Description of problem:
If gcc-java is installed, and java-1.6.0-openjdk, but not java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel, josm is started with gcc-java, which is version 1.5. An incompatibility notice pops up and josm cannot be used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (if the given package configuration is installed)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check that alternatives --display javac mentions a 1.5.0 version instead of 1.6.0
2. Run josm
Josm gives an error and does not work.
Josm should run.
The given packages are the constellation that caused problems. I didn't do any Java development recently, but Eclipse pulls in gcc-java, but not openjdk-devel, and I think that has caused the problems. After installation of openjdk-devel one must perform "alternatives --auto javac" to finally get josm to work. A workaround could be to depend on openjdk-devel, but that would actually suck. I wonder why the script does not use the /usr/bin/java that has been setup by the alternatives system, but rather sources a script which chooses the wrong version from the many installed.
Thanks for reporting this bug.
Josm launcher is according Fedora guides lines. It is based on this example : http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Java#Wrapper_Scripts
I think problem come from java-functions provided by jpackage-utils.
Awaiting that it's corrected, I can add openjdk-devel dependencies.
Cedric, just try to add:
after the shebang in your wrapper script; as nobody can have a newer jdk without a jre (-devel requires plain package), that should do the trick
