Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 850523
java-1.7.0-openjdk doesn't provide java, jdk, or jre
Last modified: 2012-08-21 14:25:19 EDT
Description of problem:
The newly released openjdk-1.7 provides java7, jdk7, and jre7, but not jdk, java or jre, which makes using it as a packaging dependency challenging.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Build or find a package that depends on java >= 1.6.0. Install openjdk-1.7, try to install package that depends on java >= 1.6.0. It will fail.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build or find a package that depends on java >= 1.6.0.
2. Install openjdk-1.7
3. Try to install package that depends on java >= 1.6.0
Package installation fails due to dependency failure, no package provides java >= 1.6.0
Package installation succeeds because openjdk-1.7 is >= 1.6.0.
This is a dupe of 849458, closing as such. The provision was intentional for 6.3 and dev can fix it for 6.4 once the acks are there.
