Hi list -
have recently started with debian etch (sort of know what I'm doing in
bsd, linux is a new adventure).
I want to install jdk (and tomcat) by the simplest means, but DON'T
want to install x11 stuff.
the standard etch package for jdk1.5 seems to require x11. Is there a
way to install this without installing x?
(there may be a generic apt/aptitutde answer, but it doesn't appear so
(there is a way to mark a BSD machine as not wanting x)
or do I have to go with the (pre-etch) two step install to do this?
any pointers (including pointers to generic apt no-x11 configuration
that I've missed - though I have search for it) very welcome
Most of the X11 packages that the JDK wants to install are
recommendations. You can use aptitude to find out which are required and
deselect everything else (at least this is what I did).
