Thanks for your reply and your advice Kent. I'm looking into how to
update my ports now but in the meantime if the current version is 09 can
anyone tell me how I can get hold of that ? As I said if I follow the
link mentioned ( http://java.sun.com/ webapps/ download/
Display?BundleId=7479 ) in the error message I'm only offered the 08
Also sorry to be obtuse but I'm still not clear what the "Linux GNUZIP
Tar shell script" is - is that another name for
"j2sdk-1_3_1_08-linux-i586.bin" (and variants) ?
