The summary of email conversation from earlier today (which did not go
to the list - sorry)

Part 1:

the a command:  apt-cache search java | grep sun will give me the only
jdk being sun-java6-jdk

meaning that apt-get install sun-java5-jdk=1.5.0-11-1ubuntu1 can not
be installed as it does not exist

and sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk=1.5.0-11-1ubuntu1 will not work
cause it's java6

the command: apt-get install sun-java-jdk5 did not work either at the
package was not found.

Part 2:

perhaps a possible solution: changed the sources.list to:

deb edgy main restricted
deb edgy-security main restricted
deb edgy-updates main restricted

## The source packages (only needed to recompile existing packages)
#deb-src edgy main restricted
#deb-src edgy-security main restricted
#deb-src edgy-updates main restricted

## All community supported packages, including security- and other updates
deb edgy universe multiverse
deb edgy-security universe multiverse
deb edgy-updates universe multiverse

then apt-get update
then apt-cache search java | grep sun

got both sun-java5-jdk and sun-java6-jdk  currently running apt-get
install sun-java5-jdk all goes well it will be a solution. But does
that mean that there is a difference between the repository mirrors?

Thank you for all your help!
