Found a way around it, by changing the dlagent command (thanks arch maintainer person!)

It looks like their download page saves a session cookie when you click agree to the license agreement..I don't imagine the package script can simulate that very easily...f**ing oracle...

Yes, I think the download link might not be working, so you manually have to get it from the web page. The md5sum is correct. If anyone can find a good link to the archive let me know. Apologies for the inconvenience, I could not find any way around it (I also checked the AUR version to see if they had found a solution).

When trying to install the current version (7u55-1), which I am doing with the command

ccr -Su

(as I currentlt already have 7u45-1installed)
it fails with

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
The build failed.

The last succesful line output before that is 

javaws-launcher ... Passed

Thanks to the maintainers for this. I've installed jdk7 and jre7 with ccr and let it unintall openjdk7 for me. However something is still setting JAVA_HOME to the now non-existant /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk. I know I can override this, but I'd like to clean up such leftovers and I can't figure out where this is getting set. I've grepped for it under my home and under etc, but no dice. Any ideas where to find this?

This is how they did it for AUR, so I figured it is a more sensible way of providing it for us as well. Another option would be that jdk = jre+jdk yes. 

As long as it is in CCR you do get some duplication during download, but that would not be the case if this was prepackaged. I think splitting in smaller entities makes more sense from a technical standpiont (but I don't have a very strong opinion here).

I mean, why shouldn'e it be jdk alnone with jre and mark them conflict with each other?

Comment by: brli on Thu, 12 Sep 2013 11:52:22 +0000

have question:
doesn't jdk provide jre itself?
why should we seperate them and make jre a dep?
download twice and remove something isn't that wise though with low network connectivity
