I am trying to install JRE in Debian Linux.I tried this command and it got installed successfully,
apt-get install sun-java6-jre
after that the
/usr/lib/jvm got deleted from me unintentionally.Now when I am trying to install it using the same command it is giving me the message that no new packages are installed as JRE is already installed.
The problem is I am not able to install the new JRE and also not able to use the previously installed as
/usr/lib/jvm got deleted from me
The key word here is
apt-get install --reinstall sun-java6-jre
Remove the installation using:
sudo apt-get remove sun-java6-jre
and then try installing again.
