ca-certificates-java and openjdk-6-jre-headless have circular dependencies

Marc Deslauriers (mdeslaur) wrote :

The ca-certificates-java postinst tries to work around the circular dependency with the following:

    for jvm in java-6-openjdk java-7-openjdk java-6-sun; do
 if [ -x /usr/lib/jvm/$jvm/bin/java ]; then
    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/$jvm

    export CLASSPATH

but in precise, the paths have changed because of multiarch:

java-6-openjdk-amd64 instead of java-6-openjdk

summary: - ca-certificates-java tries to call "java" binary before it's installed
+ multiarch broke circular dependency workaround

This bug was fixed in the package ca-certificates-java - 20110912ubuntu6

ca-certificates-java (20110912ubuntu6) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/postinst: also look for jvm in multiarch locations (LP: #962378)
  * debian/postinst: retrigger first_install to properly get cert store.
