Description Panu Matilainen 2005-10-26 04:41:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
libgcj4-devel package doesn't include .so symlinks to the actual libraries, which causes builds to miserably fail.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build something with gcj4 (OOo2 based on FC-devel spec in this case)


Actual Results:  ...
checking for JAWT_GetAWT in -lgcjawt... no

Expected Results:  It should find the library...

Additional info:

Adding the following symlinks manually appears to fix it:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s libgcj.so.6.0.0 libgcj.so
ln -s libgcjawt.so.6.0.0 libgcjawt.so
ln -s libgij.so.6.0.0 libgij.so
ln -s lib-gnu-java-awt-peer-gtk.so.6.0.0 lib-gnu-java-awt-peer-gtk.so

They are in the gcc-java package:
rpm -qplv gcc-java-3.4.4-2.i386.rpm | grep '\.so'
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               43 Jul 25 06:51
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.3/lib-gnu-java-awt-peer-gtk.so ->
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               33 Jul 25 06:51
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.3/lib-org-w3c-dom.so ->

Oh, ok .. I only looked at libgcj4-devel since that's where they are in FC4
packages, clearly the links are there now that I know where to look for:

rpm -ql gcc4-java|grep .so

Looking at strace of the build a bit closer reveals that it's looking in wrong
9203  open("/usr/lib/libgcjawt.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
9203  open("/usr/lib/libgcjawt.a", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
9203  open("/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.4/libgcjawt.so", O_RDONLY) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)
9203  open("/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.4/libgcjawt.a", O_RDONLY) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)

So .. I suppose this is "just" a ooo-build problem.. never mind then, sorry
about the false alarm :)
