Description Gerard Ryan 2015-10-18 21:22:30 UTC
Description of problem:
Parts of eclipse-jbosstools require org.eclipse.tm.terminal.connector.serial.feature, which is currently not being built in the eclipse-tm-terminal package, with the reason (from spec file): '[...] gnu.io dep not available'.

The gnu.io classes are available in the rxtx package, but the relevant OSGi manifest headers don't seem to be there, so I assume that's why they can't be used in this context.

I'm not sure exactly what's needed here. Would injecting the right info into the manifest be enough? Would some other hack be better?

I also found this: rxtx.qbang.org/eclipse/downloads/, which seems to be some other kind of way of distributing it for eclipse (I guess the classes are all the same, but the manifest exports the gnu.io package as desired). Would we need to have an extra package for something like that to get what we need?

Hmm, if rxtx provides everything we need, then yeah it should simply be a case of adding the correct OSGI header into the rxtx jar manifests at build-time so the correct provides/requires can be generated.

A separate package should not be necessary

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

This should now be fixed in rawhide.
