I tried following the instructions in rraptorr's README and hit 2 snags:

  1. Oracle no longer provides the files as bin files.
  2. When I run the script, I get the following errors:
    make: *** [unpack-stamp] Error 1
    dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2

Here is the full console output:

zian@zian-laptop:~/sun-java6$ dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc -us

.in; do
f2=$(echo $f | sed 's/JB/sun-java6/;s/.in$//'); \


I quite don't understand, jdk-6u31-linux-i586.bin and jdk-6u31-linux-x64.bin are still available at the location mentioned in README: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
Please download both of them, put them in the sun-java6 directory and it should build.


Any status update about this issue?

You're right. I didn't realize that Java 6 is no longer the latest version of Java.
