Description Jiri Moskovcak 2011-09-06 07:44:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When jvm crashes it creates the hs_error_<pid>.log file in the current working directory with some information which are helpful for developers when fixing the crash. In order to attach these log files to ABRT reports we need them to be saved somewhere else than $HOME because abrt daemon doesn't have access to home (because of security and nfs with root squash). I would propose /var/tmp as it's readable by abrtd, writeable by non-root users and it's auto-cleaned. When this is done every jvm crash reported by ABRT will automatically include this file, which should help java devels deal with ABRT reports much easier.

The best way to fix this is still being evaluated.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

This patch is now part of java-1.7.0-openjdk packages that is the default JDK for Fedora systems and java-1.6.0-openjdk is no longer available for Fedoras.
