If you want to install the Java compiler as well as the runtime environment, the easiest thing to do is to [https://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp get it directly from Sun]. Take care to use the "Linux self-extracting file" version. Converting the RPM with {{{alien}}} will not work.

Then follow the instructions as set forth on JavaPackageBuildNewVersions to create a .deb file you can install using {{{dpkg}}}.
