Description Paul W. Frields 2008-08-30 13:08:26 EDT

PDF building fails with an indecipherable error without java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel installed.  It's possible this is someone else's problem, but publican may need to require this package.

Publican does not require a java devel package to function properly.

This issues seems to occur when you have a different version of the sdk active than the jre you have active.

To clarify, if you hava an SDK installed and the two following commands do not reflect the same java version this error can occur:

alternatives --config java

alternatives --config javac

Cheers, Jeff.

Interesting!  Maybe this would be a worthwhile addition to publican-doc?

Added FAQ entry to explain why JRE and JDK versions must match and how to check.
