/7 Linux - VFP, SoftFP ABI, Little Endian2

       

      If you have the answer or even refer me to a good site that explains the differences, I'd be very grateful.  If not, I'll just keep pulling out my hair!  :-)

       

      Thanks for any help you have,
