How to install java virtual machine package with apt-get?


david@xdavid:~$ dpkg -l java*
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold

|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

un java1-runtime <none> (no description available)
un java2-runtime <none> (no description available)
un java2html <none> (no description available)
un javalex <none> (no description available)

Comments: java-virtual-machine is not installed.

david@xdavid:~$ apt-cache show java-virtual-machine

Comments: However, my apt-cache does not have the package 'java-virtual-machine'.

david@xdavid:~$ apt-cache search java-virtual-machine
gij-3.3 - The GNU Java bytecode interpreter
java-virtual-machine-dummy - Dummy Java virtual machine
sablevm - Free implementation of Java Virtual Machine (JVM) second edition

Comments: Not in the apt-cache search either.

david:/home/david# apt-get install java-virtual-machine
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package java-virtual-machine is a virtual package provided by:
sablevm 1.1.0-5
java-virtual-machine-dummy 0.3
gij-3.3 1:3.3.3-6
You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package java-virtual-machine has no installation candidate

Comments: Anyway, I tried installing the java-virtual-machine package. Read from another thread that any one of the three packages (sablevm, java-virtual-dummy, gij) should install java-virtual-machine. So I installed sablevm.

david@xdavid:~$ dpkg -l java*

un java2-runtime <none> (no description available)
un java2html <none> (no description available)
un javalex <none> (no description available)

Comments: After installing sablevm, Java-common package is shown as installed above. However, java-virtual-machine is still shown as not installed. Do I need to install all three packages? Web pages that require java-virtual-machine still prompt me to install it.

What is the correct method to install java-virtual-machine with apt-get?

Thanks !

i don't knew you error exactly, here is my steps. install java-common via apt-get, and goto sun's web site to download newest jdk rpm package. use alien to convert into deb package, then use dpkg to install. It works very well in my baby.
