jdk-6u12-docs.zip not downloadable from SUN


has any buddy had this issue in Debian Lenny, I am not sure how to fix it w/o APT or Synaptic which it is locking me out of

Bug#509636: jdk-6u12-docs.zip not downloadable from SUN



When trying to install it, following instructions come up:
Setting up sun-java6-doc (6-12-1) ...
This package is an installer package, it does not actually contain the
JDK documentation. You will need to go download one of the
archives:

jdk-6u12-docs.zip jdk-6u12-docs-ja.zip
(choose the non-update version if this is the first installation).
Please visit

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/

now and download. The file should be owned by root.root and be copied
to /tmp.

[Press RETURN to try again, 'no' + RETURN to abort] no
Abort installation of JDK documentation
dpkg: error processing sun-java6-doc (--configure):

However there doesnt seem to be jdk-6u12-docs.zip, only jdk-6u10-docs.zip
is to be found.

>>>edit/ I just removed it finally

I've been having the same problem and here is how I solved it:
download jdk-6u10-docs.zip from sun into the /tmp directory
open a root terminal and enter the following commands:
# cd /tmp
# cp jdk-6u10-docs.zip jdk-6u12-docs.zip

Then continue with the install as this will satisfy the installer.
