The package seems not to compile against Java 9 (Java 8 works):

not compiling with jre7/jdk7 (that is selected by default for apache-ant dependency in pacman) - and compiling with jre8/jdk8

errors upon build:



/tmp/yaourt-tmp-not/aur-jitsi/src/jitsi/build.xml:454: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre"

Total time: 2 seconds
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build jitsi.

Login with Google caused NoClassDefFoundError (icq works fine):

Whoever is maintainging this: the startup classpath changed from 2.8 to 2.10 and causes the login failures. You'll need to adapt the script, look at the script for Debian (resources/install/debian/ for an example.

@xdevla Hmm… bizarre. I just tried on my wife's system, with only java-7-openjdk and java-8-openjdk/jre (default) installed, and it failed there too. And obviously a few other people in this thread have that problem too.

FWIW I tried building with the four javas that you had installed (I had previously been missing java-8-jdk), with java-8-jre/jre as default again. It still failed.

xdevla commented on 2017-02-28 09:39

Yep, I tried to build the package with the four environments and all were success (however throwing some warning here and there).

Rhinoceros commented on 2017-02-28 09:32

@xdevla Do you mean with java-8-jre/jre as default instead?

xdevla commented on 2017-02-28 09:29

Compiles fine at my side with those four environments :
java-8-openjdk/jre (default)

Rhinoceros commented on 2017-02-28 09:21

2.10.5550-2 still fails if you have java-8-jre/jre selected as the default. You can fix it by hard-coding java-7-openjdk in the PKGBUILD.
