Changing these lines...

BASE_FLAGS="$BASE_FLAGS -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib64/libreadline-java"


BASE_FLAGS="$BASE_FLAGS -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/libreadline-java"

fixes the problem.

Info from Andrew Overholt:

This is a bug in the package.  It became noarch back in February but
that means that the %{_libdir} reference in the specfile gets turned
into /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 depending on the architecture of the _build_
machine.  That'll need to be changed to do some uname checking before
setting the classpath.  Alternatively, the package can go back to being
arch-specific but that may have ramifications beyond the other simple
Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2010-06-08 14:45:56 EDT
I changed the wrapper script to look at uname's output before it looks for /usr/lib or /usr/lib64.  I've pushed a build for F-13:


When that build finishes, please try it out and see if it fixes the problem for you.  Thanks.

On my own x86_64 and x86 boxes I can verify that it fixes the issue.
Comment 2 Eric Brunson 2010-06-08 15:09:49 EDT
Works on my x86 boxes.

Thank you.
