jmchaffiehello, thanks for helping me out...03:17
jmchaffiewell several sites gave varied symbolic links to try.. I've tried them all, no luck03:17
jribI see03:17
jmchaffieI've tried java 5 and 6, with the plugin packages.. and still no luck03:18
jribwell, do this: sudo aptitude purge sun-java5-plugin && sudo aptitude install sun-java5-plugin03:18
jmchaffiekeeps reporting I have java 1.4.203:18
jmchaffieok just a sec03:18
jribor do you want 6?03:18
jribk, just let me know if you chose 5 or 6 after03:19
jmchaffiemakes no difference to me.. 5 is fine, most websites and web apps work with 503:19
jribk, doesn't really matter03:19
jribI just need to know which :)03:20
jmchaffieit just finished reinstalling the plugin03:20
jmchaffieshould I try firefox now?03:20
jribnow, close firefox03:20
jribok now in a terminal, what does this return: ps -ef  | grep firefox03:21
jmchaffie1000     31633 31343  0 20:22 pts/0    00:00:00 grep firefox03:22
jribok, now start firefox03:23
jmchaffiewhen I go test it a suns site... it still tells me I'm running 1.4.203:24
jmchaffieI'm running 32-bit feisty if that helps any...03:24
jribhttp://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml here you mean?03:24
jribargh, I don't have java installed on this machine, so I'll need you to read some stuff to me, what does this return:  update-java-alternatives --help03:25
jmchaffieupdate-java-alternatives [--jre]  [--plugin]  [ -t|--test|-v|--verbose] 03:25
jmchaffie           -l|--list [<jname>] 03:25
jmchaffie           -s|--set <jname>03:25
jmchaffie           -a|--auto03:25
jmchaffie           -h|-?|--help03:25
jribdoes it says "list" somewhere?03:26
jribk, now do: update-java-alternatives --list03:26
jmchaffiejava-1.5.0-sun 53 /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun03:26
jmchaffiejava-6-sun 63 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun03:26
jmchaffiejava-gcj 1041 /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj03:26
jmchaffieis there a way to purge the other ones perhaps?03:27
jribk, now do: sudo update-java-alternatives --set java-6-sun     (we'll choose 6)03:27
jribalright, now show me:  ls -l /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/03:28
jribif it's really long, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org and give me a link03:28
jmchaffieok .. hold on.. not really long, but using pastebin...03:29
jribrun this command: dpkg -S /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so03:31
jmchaffieit says not found03:32
jribok, now run this: sudo rm /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so03:33
jmchaffieok it took that03:33
jribnow close firefox and start it again03:33
jmchaffieHEY! :) Java version 1.6.0!! Thanks a mint! of course sun wants me to get update 2 but who gives a rip! lol.. Man I really appreciate it. Nothing was working!03:35
jmchaffieso by removing that plugin, it forced it to use the other one we installed?03:35
jribfirefox uses the first one it finds03:36
jmchaffieThat makes sense now. Well like I said, thanks a mint. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out.03:37
jmchaffieI'm gonna go take an online test that needs java... lol take care.03:38

jribhi Bosambo03:22
jribdebian packages from debian.org on ubuntu tend to break your system03:22
jribdid you add the debian repository to your sources.list or install manually?03:22
jribhow many?03:23
jribah ok, that's not bad then, just revert back to the ubuntu version03:23
=== jrib hopes apt-get will cooperate
jriblets do libc6 first then03:23
jribwhat does this return atm: apt-cache policy libc603:24
BosamboInstalled: 2.6.1-103:24
Bosambo  Candidate: 2.6.1-103:24
Bosambo  Version table:03:24
Bosambo *** 2.6.1-1 003:24
Bosambo        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status03:24

Bosambo        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com feisty/main Packages03:24
Bosambo        500 http://mirrors.kernel.org feisty/main Packages03:24
jribk, to have apt-get install the ubuntu package, just do:  sudo apt-get install libc6=2.5-0ubuntu1403:25
BosamboErm...ok it's telling me it will REMOVE a giant list of packages including everything to do with gstreamer, OpenOffice, gnome-terminal, firefox....to name a few03:27
jribwhat were the other two packages you installed?03:28
BosamboI decided to change that to: sudo aptitude install libc6=2.5-0ubuntu14...and its just showing the two packages to DOWNGRADE03:29
BosamboNot trying to uninstall everything else03:29
BosamboIt wants to downgrade libglib2.0-0 as well03:30
Bosambothe last package I installed was gtk+-2.10.13-dev03:31
Bosamboor something like that03:31
jribas long as it's downgrading to ubuntu versions that seems fine, you can pastebin the output if you want03:32
BosamboNo output...it seemed to just go fine...cheers...that seems to have done it!03:35
jribk, yeah stick to ubuntu packages03:35
jribapt-get build-dep gimp   should give you the dependencies you need03:35
BosamboWill do03:35
BosamboThanks a lot man03:35
