Or, maybe even better, get it in the right format from the OpenJava site, but the propaganda all reads like its source only & doesn't seem to say if it will build with the current gcc.As I (sort of) pointed out in another post, the best bet is the NOSRC rpms for Sun Java from jpackage.org. You grab the .nosrc.rpm from jpackage and the .bin installer from Sun and follow the instructions on the jpackage site.Which seems to have been pretty well hidden, so far all I've found are the src rpms. The .bin installer I have, unpacked even. But yum can't find the -fc .xml's for fc6 because nothing newer than fc4 is available. So I disabled that repo in order for yumex to proceed. The only likely looking candidate is in non-free, and is labeled: java-1.5.0-sun-compat-1.5.0.09.jpp-noarch which claims to be the jpackage compatibilty for suns jdk of the same version number. Unforch, its 184.108.40.206 I have the .bin for. I'm going to grab it with yum and see what it might be. But that's not going to fly: Missing Dependency: jdk = 2000:1.5.0_09-fcs is needed by package java-1.5.0-sun-compat And I don't believe this package is available as the fc5 & fc6 listings aren't even there when I look at the mirrors. What are we going to have to do, wait 2 years before OpenJava gets mature enough to use?
It's pretty obscure, as it turns out. Visit http://jpackage.org/browser/browse.php?jppversion=1.7 and scroll down to the bottom, where the "nonfree" packages are listed.
