I have alrady installed (manually, from the .bin file) the latest jre (Version 6 Update 30) from oracle and now i want to remove the openjdk-6-jre. However, apt forces me to install old (Version 6 Update 26) sun-java6-jre! So, can I remove the openjdk-6-jre (and the icedtea plugin) without installing sun-java6-jre? Or is it trivial to try to remove openjdk-6-jre as it is "harmless"?
