Description Ian Collier 2010-07-08 10:34:03 UTC
Created attachment 430293 [details] Output displayed by "yum update" Description of problem: A recent update pulled in some new gcc packages. This update caused the trigger script from java-1.5.0-gcj-devel to output some error messages and install some incorrect symlinks. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): java-1.5.0-gcj-devel-18.104.22.168-29.fc12.x86_64 How reproducible: You can only install the updates once, but it happened on several different machines during their Thursday morning update. Steps to Reproduce: 1. yum -y update 2. ls -l /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj-22.214.171.124/include Actual results: 1. Updating : gcc-java-4.4.4-10.fc12.x86_64 58/136 gcj: libgcj.spec: No such file or directory dirname: missing operand Try `dirname --help' for more information. gcj: libgcj.spec: No such file or directory dirname: missing operand Try `dirname --help' for more information. gcj: libgcj.spec: No such file or directory dirname: missing operand Try `dirname --help' for more information. gcj: libgcj.spec: No such file or directory dirname: missing operand Try `dirname --help' for more information. Updating : libtool-2.2.6-18.fc12.1.x86_64 59/136 2. total 8 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root bin 49 2010-07-08 10:44 jawt.h -> usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj-126.96.36.199/include/jawt.h lrwxrwxrwx 1 root bin 48 2010-07-08 10:44 jni.h -> usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj-188.8.131.52/include/jni.h drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-07-08 10:44 linux Expected results: 1. no error messages 2. total 8 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root bin 53 Jul 8 11:18 jawt.h -> ../../../gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.4/include/jawt.h lrwxrwxrwx 1 root bin 52 Jul 8 11:18 jni.h -> ../../../gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.4/include/jni.h drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jul 8 11:18 linux Additional info: I'm not sure what causes this, because (now the updates have completed) the file libgcj.spec is present and the trigger script (when run manually) works properly. I guess it has something to do with the order in which updates take place and/or with overlap between the x86_64 and i686 packages. For this reason I'll attach the full output of yum showing the order of installation.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-11-03 12:18:19 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '12'. 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 prior to Fedora 12's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 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 please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. 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. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 13:25:26 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

I am guessing this was a one time issue on F12. It is not still happening is it?
Comment 4 Ian Collier 2010-12-03 16:56:56 UTC
I've let this drop because it's difficult to reproduce and depends upon some combination of package versions which isn't supported any more now that F12 is dropped, so it's hardly likely to happen any more. But, for the record, I did once see this message after upgrading an old Fedora machine to F14 and doing the online updates.
