  1. Hello.

    I’ve tried to install java using the guide here. But when I run the make-jpkg command I get this:

    $ make-jpkg IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.2-9.0.ppc.tgz
    Creating temporary directory: /tmp/make-jpkg.LUBlTK6060
    Loading plugins: blackdown-j2re.sh blackdown-j2sdk.sh common.sh ibm-j2re.sh ibm-j2sdk.sh j2re.sh j2sdk-doc.sh j2sdk.sh j2se.sh sun-j2re.sh sun-j2sdk-doc.sh sun-j2sdk.sh

    Detected Debian build architecture: powerpc
    Detected Debian GNU type: powerpc-linux-gnu

    No matching plugin was found.
    Removing temporary directory: done

    No .deb file is created
    Have you got any ideas how to make this work?
