#48652 new enhancement

JRE installation dialog when updating cmake

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

See also ticket #48651.

When updating cmake on a Mac without Java installed, the user is prompted with an apparently parentless GUI dialog to install the JRE. The dialog says, "To view this web content, you need to install the Java Runtime Environment." with "More Info..." and "OK" buttons.

I'm not sure if a +java variant makes as much sense here as it would with gettext, but either way it would be nice not to have unexpected Java installation dialogs while updating ports.

Does the install still work without JRE being installed? Can you post a build log for cmake and for when this dialog pops up? Cmake does indeed look like it looks for Java internally, but my build log shows nothing useful. Maybe yours will show when this happens.

It installs fine, I presume. I only have it as a dependency for some other port. I'll try to find or create a build log.

Any word on this? Also, when you post a log please also post a comment so that I know to look for the log.
