I have been trying to install the Sun Java 1.5.0 packages from
hoary-extras but when I run 'sudo apt-get install sun-j2re1.5' or search
for such a package in Synaptic/apt-cache, none exists.
However, I browsed to
http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/dists/hoary-extras/restricted/binary-i386/ and found that there is a package there and I have downloaded it and installed it by hand without bother.
Why is the package missing? Can it be fixed?
