Description Ben Konrath 2005-02-02 17:59:11 EST
Eclipse follows symlinks for classpath libaries but probably shouldn't. This
could potentially cause a problem with the alternatives system and requires the
src.zip for the classpath to be placed in /usr/share/java instead of

Is this a libgcj bug?
Comment 2 Ben Konrath 2005-05-03 23:45:38 EDT
I can't really remember the details around this, so I'll have to re-investigate.
IMO, I think this is a priority problem so I'm going to mark it as such. Feel
free to change the priority back if you don't agree.

Using subclipse, I just got an error because the "Eclipse path" and some other
path didn't match (/home/cygnus/overholt/... vs /home/overholt).  Is this the
same issue or is that a bug in subclipse?
Comment 4 Ben Konrath 2005-12-16 15:05:29 EST
It might be the same issue, I'd have to look investigate to be sure.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
