View Full Version : [ubuntu] Jre depends on Bin and Bin depends on Jre??

December 30th, 2009, 03:12 AM

I was trying to install Sun-Java-Jre on my Karmic, on which I don't have a direct internet connection. The problem is that the Sun-Java-Jre package depends on Sun-Java-Bin package. But when I tried to install it, it says ke Sun-Java-Bin depends on the Jre package??! A dependency depends on the parent package itself? How can I install Jre on my PC?

(no direct internet, so apt-get suggestions are futile)

Either download all the dependencies and install everything with

sudo dpkg -i *.deb
or download the .bin file from Sun and install it by hand.
