and tried to install java-1_6_0_opnjdk. Again I said no and tabooed it. Then
Yast insisted and
wanted to install gcc-ijj - more or less in that order. I also tabooed it.

Then YaST got mad at me and wanted to remove openoffice, and I told it to

Is there some other way to make yast happy and recognize that Java IS indeed
installed in the
system? Perhaps a false java rpm with false provides?

Do we need a bugzilla for this?

Yes. As not all package maintainers follow this list.

Please file one and be this nice to report the issue ID as a clickable
URL back to this thread.
