Description Akemi Yagi 2013-01-14 14:57:57 UTC
Description of problem:
In RHEL 5.9, installing tomcat5 (tomcat5-5.5.23-0jpp.37.el5) pulls in java-1.7.0-ibm-devel (1: IF the supplementary-5 repository is enalbed. However, without the supplementary repo set up, tomcat5 pulls in java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-devel instead. In this case starting tomcat5 fails as seen in /var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out :

Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/share/tomcat5
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/share/tomcat5
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/share/tomcat5/temp

No additional minor releases are planned for Production Phase 2 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore Red Hat is closing this bugzilla as it does not meet the inclusion criteria as stated in:
