I'm getting some errors trying to install java sun-compat:

[root phoenix ~]# rpm -q jre
jre-1.6.0_03-fcs

[root phoenix ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i jpackage
jpackage-utils-1.7.3-1jpp.3.fc8

[root phoenix ~]# rpm -Uvh java-1.6.0-sun-compat-1.6.0.03-1jpp.i586.rpm 
warning: java-1.6.0-sun-compat-1.6.0.03-1jpp.i586.rpm: Header V3 DSA

[root phoenix ~]# yum list | grep -i jdk

I can't find jdk 1.6.0.3. So I uninstalled sun's jre, installed sun's jdk and 
installation worked. 

Still, I can't view cnn video. If I remember correctly,
cnn video used to be stored temporarily as /tmp/FlashXYZ. Doesn't seem to
be the case anymore?

Also, for my curiosity, the installation instructions (which I used in the
past) from sun don't mention anything about jpackage and sun-compat. 
Are these packages really necessary (for sun's jre), and if so, why?
