I would like to let you know that after 2+ months of work I managed to
port almost all fedora java stack to OpenMandriva. The most eye candy
package should be eclipse:
Most of my problems were first needing to start from a completely
broken java stack, and second using rpm5. To "bootstrap" I installed
fedora packages on OpenMandriva, then rebuilt them native and
"injected" them in cooker repositories:
while rebuilding on the proper build system added a single line header on
that is defined in /etc/rpm/macros.d/javapackages-tools.macros:
and some other rpm macros, to allow mostly unmodified fedora specs.
I know some people will just say I was cheap and did just copy work
from others, that probably is true :-)
I basically ported f20 packages, on a few exceptions I fetched FTBFS
corrections from rawhide, or when trivial did it myself, but 99% of the
packages rebuilt properly.
