It would be interesting to distribute a version of RxTx with the debug constants set to 'true'.
Linux,AMD 64, & 2.2
Adding a note that you may need the 2.2 pre-release if your running 64 bit may save some people a bit of time. I wasn't able to get any of the stable releases working on Ubuntu 9.04
MacOS Snow Leopard
RXTX 2.2pre is needed for MacOS Snow Leopard os.version 10.6 and above.

The issue is that this version does not work with MacOS 10.4 - there the stable version is needed...
It is fairly difficult (maybe impossible) to get a single setup for webstart.
Would it be possible to provide/implement/explain a way to have the nativelib selection done partly in the Java code itself while providing several native libs through webstarts.
By the way, the error is:
"Symbol not found: _open$UNIX2003"
