Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487458
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin for EL-5?
Last modified: 2017-04-06 06:30:28 EDT
I understand that OpenJDK is now part of RHEL 5.3 -- except for the browser plugin. If this is correct, what are the chances of getting the -plugin created for EL-5?
I bring this up specifically in regards to recent fixes made to the package (see bug 480487) that enabled signed applets and, specifically, applets requiring session information to run correctly. In my case this allows my company's VPN software to work correctly with OpenJDK instead of compelling me to make use of Sun's JRE.
Please let me know if I've misunderstood the OpenJDK + RHEL + EPEL situation. :-)
Fedora EPEL 5 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-03-31. Fedora EPEL 5
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora
or Fedora EPEL, please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If
you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current
release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
