objdump -x /usr/lib64/libgdal.so | grep RPATH
libjvm.so resides in: /usr/lib64/jvm/icedtea8-3.4.0/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so
/usr/lib64/jvm/java -> icedtea8-3.4.0 symlink is provided by icedtea8-jdk
- this package contains symlinks and manuals only, BUT also:
Requires: icedtea8-jar = 3.4.0-1, icedtea8-jdk-base = 3.4.0-1
one symlink and 2 mans, ...20 MB of unnecessary stuff
I'm not a JAVA guy, however this seems to be swapped: icedtea8-jdk and
icedtea8-jdk-base. I need the directory symlink mentioned only (to be
suggested by gdal).
