Dependency error during installation

    The --nodeps option seems to bypass all the configuration stuff that needs to be done after the software is copied down.  I have several 1.6 jre and jdk installations, all configured throught alternatives, but it still cannot find java.  I have JAVA_HOME set for the default user, and for root.  Why is the rpm package unable to find java?

    I figured it out.  You didn't mention that Java has to be installed via RPM so that the RPM dependency will pick it up.

    Go v12.x and earlier versions of Go required Java to be installed as a rpm package, but its not true any more. Go rpm installers version 13.x and above do not have a install time dependency on Java anymore. However, you should know that Go requires java to be installed on the machine. If java is not installed or not available in path, installation of Go server and agent would go through but the application startup will fail.

    Also, the Go community pages have moved to mailing lists. You can find the links on . There are more people there to help.

    Hi guys,


    I installed Go Server in 


    CentOS release 6.6 (Final), 


    Java version "1.7.0_71"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_71-b14)

    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.71-b01, mixed mode)


    ruby 1.9.3p448 (2013-06-27 revision 41675) [x86_64-linux]


    But show these errors, I’m not sure it’s a bug or environment issue.


    Could you take a look?
