Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85891
java / jvmsetup doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Running /usr/lib/openoffice/program/jvmsetup yields "Java cannot be configured"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From a terminal, run /usr/lib/openoffice/program/jvmsetup
"Java cannot be configured"
The program should start and let me configure which jvm to use (I suppose)
As OOo is "pre-installed" and pre-configured in phoebe, the installation program
that normally detects what jvm to use will never be run and java will thus be
hard to setup without the help of jvmsetup. If a jvm was shipped with RH and OOo
was pre-configured to use this jvm this would not be an issue, but as long as
this is not the case you will have to install java post installing OOo and there
should thus be an easy way to make java work with OOo.

On RedHat 8.0 the same problem exist, once a RedHat Engineer told me that they
not shipped Java so the jvmsetup will not work, but jvmsetup is just a file
with the next:
echo Java cannot be configured
So they (redhat) disabled or changed jvmsetup with a purpose unknow to me.
If you try to install OOo downloaded from www.openoffice.org the suite will not
work at all (crashes on startup). So the best solution to me is downgrade to RH
7.3 or change to Mandrake 9.1.
Correct, Java is not enabled for the builds because we do not ship
Java with OOo. We won't ship an SRPM that cannot be built on the base
system, that's just bad form.
However, with 1.1.0 I've added simple switch to flip in the specfile,
plus you point the specfile to your JDK, and thats it to get your
build with Java. We are working on getting OOo to compile the Java
bits iwth GCJ, and when that is successful, then of course I'll turn
Java stuff back on. Until then, you'll have to build Java support on
