Comment 2 Will Nowak 2006-07-20 14:45:59 EDT
This was resolved by also installing Sun Java instead of the gnu java that comes
with FC5. I suppose this should be added as a dependency of fedora-ds, as the
console does not work properly with gnu java.
Comment 3 Rich Megginson 2006-07-20 14:50:43 EDT
It also works with the IBM java, and may work with the BEA java.  We didn't want
to put a dependency to a non-open source component in our product, hence the
confusion.  See
for more information.
