I have had eclipse running for a while now. And have been developing a java based server.
Today, eclipse, java project, right click, properties, java build path (jdk 1.6) is suddenly reporting missing jars `(netx.jar, plugin.jar and gnome-java-bridge.jar). May be after a ubuntu auto update these jars went missing. It has also happened to my laptop a few days back.
java version "1.6.0_24" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.3) (6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.10.04.1) OpenJDK Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
I could not find anyone else having a similar issue, so I thought I'll upgrade to 1.7. So I downloaded 1.7 jdk and jre from oracle
I ran the following, on my Ubuntu 10.04
sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential sudo alien jre-7u5-linux-i586.rpm sudo alien jdk-7u5-linux-i586.rpm
Unfortunately both report errors. These folders do exist in the path.
make: *** [binary-arch] Error 9 find: `jdk-1.7.0_05': No such file or directory make: *** [binary-arch] Error 9 find: `jre-1.7.0_05': No such file or directory
Now when I try to install again, using
sudo alien jdk-7u5-linux-i586.rpm
error: incorrect format: unknown tag Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package jdk: postinst postrm prerm Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts. mkdir: cannot create directory `jdk-1.7.0_05': File exists unable to mkdir jdk-1.7.0_05: at /usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package.pm line 257.
