Description of problem:
I could not install ant on a rhel 4 server when subscribed to the app server
product. It would give a dependency resolution error and quit. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2

How reproducible:
Unknown

Steps to Reproduce:
1. register rhel 4 as server to rhn
2. log into rhn and navigate to server details page
3. go to software -> software channels and subscribe to "Red Hat Application
Server v. 2 (AS v. 4 for i386)"
4. run "up2date install ant"
  
Actual results:
[root@fjs-0-08 xml_rpc_api]# up2date install ant

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-devel  1.4.2.0-27j requires ecj


The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:

libgcj-devel 

Expected results:
Ant dependency resolution completes and ant is installed

Additional info:
The ecj package is available in the rhel 4 base channel, so I downloaded it and
installed it by hand. Then "up2date install ant" would complete without errors,
but when I tried to use ant I got this error:

[root@fjs-0-08 xml_rpc_api]# ant

That looks to me like ant was not installed correctly.

RHAPS is not certified with GCJ. Is the above error reproducible with IBM/BEA jvms?

Please also note that RHAPS is nearing it's EOL and is in "security fix only" mode.

I don't know, I've blown away that box with a distribution I know I can make
work. I'm afraid I'm not going to be much help to you if you do decide to do
something about this.
Comment 3 Deepak Bhole 2008-06-18 17:12:43 EDT
Okay. I am pretty sure this error was a gcj specific one. I am going to close
this as NOTABUG, since it is not expected to work with gcj anyway.
