Description Octave Berry 2014-10-21 09:34:45 UTC
Icedtea build fails at the beginning of the compile phase if the default shell is set to dash instead of bash.
There is no clear error message pointing toward that, but these kind of lines : 

(in the configure process)
checking if a javah executable is specified... no
./configure: 9911: test: xno: unexpected operator
hecking if a jar executable is specified... no
./configure: 10033: test: xno: unexpected operator

With the final build lines being the following
rm -f rt-source-files.txt
for files in        ; \
do \
  echo $files >> rt-source-files.txt ; \
touch rt-source-files.txt
mkdir -p lib/rt
if echo        | grep '\S' &> /dev/null ; then \
  /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea- -g -encoding utf-8    -source 7 -target 7 -d lib/rt \
    -classpath /usr/lib64/icedtea7/jre/lib/rt.jar \
            -sourcepath '/var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-' \
            -bootclasspath \'\' @rt-source-files.txt ; \
javac: no source files
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
use -help for a list of possible options

Changing the default shell to bash and restarting the build seems to fix the issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change the default sh to dash
2. Build icedtea
Actual Results:  
The build fails in a strange way

Expected Results:  
icedtea builds properly

Comment 1 Kerin Millar 2019-10-29 06:11:51 UTC
The following command not only incoporates &> as a bashism, but also depends upon GNU grep.

  if echo $(ICEDTEA_BOOTSTRAP_CLASSES) | grep '\S' &> /dev/null ; then \

It could be written instead as:

  if echo $(ICEDTEA_BOOTSTRAP_CLASSES) | grep -q '[^[:space:]]' 2>/dev/null ; then \

The icedtea7 series has been dropped from portage, so this is no longer a bug from gentoo's perspective. That said, it looks as though it is still being maintained upstream. I might take a closer look at its, with regard to posix conformance. In the event that I do, I shall submit a patch upstream.
Comment 2 Alexander Tsoy 2020-05-10 21:33:41 UTC
It's still an issue with dev-java/icedtea-3.16.0:

checking if there is a ccache gcc wrapper on the PATH... ./configure: 12319: ./configure: Syntax error: redirection unexpected

Here string in configure:

$ sudo sed -n '12319p' /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-3.16.0/work/icedtea-3.16.0/configure
     NO_CCACHE_PATH=$(sed "s#[^:]*$(dirname ${ABS_CC}):##g" <<< "${PATH}")

This bug should not have been retconned. It is a disservice to the original reporter.

I can also confirm that this happens if /bin/sh is a link to dash.  Resetting it to bash fixes it.
Comment 7 Kerin Millar 2020-05-12 09:06:44 UTC
Un-hijacking. The bug, as originally reported by Octave Berry was for version (OpenJDK 7), not 3.16.0 (OpenJDK 8). The former has been dropped by Gentoo and would have required a different patch anyway. Please direct commentary about 3.16.0 to bug 722292. Thank you.
Comment 8 Kerin Millar 2020-05-12 09:18:47 UTC
Resolving as OBSOLETE. All things concerning Java 7 were dropped by Gentoo around the end of 2017 so it cannot be resolved downstream at this point (potentially upstream, though).
