When opening some of my projects in eclipse, I'm getting:

Could this patch, or an updated version of openjdk please be rolled into the current version of Java on Fedora 9?

I'd just update to rawhide, but attpeting to only update the openjdk packages has a dependency on ca-certificates-2008-6.noarch and file /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt from install of ca-certificates-2008-6.noarch conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.8g-9.fc9.x86_64

Comment 1 Clint Goudie 2008-09-02 14:56:07 UTC
after pulling down the rpms from rawhide, and installing them with the nodeps rpm option, my problem is resolved. 

I'd still prefer to see an official fix in F9.

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2008-09-09 13:12:16 UTC
java-1.6.0-openjdk- has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2008-09-11 17:01:41 UTC
java-1.6.0-openjdk- has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
