JDK 1.2.2 with potato (Silly me!)
Thanks for all the help with JDK 1.2.2 on potato. It turns out my
problem was largely my own stupidity in writing bad Java!
I did learn some important things. To install JDK 1.2.2 from
Blackdown or Sun:
1. Make a directory under /usr/local (I used /usr/local/sun).
2. Download the archine into this directory, then unpack it. A
directory jdk1.2.2 will be created.
3. Adjust the alternatives to work correctly:
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac \
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java \
4. Check your alternatives with "type"
Particular thanks go to Harvey Bath for explaining the alternatives
mechanism to me.
