Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that

what can i do get java working on my linux box?
You should go to http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp and
download the JDK. Install java-package with 'apt-get install
java-package' and then run 'fakeroot make-kpkg <name_of_jdk>.bin'
and then 'dpkg -i <jdk_pkg>.deb'
