Same here; reinstalling it gets you closer but one still has to go
inside /usr/lib/jdk1.1 and replace 2 empty dirs with symlinks before
it actually works.  And though it then runs, it still complains about
checkVersions being missing.

I'd rather have the jdk 1.1.6 from September back, to be honest -- it
actually worked.  How did 1.1.7 get into slink two weeks ago, this far
into the freeze?

I'd say grave, but then again jdk is non-free and wont be on CDs anyway.
TIA to whoever fixes this package.
