Missing dependency for jvisualvm
Last modified: 2008-11-03 09:53:04 EST
Description of problem:
openjdk-devel contains jvisualvm which depends on netbeans-platform8 to run, but the package doesn't depend on it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel
/bin/bash: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/bin/../lib/visualvm//platform*/lib/nbexec: No such file or directory
jvisualvm actually starting.
This is the package that provides nbexec: netbeans-platform8
It might be a good idea to split jvisualvm into its own openjdk-jvisualvm package so openjdk-devel doesn't drag in netbeans.
Thanks for pointing this out.
I would rather keep visualvm as a part of the devel package only, instead of creating a subpackage. Any other objections?
Yes, I really don't like the netbeans to be installed just because one tool dependency. I think this is really clear example of needing subpackage because of external dependencies.
