I'm having a little problem here: I got the amazon free usage tier to test it, launched a ami-465c6932 (Ubuntu 10.10 32bit iirc) on an eu west server. I installed postgresql and made sure it is persistent using an EBS. Till this point all is cool. The problem is I now need to install java (as I want to deploy a JEE app using tomcat) so I did "sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk" but it froze at some point. Now after restarting it told me I need to do "sudo dpkg --configure -a" which I did. The problem is it also froze:
ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a Setting up ca-certificates-java (20100412) ... creating /etc/ssl/certs/java/cacerts... done. Setting up openjdk-6-jre-headless (6b20-1.9.1-1ubuntu3) ...
And it's been like this for about 15mins now. Did i screw something up? Is there anything I can do to actually install my beloved java on that cloud?
@Edit: ok I found out it's a knows bug with the micro instance, and here's how to solve it http://ubuntu-smoser.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-rebundle-ubuntu-1010-maverick.html
