Try archlinux-java status and archlinux-java fix

I need to obliterate a few files in a github repo and am trying to use bfg I installed the bfg package from the AUR using yay:

yay -Sy bfg-git

The package installed correctly but when I ran bfg I got:

/usr/sbin/bfg: line 2: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64/bin/java: No such file or directory

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how to fix?

@Rulatir Search on the AUR for sbt-git. It downloads the sources from github and patches them removing the controversial output before building the package. No need to rely on maybe forgotten forks. The main drawback is the pretty heavy "sbt" make dependency.

Hi. This package tracks bfg upstream, so no. But, you are free to create your own derivative PKGBUILD.

Can we switch to one of the many forks that remove politics?

The dependency java-environment should be changed to java-runtime

I've removed the hard dependency on jdk 8. It should work now with your setup.

diraria commented on 2018-05-23 14:37 (UTC)

I have jdk installed ( Could you say, please, why when I install bfg from aur, yaourt tries to install jdk8-openjdk-8.u172-2?
