I'm running Lubuntu on a netbook and I've installed Oracle's JDK. Everything seems to work fine. The only problem is that when the Oracle JDK updates, I get the following warning:
update-binfmts: warning: current package is oracle-java7, but binary format already installed by openjdk-6
I found this link: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+bug/328174
but it seems to be talking about something specific to java-6-openjdk. When I run
update-binfmts --display I get the following output:
python2.7 (enabled): package = python2.7 type = magic offset = 0 magic = \x03\xf3\x0d\x0a mask = interpreter = /usr/bin/python2.7 detector = jar (enabled): package = openjdk-6 type = magic offset = 0 magic = PK\x03\x04 mask = interpreter = /usr/bin/jexec detector =
I don't understand what this has to do with Python. How can I get rid of this warning?
Ok, I know more about update-binfmts now. I can see that there are two entries in there, one for Python and one for jar. I just need to change the jar entry as per the launchpad link. I'll do that as soon as I can and mark this solved if it works.
