Comment 1 David Strauss 2014-01-28 23:48:34 UTC
Nothing seems to provide /usr/lib/jvm/jre-openjdk/bin/java, too. Installing either the Java 7 or Java 8 OpenJDK/JRE packages doesn't make it work.

Comment 2 jiri vanek 2014-01-29 15:19:49 UTC
When you are mentioning jdk8, then I bet
is the cause.

Comment 3 jiri vanek 2014-01-29 15:25:59 UTC
end selinux case also is second bet:
(with cause in

Comment 4 David Strauss 2014-01-30 23:21:31 UTC
I'm not really sure what's causing my issue, but it's extremely easy to reproduce on a 100% default Fedora installation from the Live CD.

Comment 5 jiri vanek 2014-01-31 08:45:31 UTC
Whats an output of your " alternatives   --config java" command?

Comment 6 David Strauss 2014-02-05 21:48:55 UTC
From a completely clean Fedora 20 installation with these packages: java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel icedtea-web

[straussd@zeus ~]$ alternatives   --config java

There are 2 programs which provide 'java'.

  Selection    Command
*+ 1           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-
   2           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64/bin/java

Comment 7 jiri vanek 2014-02-12 07:45:02 UTC

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:43:32 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
