Installing Java on Debian


Hi,

Im very new to Linux and especially Debian.

I am trying to install Java on my system, using the tutorial given HERE.
In short, the procedure is to install the package "java-package", download the java bin file from sun, then build a .deb file.

But this last step of building the deb file doesnt run for me.

The order Im using is:
fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-6u12-linux-x64.bin

Which results in the following message:
Quote:
Creating temporary directory: /tmp/make-jpkg.GppQY17294
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: amd64
Detected Debian GNU type: x86_64-linux-gnu

No matching plugin was found.
Removing temporary directory: done
What Im reading from the error message is that the Java version Im trying to install doesnt fit for my system.

The processor used in the machine is an AMD64. So Ive been trying to install the 64Bit Version of Java.

I tried to google for this problem, but to no avail.

Can anybody point me to a possible source of the problem, or to a way to get a more detailed error message?

Thanks in advace.

Best Regards
Majiy

I'm not sure why you want to use those particular instructions.

If you just want to get sun's jvm then go here:
https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP...-CDS_Developer

Select Linux x64, agree to the license, and continue.

From there, just download the .bin file. It is an executable. Just run it as root and it will guide you through the installation.
