Installing Java 6 JDK on Ubuntu 9

Posted 05-15-2009 at 08:45 PM by Moorlie

This turned out to be easier than I hoped. It turns out that the Wubi install of Ubuntu that I am using has all the package repositories I needed to install Sun Java 6 JDK. The following command was all that was required:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre sun-java6-jdk

Dual booting Ubuntu 9 on HP Pavilion laptop

After much deliberation I decided to take the plunge and install Ubuntu on my laptop today. It's a basic HP Pavilion sporting an AMD Turino64 processor and an nVidia 7150m graphics card.

Then I got cold feet and decided I did not want to repartition my hard disk and run the risk of trashing my existing Vista install, too much work there. I opted to use Wubi, a Ubuntu installer that uses space on an existing Windows partition and adds a dual-boot menu.
