Installing Sun-Java 6 on DebianPosted: August 28, 2010
Arrrrgggghhhhhhhhh !!!! why is Linux such a pain in the arse sometimes
To get Sun-Java-6 on a Debian box then follow the instructions. I think there is a Repo out there so you can use apt-get but I could not find it.
I am running on a 32bit in this config so all the file relate to the setup.
The bits can be downloaded from here
The following will get you going, I think these are in the correct order but it was a pain an then worked, these tough are all the files that you need though.
apt-get install odbcinst1debian1
Then install each one in order
dpkg -i xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you already have a Java installation issue this command
update-alternatives –config java
and choose the number for the appropriate Java version you want.
Should display the version of Java that you want.
You should add this to you environment
and add the two lines
The paths maybe different depending on where the installation took place. Change accordingly
