Most of the sun/ibm/blackdown packages aren't that user-friendly to
set up. Dag has a jre in his repository that is quite nice and sets up
the java environment for you. If his package will not work, I would
recommend getting one of the jpackage nosrc java rpms and rebuilding
it using the sources from sun/ibm/blackdown. It will make them MUCH
nicer to deal with.
