I have problems with JDK help me please !


Hi guys, I would love if anyone here could help me with a lil big problem, I'm trying to install the SUN JDK, the recomended way, making a .deb from the .bin file, I have done everything in line, download fakeroot and java-package besides the jdk.bin of course, but when I try to install it I get an error that I have tried to solve but I can't and I don't know what else to do, here is the output:

Note: I change the file name from the original name to an easier one, and I'm sure everything is well done.

Code:
[E-MAIL-PROTECTED]:~$ fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-1.bin
Creating temporary directory: /tmp/make-jpkg.XXXXz2Lk7b
Loading plugins: blackdown-j2re.sh blackdown-j2sdk.sh common.sh ibm-j2re.sh ibm-j2sdk.sh j2re.sh j2sdk-doc.sh j2sdk.sh j2se.sh sun-j2re.sh sun-j2sdk-doc.sh sun-j2sdk.sh

Detected Debian build architecture: i386
Detected Debian GNU type: i486-linux-gnu

No matching plugin was found.
Removing temporary directory: done
[E-MAIL-PROTECTED]:~$
Thanks, please I'll be waiting for your answer.

I would have thought the recommended way would be apt-get install sun-java5-jdk.

Enable Sid if you aren't using it. The package maintainers were careful to make sure it was installable on sarge up.

It's stuck in unstable due to bug reports on the license.

I perfectly understand what you recomend man, and thanks for the answer, BUT ! I already did it, in fact I already have Java installed on my system (Etch), but they support JDK 1.4.x, and I got some applications that depend on jdk 1.5, so let's say that I need that lastest versions, I could install it from the .bin file, but I know I don't know how to configure the path and all that stuff, I've tried so many ways, but I can't find the right one , please help

Try getting the sun-java5-jre or -bin depending on which you need the paths should be set properly with the Debian packages.

Code:
apt-cache policy sun-java5-jre
sun-java5-jre:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.5.0-08-1
  Version table:
     1.5.0-08-1 0
        600 http://ftp2.de.debian.org sid/non-free Packages

Perfect !

Code:
sun-java5-jre:
  Installed: 1.5.0-08-1
  Candidate: 1.5.0-08-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.5.0-08-1 0
JackieBrown: I know you said sid, and I just said that I have etch, but I installed the package from sid since it's not yet on the Etch, thanks anyway bro.

HappyTux: Thanks for the info, as you can see up I just realized that I have 1.5 installed on my system, so what I really need is to configure it (wich of course I have tried but I didn't could), I don't know if it's correct to talk about this here o should I make a new post ?

Anyway, please don't kill me, I have tried to configure the vaiable JAVA_HOME on my bashrc, but it dosen't seem to work, I'm pretty sure I'm not doing it right
