Description Rik van Riel 2006-08-11 17:17:04 EDT
Description of problem:

The package does not seem to require whatever package actually contains

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-plugin
2. look at the dead link in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
Additional info:

This is on x86-64.  Does a libjavaplugin.so exist in some other java package?
Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-08-14 14:28:15 EDT
Yes, the plugin file exists as /usr/lib/gcj-4.1.1/libgcjwebplugin.so in the
libgcj sub-package of the gcc rpm.

The java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-plugin sub-package contains the following lines:

Requires(post): libgcj%{gccsuffix} >= %{gccver}
Requires(postun): libgcj%{gccsuffix} >= %{gccver}

Maybe that's not enough, and I also need:

Requires: libgcj%{gccsuffix} >= %{gccver}

I assumed that Requires(post) implied Requires.
Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-08-14 15:21:56 EDT
This should be fixed in java-1.4.2-gcj-compat- which I just
built into Rawhide.  Please confirm.
Comment 3 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-08-22 16:35:32 EDT
I'm assuming this is fixed in Rawhide.  Please reopen this report if the bug
appears again.
