Is this with a fres install of the FC-development tree?

Comment 3 Florian La Roche 2005-10-25 10:58:14 UTC
fres -> fresh

Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2005-10-25 20:42:54 UTC
Did you have any additional java packages installed - particularly those using
alternatives from JPackage.

If you have a different alternative selected /usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db is not
there which is *not* an RPM bug.

Comment 6 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-10-25 20:57:29 UTC
Yes, I use jpackage, with the Sun Javac.
I see rebuild-gcj-db appear when gcj is chosen.

However, I don't see how that's not a bug - sure looks like one to me. I see
scripts failing, duplicate packages being left in the rpm database, and
unnecessary confusion that the end user should not be subjected to. 

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2005-10-26 16:10:10 UTC
If the scripts fail on removal, the package is left installed by design.

Comment 8 Paul Nasrat 2005-10-26 17:30:35 UTC
Gary - if people have switched to a non gcj java package the slave symlink will
not be present.  Perhaps the %post packages should use the full path to the
file, or the script should not be controlled by alternatives.

Comment 9 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-10-27 04:37:48 UTC
No, rebuild-gcj-db should never have been made an alternative.  We need to
create a separate java-gcj-compat-scripts package that java-1.4.2-gcj-compat
depends on and that depends on jpackage-utils.  In that package we should put
all these gcj-specific scripts.  If no one beats me to it, I'll do this next
week; there are many duplicates filed for this issue.
