Introduction

Java 7 packages for Debian.

Supported Debian versions

So far packages were tested on following Debian versions:

  • jessie i386/amd64
  • wheezy i386/amd64
  • squeeze i386/amd64

New users of Debian Wheezy should cosider using java-package: http://wiki.debian.org/JavaPackage

I do not have resources to test packages on Ubuntu. However, if one finds any problem on Ubuntu, feel free to report an issue and I will try to resolve it.

Usage

To create packages on your own:

  • apt-get install debhelper curl unzip
  • git clone git://github.com/rraptorr/oracle-java7.git
  • cd oracle-java7
  • sh ./prepare.sh
  • dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
  • install any missing packages that dpkg-buildpackage complains about and repeat

Legal

Oracle does not permit to distribute repackaged binaries of Java, so be advised that hosting any public repository with Java packages is probably illegal (at least in some parts of the world).

On the other hand, this repository contains only scripts, that allows one to repackage Oracle Java in Debian friendly way. No binaries are or will be hosted.
