Description of Problem:
Can't install rpm without --nodeps flag although have the jre in the required

I have installed the following SDK and JRE:

This created a directory called /opt/IBMJava2-131 dir which had a jre dir in it

installing the rpm using 
rpm -i  eclipse-linux-gtk-2.0.1-9.i386.rpm

causes the error:
error: failed dependencies:
	/opt/IBMJava2-13/jre is needed by eclipse-linux-gtk-2.0.1-9 
to appear.

So I renamed the java directory from /opt/IBMJava2-131 to /opt/IBMJava2-13. 
Now the jre is in the same path as above yet the same error is produced when
tryign to install. If I install with the --nodeps flag set, Eclipse installs and
runs fine.
Comment 1 Tom Tromey 2002-10-15 12:18:04 EDT
We standardized on the 1.3 JDK from IBM, not 1.3.1.
That is the root of the problem here.

Renaming the directory won't work, because dependencies
are based on the RPM that is installed, not the files that
exist -- that is, renaming the directory doesn't affect
what is recorded in the RPM database.

Could you uninstall 1.3.1 and install 1.3 instead?
If 1.3 isn't available, tell me and I'll reopen this report;
I think that would indicate it is time for all of us to upgrade.
