Re: make-jpkg/java-package on unstable/experimental missing?

Hi All

Thanks everyone for the responses so far.

Iceweasel here is the candidate that doesn't have Java with openjdk
and that Icedt plugin.

So I installed the stable version of the java-package on unstable, and
tried to make-jpkg the IBM package


- sadly with no success: I could build the .deb package, with lots of
errors, but it seems its java didn't work. This might have to do with
either the fact that the stable (!) package does cover only a very old
and meantime unavailable IBM version, namely


or the fact that the unstable system here is only in parts updated to
latest package versions ..

If I have a little time I'll try to repeat the make-jpkg on a stable
Debian on a Ti-Book - I'll post to this thread when I have results
about it.

I you were talking about the sun-java6-jre package I recommend keeping
it, if it works: It's latest version is un-installable on unstable ppc
currently, for "unmet" dependencies.

Thanks for all the responses, again ..

Best Regards
