The java-package Debian package will go through the
process of installing Sun's Java distribution. It supplies the command
make-jpkg to do this.
Obtain, for example, jdk-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin (this
is the J2SE kit) from http://java.sun.com. It is a 46MB file so
over a modem that could be 3 hours or so!
Once available turn it into a Debian package:
You will be asked for a Maintainer name for the package (you can give
your name) and an email address (again, use your own). These are just
pieces of information for the packaging, and have no consequence. The
debian package that is generated can then be installed:
$ fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin
$ wajig install sun-j2sdk1.5_1.5.0+update06_i386.deb
The manual approach for this (with an older Java version) is to save
the file into /usr/local/. Then
To accept the license type yes and the installation will begin. This
will create a new directory in /usr/local/ with the name
j2sdk1.4.2_03. Now create the necessary links:
# sh j2sdk-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin
To confirm it is installed:
This will also provide the necessary libraries for the Java plugin for
Mozilla (and hence Firefox and Epiphany).
# ln -s /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_03/bin/* /usr/local/bin
If there's a problem it might be protections:
# chmod -R go+rX j2sdk1.4.2_03
