Hi,

aptosid installation went well, thanks for the fine work. I just had a problem with java webstart and icedtea web controll panel. I have installed openjdk-java-7 and found out that there are wrong links in /etc/alternatives/

The links of @javaws and @itweb-settings point to java-6. After changing that to java-7, everything worked fine. Now I can start applets and the settings-tool.

I did not install anything from java-6 manually and when I tried to remove openjdk-6-jre apt-get told me, that it is not installed.

I do not know if anybody else had that problem.

regards,

robi

Does this root command help?
      Code:
update-alternatives --config java

Confirmed, icedtea-7-plugin still points to java-6. The related bug report at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=662239 is closed FIXED, but the problem is still there. I will re-open the bug report.
Greetings,
Chris

Temporary hack:
      Code:
rm /etc/alternatives/javaws
rm /etc/alternatives/itweb-settings
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/javaws /etc/alternatives/javaws
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/itweb-settings /etc/alternatives/itweb-settings

Please be aware that manually editing /etc/alternatives is a bad idea in most cases, it might break postinstall scripts from upgrades later on.
Greetings,
Chris

Perhaps noting the original /etc/alternatives settings should be saved somewhere so they can be copied back when a fixed package becomes available so that the postinstall scripts won't break on the upgrades later

I changed the links within mc (C-x C-s). Is that the same?

Just to add, openjdk 6 is still default in Debian Sid, openjdk7 is just optional. However, after installing 7 the links should point to 7, and not to 6 - specially if 6 is not installed.

Chris
