2009-03-26 03:12:41 James Stansell sun-java6: statusexplanation This report is really a question about which package provides the javac command. The output listed in the report shows a list of packages, and the sun-java6-plugin package is not in that list. The javac command is used by programmers and administrators to compile java programs. For the inexperienced I would recommend trying the sun-java6-jdk package, which will most closely match the many comments that can be found through an internet search.

2009-04-01 15:13:56 Simon Morgan sun-java6: statusexplanation The problem is that sun-java6-jdk does not update the alternatives system even when there are no other java implementations installed. The javac binary does exist: ~ $ dpkg -L sun-java6-jdk | grep "bin/javac" /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.10/bin/javac A temporary fix for the problem is to run "sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun".
