Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174788
OpenOffice.org 2.0 does not recognize Sun JRE
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
Description of problem:
I use Sun's Java package found in jdk-1.5.0_04-fcs. It
contains the JRE in a subdirectory, and I want to use this
particular JRE instead of gcj (sorry, I'm not fond of it, and
please stop making it a requirement for installation... I get
sick of having to readjust my "alternatives" every time, and
really would prefer that went away too... but I digress).
When I use the menu, options, etc, to try to select it, it
says there is no JRE in the directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-core-2.0.0-3.2.1 (plus assorted components)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Sun's jdk-1.5.0_04_fcs package
2. Start OOo
3. Go to Tools->Options->OpenOffice.org->Java
4. Attempt to add the JRE found in /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_04/jre
"Does not contain a Java Runtime Environment"
Successful addition of the JRE for use with OOo

I see *NO* commonality between this and 159381. This is regarding running Java
code, the one you said it duplicates is internationalization.
