Re: java applets & mozilla
I just ran into this. I did an update on my mostly-Woody system and
went to install something in aptitude and it removed j2re1.3. It said
it was broken due to some dependancy issues. Now, trying to install
it, I can't and it I get this:
root # apt-get install j2re1.3
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
j2re1.3: Depends: j2se-common (> 1) but it is not installable
E: Sorry, broken packages
It also listed java-common as an unmet dependancy, but I installed
that separately. I can't find j2se-common at all.
I don't see this as a known or pending bug on Blackdown's site, so
I've submitted a bug report.
I have just solved the same problem adding "main" to the sources.list
record. Now I have
woody main non-free (or other blackdown mirror)
With this entry, you have j2se-common available
