It is completely intentional that gcc-java now depends on eclipse-ecj.jar.
Comment 2 Paul Dickson 2007-03-12 00:17:09 EDT
My point is that yum wasn't pulling in eclipse-ecj.jar.  gcc was failing to
updated because of a dependency on /usr/share/java/eclipse-ecj.jar.
Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2007-09-18 01:42:52 EDT
I've hit this recently on Fedora 7 install, and F7 updates have stalled for
about two weeks because this dependency isn't satisfied properly in yum.

One potential source of problem may have been that it seems I had an old version
of eclipse-ecj rpm (3.2.2-14.fc7) sitting on /var/cache/yum/fedora/packages
directory for some reason (maybe from an older update attempt).  I wonder if
that was messing up the update for some reason.  After manually installing it
and rerunning yum update, the first thing yum did was download eclipse-ecj

I think this is a problem so re-opening.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-18 14:17:26 EDT
What version of yum do you have installed?
Comment 5 Pekka Savola 2007-09-19 00:50:34 EDT
It's impossible to say for sure because yum was upgraded in the same ago, but if
I'd have to guess, I'd say it was 3.2.2 because I recall that was the
next-to-latest yum update that was pushed to updates/updates-testing.
Comment 6 Seth Vidal 2008-03-12 09:59:05 EDT
okay - this was most likely a file lookup problem in 3.2.2. I've recently tested
non-primary-file-dep look ups and found them working properly. If you find a
problem in yum 3.2.8 or above please file a new bug.
