Description Andreas Thienemann 2005-06-16 20:26:57 UTC
During a test rebuild of ecj-2.1.3-5 in the mock builder, the following
problem manifests itself:

+ find -name '*.class' -or -name '*.properties' -or -name '*.rsc'
+ xargs jar cf ../../../ecj-2.1.3.jar
xargs: jar: No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.45084 (%build)

The reason is, that the Required libgcj installs fastjar, but doesn't set up the
correct symlink with the alternatives system.
This is done by the java-$ver-compat package, which is not being installed.

According to nasrat the best way of dealing with this issue is dropping the
BuildRequires for gcc-java and libgcj and just setting a BuildRequire for
java-$ver-compat, or even better the virtual java-devel package which is
provided by the java-compat package. This will fix the alternatives problem and
pull in gcj and libgcj as well.

This bug is at least present in RHEL4, FC4, FC3 and current RawHide. Bugs were
filed for these releases as well.

Comment 1 Andreas Thienemann 2005-06-16 20:28:17 UTC
sorry. fc4 is not affected. again copy-n-waste... :(

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-06-17 14:56:09 UTC
Why not just change the xargs line to use fastjar?

Comment 3 Andreas Thienemann 2005-06-17 15:29:19 UTC
That might be a possibility, but would mean that the alternatives system is

Comment 4 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-02-04 01:03:10 UTC
The standalone ecj package is obsolete and eclipse-ecj bootstraps fine.  Closing.
