Unable to create debian package of java JRE


I am unable to create a Debian package from the java.bin files. I have tried with 1.4.2 from Blackdown and I have tried with 1.5 (5.0) from sun but neither of them are wrking. I have installed java-package and fakeroot as all the guides have told me.

when I cd into the directory where the file is and issue the command to create the package all I recieve is the following error:

house@debian:~/Desktop/java$ fakeroot
root@debian:~/Desktop/java# make-jpkg jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin
Creating temporary directory: /tmp/make-jpkg.XXXXM55WNs

No matching plugin was found.
Removing temporary directory: done
root@debian:~/Desktop/java#

Am I doing something wrong? Or is the java-package broken at the present time or soemthing. HHelp would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Michael

I just installed it on a laptop yesterday, and it was fine.

Kinda peculiar that your system seems to thing you are actually running as root after you issued the fakeroot command. Try that all on one command ...

$ fakeroot make-jpkg jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin

That's how I've always done it.

its a problem caused after having ran bastille, it must have changed some permissions, using the revert feature of bastille sorted it out.
