Re: java again really

I'd like to be wrong about this, but it looks like jpackage.org is no longer providing current fedora-compatible packages, or at least not documenting them as such, and unlike some of the other packages that have been incorporated directly into the fedora repository, java-sun-compat is clearly missing. I'm not running anything newer than FC6 myself (I was waiting for jpackage.org to catch up...) so maybe I've overlooked something.

I can tell you that they work fine with F7 and F8 and it works with F8 x86_64 too.

I think it is the simplest route to get Sun's Java up on Fedora. I haven't found any problems with it. Of course tomorrw's change could end all of that in a heartbeat :-).

Is it just accidental that the old version still works? Do you trust the yum repository now that the fedora version has probably introduced conflicts or do you have to locate and manually download individual files and hope they work? Is this progress?
