fedora 8 upgrade remove java question


Can anyone help me with this. I tried to upgrade to Fedora 8. It made it all the way threw checking dependances then it hung. From what I am reading I think it is a JAVA problem I went to Fedora 7 add/remove software to remove JAVA it wanted to remove a ton of packages. Is there a way to remove JAVA with out removing all these packages. (openoffice etc.) Also does anybody know if flash player is a no no for fedora 8 as well.

You could use the --nodeps option with rpm -e. Another way would be to let yum uninstall java and openoffice and then you can reinstall them later.

You could make a note of which packages it wants to remove that you still want, then reinstall them after removing java using yum.
Also here is a link talking about using yum to uninstall/reinstall if there are dependency issuies (toward the bottom of the page)

Also skim down to "JDK 1.5 from Sun on Fedora Core 5" on the following web page:

What I meant above was that you could forcefully remove java using "rpm -e --nodeps packagename". The other option I mentioned, would be to remove java using YUM (which is what ehawk explained above) and take note of the packages that are removed along with java and then reinstall them using yum once you have completed the upgrade.
