Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 838280
no more package java-1.6.0-openjdk
Last modified: 2013-01-16 14:38:36 EST
Description of problem:
in Fedora 17 no package java-1.6.0-openjdk.
cat fedora-livecd-desktop.ks | grep java
[mx@mx spin-kickstarts]$ uname -r
[mx@mx spin-kickstarts]$ rpm -qa | grep java-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su 'livecd-creator /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks'
2. output messages : "No such package java-1.6.0-openjdk to remove"
No messages !
Remove its LINE from file : /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks
add LINE: "-java-1.7.0-openjdk" in file : /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks
Since this is cosmetic, I am not planning to go back and change this for F17. However I have committed the changes to the master (which F18 will use) branch of spin-kickstarts. The next time the package gets rebuild for F18 it will include this change.
I don't believe the intention was to completely remove java from the image, but rather to prevent including more than one version of java.
This was fixed a while back
