I have a problem installing Frostwire on Fedora 21+ due to a conflict with the filesystem. The reason is due to use alien converter from deb to rpm not properly solving those dependencies.
$ sudo dnf install /tmp/frostwire-6.1.2.x86_64.rpm

After forcing the installation using rpm (not recommended), Frostwire failed to start with the latest openjdk on Fedora and needs Oracle version.

Something went wrong with FrostWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(FrostWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.7+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
openjdk version "1.8.0_45"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)
Fedora 21+ has java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless installed so that is a bug to fix.
would you be able to take a look at the frostwire launching script and see if you can fix the bug and send us a patch for it to work on Fedora 21+?
Do you have the source code so I can try out?
Or do you have recent spec file of Frostwire? I can only find one from version 5.7.6.
you should have the file after you install FrostWire, the script should be at /usr/lib/frostwire/frostwire.sh
Thank you. I am not familiar with Debian/Ubuntu packaging method as I mainly work with Fedora/Red Hat contribution. I will send an update once I complete them.
