Description Warren Togami 2005-05-22 17:35:21 EDT
Description of problem:
openoffice.org-core-1.9.104-1 is incompatible with the latest gcc-4.0.0-8 stack
in dist-fc4, causing a dependency clash and upgrade failure.  This is a FC4Blocker.

What changed and why?
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2005-05-22 19:33:49 EDT
Umm, gcc-4.0.0-8 changed the AWT library from libjawt.so -> libgcjawt.so because
proprietary VMs use libjawt and gcj shouldn't clash with them.  While
libgcjawt.so supposedly gets symlinked to libjawt.so, OOo currently relies upon

So, OOo uses a JAVA_HOME variable to point to the base of the JDK.  Well, for
GCJ that's "/usr" because that's where bin/java and bin/javac are rooted from. 
However, that's _not_ where the rest of the java libraries are...  We should
probably be pointing at "/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj-" now, but that may
clash with assumptions scattered around the code that were made before the
java-gcj-compat packages were developed.

I'm trying a build pointed to the new location, we'll see how it goes.

This should be marked as duplicate of bug #158411.

And yes, I'm seeing it too :-(

Comment 4 Dan Williams 2005-05-23 16:46:39 EDT
A fix for the gcjawt library is in CVS, and a new copy of OOo is building now to
fix some utter berkeleydb stupidity (which was blocking the rebuild this weekend).
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-23 19:22:56 EDT
Package is building now.

Comment 7 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-05-24 10:34:37 EDT
In response to Comment #1:

On the compile line that specifies -ljawt, add (or modify the existing -L to be):

Comment 8 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-05-24 16:02:31 EDT
Actually, this should be: -L%{_jvmdir}/jre/lib/%{_arch}, since only
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat may be installed (and not java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-devel).

But looking at the spec file, you've linked directly to libgcjawt.so, which is
fine too.
Comment 9 Warren Togami 2005-05-24 16:40:46 EDT
I copied binaries here for i386 for testing.
