Description of problem:
Attempts to execute the Sun Java 1.4.0 JVM (i.e., any Java program) fail. JVM
1.3.1 works, and 1.4.0 works under RedHat 7.2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 7.2.
2. Download and install j2sdk1.4.0 from http://www.javasoft.com
3. Execute 'java --version'
Actual Results: Error occurred during initialization of VM
Unable to load native library: /usr/local/jdk1.4.0/jre/lib/i386/libjava.so:
symbol __libc_waitpid, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
Expected Results: Version info printed
Typo: "1. Install RedHat 7.2" -> "1. Install RedHat 7.2.92". Oops.
This is fixed by newer versions of glibc in rawhide. I was having the exact same
problem with j2re 1.4.0. I upgraded from glibc 2.2.5-27 to 2.2.5-30.
Fixed in glibc-2.2.5-30.
