Description Joe W. Byers 2008-04-08 01:14:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008030315 Red Hat/3.0b4pre-0.beta3.4.el5 Minefield/3.0b4pre

Description of problem:
 I execute the following and then receive the error message
# alternatives --verbose --auto java
reading /var/lib/alternatives/java
slave path expected in /var/lib/alternatives/java

Is there any way to determine the line number in /var/lib/alternatives/java where the error occured?

This would be a great benefit.

Thank you
