I want to have a headless JDK on Ubuntu 14.04. As discussed in the question “How can I install a headless JDK on an Ubuntu Jaunty server?”, one option is to create my own jdk-headless package.
I have tried to create a dummy package using equivs:
Section: java Priority: optional Standards-Version: 3.9.2 Package: openjdk-7-jre-dummy4headless Maintainer: ... Depends: java7-runtime-headless Provides: openjdk-7-jre Description: fake package to allow us to use java7-runtime-headless instead of openjdk-7-jre for some small tools
However, this does not seem to satisfy the dependencies, i.e., when installing openjdk-7-jdk, it still wants to install openjdk-7-jre, even with this dummy package installed.
What should I modify to fix this?
