First of all, thanks to all of you who were commenting on the last article about the Sun Java6 Community PPA. I took the input and this is the outcome:
- Packages for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS: Done
- Package for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS: Done
- Asked Doko to push Sun Java packages to the partner archive: Done
Also thanks to Petar Velkovski, who was so kind to write an email, that I should tell you that you eventually need to update your alternatives and your java alternatives with
"update-alternatives --config java" and "update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun".
The second work today way to try to fix some FTBFS packages (FTBFS == Failed To Build From Source).
Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum, who rebuilt the entire Ubuntu archive and provided a list of all packages which are FTBFSing.
I tried to fix most of the Universe/Multiverse packages, at least I'm trying to do some packaging work again, next to my daily business.
Sadly I touched one package which gives me now nightmares. It's using an old auto*foo (version 1.6) which is not anymore in our archives. I wonder if I can fix it really.
