Java Runtime Environment - Debian
When I try to install JRE so that I could play some pool with a friend, I do what the install instruction says and when I go to the page, I get "Missing module" or something like that.

What should I do?

The simplest way to install Java, is to use the unstable repo, make sure you have non-free and install:
Package sun-java5-bin

* unstable (libs): Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 [non-free]
1.5.0-08-1: amd64 i386
A simple apt-get install sun-java5-bin
Will install it .

While your at it update Firefox:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060830 Firefox/ (Debian-1.5.dfsg+

E: Couldn't find package sun-java5-bin

I have stable Debian installed, could this be a problem? :D
