Description of problem:
The latest versions of javaws included in java-1.6.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52-29.b16.fc11.i586 fails to run common jnlp configurations. Versions shipped from the Fedora 11 update repository after the .netx bug (#507870) was fixed appeared to work fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run the command:
"javaws http://people.eecs.ku.edu/~miller/Courses/JOGL/House2DController.jnlp" from the terminal. It will fail to find the JOGL libraries in its class path even though they have been downloaded to $HOME/.netx/cache/... This is a very simple example of a jnlp file used as a class demonstration for a college course.
It should display a very simple house with the letters "KU" on it when it works properly.
Output from failed command:
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-1" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jogl in java.library.path
at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)
Created attachment 364267 [details]
Output from the same command using javaws -verbose
It appears that native libraries are not being added to the java.library.path when they are being downloaded.
I was able to "workaround" this bug by downloaded jogl separately, unpacking the native library jar file and added those to my library path.
Example from the command line:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="path to jogl native libraries"
This procedure worked and I was able to view the code as intended.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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 please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Fixed in the current update of the openjdk package: java-1.6.0-openjdk-184.108.40.206-42.b18.fc13
