Java symbolic links broken on Fedora 19

0 votes

I have a system that I upgraded from Fedora 18 to 19 recently and I just installed eclipse, but it says that there's no JVM when I try and run it. I noticed that /usr/bin/java is a symbolic link to
/etc/alternatives/java which is then a symbolic link to
/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0-openjdk/bin/java but it's actually installed at

Is this an issue from the update from Fedora 18 to 19? Or is it an issue with the packages in Fedora 19?

Seems this started with java-1.7.0-openjdk-*
run alternatives --config java
then choose your openjdk version path

I am migrating from a Fedora 19 to a Fedora 20 host. I used the Fedora 20 live disk to install on the new machine. I have most things transferred over and working, but curiously I don't have any messages or mail log files in /var/log as I do in the F19 host:

I upgraded to fedora 20 from fedora 19 using fedup. Everything went well except for some weird issues with Thunderbird. The latter is now giving me a pile of weird permission errors and disk space errors. There is 250GB free space, so I know that is not the problem. Obviously this has something to do with the permissions on the thunderbird folder, but I do not have the knowledge to rectify the problem.

Please suggest how to proceed?

It's no longer in /etc/sysconfig/iptables.

I'm having trouble starting transmission-daemon. When I try to start it with systemctl, it hangs:

 # systemctl start transmission-daemon.service

If I let it be for a few minutes (~5), it finishes with a failure. The log is extremely unhelpful. This is very strange because it was working just fine until a few days ago.
