Comment 1 Scott Beamer 2013-09-29 23:18:46 EDT
This also applies to java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel
Comment 2 jiri vanek 2013-09-30 08:40:26 EDT
Yah. Looks wrong
Comment 3 jiri vanek 2013-10-01 09:27:49 EDT
Hm. I was not able to reproduce. After all possible install/remove/update/downgrade the links were still valid. Sorry:(
Comment 4 Serge Matveenko 2013-10-01 10:05:02 EDT
Just reproduced it on the clean F19.x86_64 installation.
Comment 5 jiri vanek 2013-10-01 10:29:27 EDT
On fresh installation the symlik may be broken. But after update?
Comment 6 Serge Matveenko 2013-10-01 11:18:17 EDT
Done "yum distro-sync"

The link "/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64" is broken still.
Comment 7 Alexander Ivanov 2013-10-01 11:39:01 EDT
The link "/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64" is broken still.
Comment 8 jiri vanek 2013-10-01 12:02:27 EDT
May you install also java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel ? It looks like this symlink is in wrong package - should be in devel, as /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk is controlled by devel alternatives.

I installed java-1.7.0-openjdk*, thats why I have not seen the issue. May you verify my suspicions?
Comment 9 Alexander Ivanov 2013-10-01 12:13:34 EDT
Jiri, thanks. After installing java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel symlink is NOT broken
Comment 10 jiri vanek 2013-10-01 12:39:25 EDT
Ok I' have moved the symlink to devel then. It belongs here. Sorry for troubles.
