Installing Java on Ubuntu and Debian

Ubuntu:

  • Step 1: Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list :
deb http://mirror.cscf/ubuntu/  uwaterloo/
  • Step 2: apt-get install sun-j2skd1.5 or run synaptic and install that package.

Debian:

  • Step 1: Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list :
deb http://mirror.cscf/ uwaterloo/
  • Step 2: apt-get install sun-j2skd1.5 or run synaptic and install that package.


Old version:

sarge only

I mirrored the blackdown.org stuff from ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/devel/lang/java/blackdown.org/debian/ to debian30 into uwaterloo/blackdown_java. Current version is 1.4.2.

Add the following line:

deb ftp://mirror.debian.math.uwaterloo.ca/ uwaterloo/blackdown_java/
to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, and then do apt-get update and apt-get install j2sdk-1.4.

From this week's Debian World news:

Supporting free Java in Debian. Michael Koch [12]considered the free
Java implementations in good shape to run major applications and asked
for more users to work with them and report bugs. He has gotten the
impression that many people prefer to use non-free implementations
instead of reporting back problems with the free packages. For better
support people should give [13]Kaffe, [14]SableVM or [15]JamVM or any
of the other free JVM Implementations in Debian a try.

 14. http://packages.debian.org/sablevm
 15. http://packages.debian.org/jamvm
