I'm trying to create a database in Open Office, which of course on ~amd64 is
the binary version. When I tell it to create a new database it tells me it
can't find a JRE, and please to restart OOo after installing one. So I go
to http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/java.xml and follow the instructions to
install virtual/jre. That installs several things, including
dev-java/sun-jdk-1.5.0.08, but not a JRE. So I install
dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.5.0.08-r1 as well and try OOo again, with the same
result. So next I run java-config to set the VM first to the JDK and then
to the JRE, but still OOo can't find a JRE.
Each re-installation of JRE or JDK ends with an error:
Expected "/usr/share/java-config-2/nsplugin/sun-jdk-1.5-javaplugin.so" to
exist, but it doesn't.
!!! Error: Perhaps "sun-jdk-1.5" isn't a valid name of VM built with
Creating /usr/share/java-config-2/nsplugin/ manually doesn't help either.
What am I doing wrong?
