Description D. Marlin 2011-09-23 13:25:17 EDT
Description of problem:

The pl package fails to build for secondary arch ARM.

I see the following errors:

../swipl-ld.sh -shared -o libjpl.so src/c/jpl.o \
  -L/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- \
  -L/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- \
    -ljava -lverify -ljvm
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ljava
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lverify
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ljvm

The reason is that the installed Java path is:

As a workaround, I modified the spec file to set JAVA_HOME and JAVA_LIB similar to sparcv9.  This allows the build to complete.

  +%ifarch %{arm}
  +export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-%{jdkvershort}-openjdk-%{jdkverlong}
  +export JAVA_LIB=$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/arm

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  need to use an ARM builder
2.  sample build log available at:

Actual results:

  fails to build successfully.

Expected results:

  build completes successfully.

Additional info:

This is part of the bootstrap effort for F15 for ARMv7.  Some of the packages, including java-1.6.0-openjdk are not yet built in koji.
Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2011-09-26 04:44:30 EDT
An ARM specific hack has been committed into F15 (pl-5.10.2-6.fc15) and higher.

Proper solution will be implemented after finding reliable way how to obtain JDK library path and JAVA_HOME directory.

JAVA_HOME can be set to /etc/alternatives/jre, JAVA_LIB can be constructed from System.out.println(System.getProperty("java.library.path")) string.

Unfortunately the java.library.path value is broken in java-1.7.0-openjdk now.

Tool for getting java paths

This is a tool to get linker path and JRE home directory for current JRE.
Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2011-09-30 05:06:28 EDT
The tool has been bundled to pl-5.10.5-4.fc17. Java SIG asked to integration into JDK.

Proper building pl verified on x86_64, i686, ppc, and ppc64. Sparc koji is unresponsive, ARM koji does not contain openjdk-1.6 yet. Feel free to check this release on those architectures.

Please not we cannot allow openjdk-1.7 because of bug #740762.
