I want to install the java runtime 1.4.1 from Blackdown and do
apt-get install j2re1.4
it escapes with an error message :
update-alternatives: unable to make /usr/lib/mozilla-cvs/plugins/javaplugin_oji.so.dpkg-tmp a symlink to /etc/alternatives/javaplugin_oji-mozilla-cvs.so: No such file or directory
What is wrong?
Seems that this error message happen when the directory
does not exist. According to debian-user maillist this has been reported as a bug, but a workaround exist
mkdir -p /usr/lib/mozilla-cvs/plugins
will make the install procedure continue without problem.
