Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-01-31 13:31:36 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat installs rt.jar as an alternatives-managed
symlink that points to libgcj-${version}.jar.  But this means that if
rt.jar is present in /usr/lib/jvm/java when java-1.4.2-gcj-compat is
installed, it is silently overwritten.  We'll likely solve this by
making all JPackage SDK packages install rt.jar as a symlink (renaming
their own rt.jar where needed).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install java-1.5.0-sun-compat
2. install java-1.4.2-gcj-compat

Actual Results:  /usr/lib/jvm/java/rt.jar points to libgcj-${version}.jar

Expected Results:  /usr/lib/jvm/java/rt.jar should still be Sun's
rt.jar file.
