I am getting a series of "warning: could not get file information for usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jdk/..." where the ... are dozens of files in both bin and jre. Install appears to be working. Anyone else getting this?

You can delete from install file: update-desktop-database, update-mime-database and xdg-icon-resource, as those updates are now performed by pacman hooks.

I'd like to celebrate this with an update, but..

E: It was also apparently 5 years since first submitted. Damn.

Thanks for this package, keep it up :)

You could try 'makepkg -L', or just makepkg in-and-of-itself.

I always need to perform this command when starting specific app via WEB:
sudo chown -R :wheel /etc/java*

I stand corrected. And I know the previous ABI is still supported, but in the future this package should indeed correct the issue, not Oracle.

You seem a little confused when you say that. I somehow missed that before, but these binaries are provided for whatever dependencies Oracle themselves chooses, that is, the ones in the widest circulation (used by Ubuntu).

So, if you're to rebuild your product for every new major dependency release, you're essentially dropping support for any distribution that uses the old version. Unlike things like libpng and libjpeg, GCC actually still provides the previous ABI (as per the announcment), and even if they were to drop it, it would be up to an AUR package to provide it for our distribution.

According to the script in [1] the binaries should be recompiled. However, this package relies on precompiled binaries. Should this be escalated to Oracle or …?
