Java obviously not working

Hello all,

first, I'm new to this list. Being a long term Mac and IRIX user,  
Kubuntu ist the first Linux I managed to get running on my G965- 
chipped Wintel box. I started in VMware, installed Edgy onto the  
physical hard disk, upgraded to feisty and the 2.6.20 kernel  
(essential for this chipset) by changing apt repositories. So far so  

To get some use out of this installation, I'd like to install  
OpenCascade. While being open source, it comes with a java based  
installer. Unfortunately, running Java doesn't look that well:

/tmp/isijp053E/bin/i386/native_threads/java: error while loading  
shared libraries: cannot open shared object  
file: No such file or directory

Indeed, there ist no such file in /usr/lib; the newest one there  
is ...libc6.0.8.... Worse, Adept/Synaptic don't indicate anything  
about such a library, the libc6.0.8-based version appears to be the  
newest one.

So my questions are:

- This is a dependency mismatch between java (= gij-4.1) and what's  
available in feisty's repositories, right?

- How would I debug (testsuite?) and resolve (compiling some even  
more recent package?) it?

- Should I file a bug about such issues?


P.S.: Yes, I googled the topic before writing this message.
