JDK? Yikes. I didn't need that on my NetBSD or Mac OS X systems when I was packaging mp3splt for pkgsrc. I'm pretty ignorant about other package systems, but judging from this page, looks like the command to try is "apt-get install mp3splt":http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-pkgtools.en.html
Yeah if only that would work ! Throws me some blurb, then says
Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
So I do that, and then it can't get the packages, throwing 404 HTTP errors:
Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... 2_i386.deb
404 Not Found
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
So I do 'apt-get -f install --fix-missing' and , after throwing the 404 errors again, apt-get proceeds to just sit there eating up all the cpu.
Lastly, I do 'apt-get update' and it throws me a lot of blurb, 404 error, and lastly the message
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Seems like apt-get update did not help any as the original install command still thros the same errors. Cripes, this hairy-fairy stuff does get on my nerves. So much for Linux saving the world... give me Windows anytime
I think I'll give up on trying to install anything. Earlier attempts to install the JDK 1.4 ended in a similar quagmire.
