Hi all,
On RH8.0, the package libgcj-3.2-7 provides some tools which conflict with tools at $JAVA_HOME/bin. I do'nt know what functions it acts and how to uninstall it.

I appeal for aid. Thanks!

Regards, Light Wan

Hi Light Wan,
If you run the command "rpm -qi libgcj", you will get the information about what the package contains (in general terms), so you should get something like:

The Java runtime library. You will need this package to run your Java
programs compiled using the gcc Java compiler (gcj).

However, since you are using the Sun Java compiler, not the GCC Java compiler, you can safely remove this.
To remove this, run (as root): rpm -e libgcj
RedHat have (since RedHat 5 at least) provided a graphical tool which will let you do the same things. I never use it, so I cant tell you what it is. But if you are running X Windows as root then it is probably one of the options if you find the "control panel". (Sorry, running RedHat 7 at present, dont have 8, dont have the v7 graphical tool installed).
If you want to find out what programs you will be deleting, you can run rpm -ql libgcj, this will provide a listing of what files are in the package.
Regards, Andrew
