sha256sum mismatch jdk-7u3-linux-i586.tar.gz means that there were a problem with the file, either the checksum or the downloaded file are corrupted. For your information, I'm running OpenJDK6 with no problem, in two machines with 12.04. –  Awi Jun 12 '12 at 1:17
    
It does not seem possible to me that the downloaded file is corrupted. I tried it from three different mirrors too; but nothing changed. –  Amadeus Bachmann Jun 12 '12 at 6:15
    
Note that the file retrieved was "download.oracle.com/errors/download-fail-1505220.html"; and so technically, it was a corrupted download. –  Burhan Ali Aug 25 '12 at 21:48

Here is the solution that I found:

First, uninstall existing one:

sudo apt-get remove oracle-java7-installer

Then:

add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java 
apt-get update
apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

Hope it works for you too.
