FileBot and Fedora 28

Post by ChuckPa » 11 Jul 2018, 16:42

Hi,
Long time user and contributor.
I needed to upgrade to Fedora 28 (for work - Plex). In doing so, FedUp got munged (no surprise there, haha). Had to reinstall cold.
I can't figure out which of the java/jre dependencies are needed now. Attempt to extrapolate from my backups (dump/restore format) get me close but not close enough. Java is that one language I've not understood.

There are some "JavaFx" and other 'missing' messages which, in spite of installing the default packages matching those names, don't resolve it.

If anyone can tell me which packages to install or replace to restore CLI and GUI operation, I would be grateful.

Thanks,
Chuck

You can try the new 4.8.2 beta release:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6006

If you're on Linux, then you can either manually install the DEB package, or use snap. Either way, the latest Oracle JDK will be part of the bundle, so you don't need to worry about dependencies.

@Rednoah,
Thanks. Now I have something new to learn (snap) haha

This make sense to you?

Code: Select all

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pk-gtk-module"
[[email protected] ~.109]$

Sorry, I've never seen that message before. Presumably, it's just a warning, that you can make go away by installing the "pk" gtk module.

And that's where the fun stops. dnf list | grep -i gtk | grep -i pk (with or without the gtk filter)
The closest match is 'pkg' but nothing associated with "gtk"

There is a 2013 bug report match. Trying to determine if a regression or 'new feature' :/

found it.. a snap error. snap-gtk and snap need 0.6-12 but snapd is 2.33.1


Do you know the general dependencies I should start going for? I'll do this old-school with the portable

Sure. You can go for the portable then. You'll need OpenJDK 10 and OpenJFX 10.

best I can get (to this point) and be stable is 4.7.9.

Key dependency on Fedora resolves as:

Code: Select all

[[email protected] ~.102]$ alternatives --config java

There are 2 programs which provide 'java'.

  Selection    Command
-----------------------------------------------
*  1           java-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64 (/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.171-3.b10.fc26.x86_64/jre/bin/java)
 + 2           /usr/java/jre1.8.0_131/bin/java

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 
Fedora 28 is out in right field somewhere

The TAR portable Linux package is compatible with Java 8 for compatibility reasons.

The DEB and SNAP packages bundle the latest Java 10 and don’t require it as an external dependency.

Thanks. I should have replied earlier and saved you the trouble. My apologies for the omission.

I did go back to portable and 8. Dropped right in like a champ.

I do need complete one final step. Registration. (forgot how.sorry)
