Problems installing Spark 2.9.4 on Fedora 34

I ma hoping someone can give me some guidance here,
I am trying to install Spark on a new Fedora 34 system
First, the RPM

[root@grumpy xmpp]# rpm -ivvv spark-2.9.4.rpm

[root@grumpy xmpp]# 

then cloning the source from git
I get the following error

These are two different problems. The first problem seems to be an issue with the RPM that we distribute. That needs looking into. To avoid any confusion, can you identify the exact file that you’re using please?

The latter problem probably occurs because you’re trying to build the latest version of the code, instead of the code that is tagged as a release. Try switching to the v2.9.4 tag!

This post from an unrelated project seems to describe a similar issue: invalid signature tag Archivesize on rpm packages created by install4j · Issue #1635 · rpm-software-management/rpm · GitHub

We have two paths to build RPMs: one through a custom script, and one through Install4j. I’m thinking that the release RPM is build using the custom script (but I’m not sure - @akrherz?).

It is worth trying a nightly build of Spark, which is generated from Install4j. You can find those here: Ignite Realtime: Spark Nightly Builds

We only use install4j’s RPM these days.

Good Morning
I have found the following that seems to explain the issue
rpm is not recognising install4j signatures as valid
Awaiting the RPM maintainers to update

Thanks for your help

I have retried installing from source for versions 3.0.0-beta, 2.9.4, 2.9.3 and 2.9.2 all with the same 4 files missing.

Am I missing something here


This problem seems to have been fixed in Install4j 9.0.2 (see last item in their changelog). I suspect that upgrading that (and generating new installers), would resolve the issue. I’m unsure if that means that we need to update install4j configuration in individual projects (to remain compatible), and/or if our license covers the new version. We’ll work on that, but I’d like @akrherz to be at least awake while I’m potentially breaking things. :slight_smile:

Our buildserver currently has a lot of different versions of install4j installed (I’m unsure if that’s intended, or an artifact of earlier upgrades), but uses version 8.0.10.

I was impatient and tried a thing. @Colin_Riddel would you mind giving the RPM in this build a test run? Install4j-generated-media

@akrherz - what I did:

  • Obtained TAR.GZ archive of Install4j 9.0.4 installer from ej-technologies - Java APM, Java Profiler, Java Installer Builder
  • Extracted in directory that contains all other Install4j instances
  • Added symbolic link from install4j9.0.4/jres to the shared jres directory
  • executed install4j9.0.4/bin/install4jc --license=<OURLICENSEKEY>

To test a build without affecting others, I’ve changed the argument that points to the to-be-used install4j home directory in the Spark Nightly Build plan from to the new installation directory (rather than reconfiguring the symbolic link that the plan was using before.

Good Afternoon
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, I have been away for a couple of days

I grabbed that RPM and it installed fine, I had a bit of fiddling needed to set the JVM path as it is expecting INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME not JAVA_HOME.
it fails without any error messages when run from the gnome4 menu
