+1 to japgolly's find

This indeed needs jre6-compat to be installed to work. It should be added to dependencies.

6u38-b05 has been released.

Hi! This seems to be missing a dependency on jre6-compat.
jdk6-compat expects jre6 to be installed and installs symlinks to jre files. If jre isn't installed then the links point to nothing and doesn't work.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Oct 31 00:23 /opt/java6/bin/java -> ../jre/bin/java

ls: cannot access /opt/java6/bin/../jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

I've included the new DLARGS to get past Oracle being cranky, however, the build can't be upgraded to 6u32-b05 yet because construct.sh bombs during the build (http://java.net/projects/jdk-distros/sources/svn/content/trunk/utils/construct.sh?rev=373). Still not sure how to resolve.

You may need to download the JDK installer file manually for now. Oracle is getting cranky about it.

I may update the PKGBUILD with an option to download from my own server.

@tinhtruong -- That's a commented-out entry, with no effect on the installation. Might as well delete the line entirely.

tinhtruong commented on 2012-03-15 10:15

There's a typo in the PKGBUILD, line 68:
Original: #install -m755 jdk6.profile "${pkgdir}"/etc/profile.d/jdk5.sh
Should be: #install -m755 jdk6.profile "${pkgdir}"/etc/profile.d/jdk6.sh

Please correct this.
Thanks!

Just in case anybody comes wandering by, this was shamelessly taken and modified from the following AUR packages:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51909 - JRE6
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51907 - JDK6
