I'm having a spot of trouble updating my Java. Portage wants a certain version, but Oracle no longer has it available.

Code:
>>> Emerging (32 of 82) dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin-1.8.0.40-r1::gentoo

!!! dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin-1.8.0.40-r1 has fetch restriction turned on.
!!! This probably means that this ebuild's files must be downloaded
!!! manually.  See the comments in the ebuild for more information.

 * Fetch failed for 'dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin-1.8.0.40-r1', Log file:
 *  '/var/tmp/portage/dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin-1.8.0.40-r1/temp/build.log'
 *
 * Oracle requires you to download the needed files manually after
 * accepting their license through a javascript capable web browser.
 *
 * Download the following files:
 *   jdk-8u40-linux-x64.tar.gz
 * at 'http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html'
 * and move them to '/usr/portage/distfiles'
 *
 * If the above mentioned urls do not point to the correct version anymore,
 * please download the files from Oracle's java download archive:
 *
 *    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-javase8-2177648.html#jdk-8u40-oth-JPR
 *


Unfortunately that last link there is dead.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-javase8-2177648.html#jdk-8u40-oth-JPR is not dead. Try again.

Hmm... it requires me to have an Oracle account. I thought those needed to be paid for, or I had to have a company to use them.

I'm trying, it wants an Oracle account. It won't let me download it without one, and you need a company to get one.

Seems to be the case. I wonder what Oracle thought.

Perhaps you could use the 1.8.0.45 ebuild for now (from ~arch)? The respective JDK is downloadable.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant under "development" version :)

Off-topic. Since Oracle is so funny about older versions of JDK, somehow the policy for stabilizing of oracle-jdk should be changed. Otherwise, what Gentoo considers to be stable is not available for free download, and is not considered as "good" by Oracle itself.

this, incidentally, is now the problem I'm having with oracle-jdk-bin-1.8.0.51 (the latest in the tree): it's no longer the current version, so I can't manually download the files any more. How long has the 8u60 version been out? Should I file a bug to get the package maintainers to update? Could this be better handled by using a -9999 version for the jdk that automatically uses whatever the latest version is?

Cheers,

EE

Why not try 3.0.0_pre04-r1 from http://data.gpo.zugaina.org/java/dev-java/icedtea?

I'm confused. I don't think anybody here was talking about icedtea, let alone such an old version. Does that somehow provide the functionality of oracle-jdk-bin?

Code:
grep oracle /etc/portage/package.mask
dev-java/oracle-jdk-bin
dev-java/oracle-jre-bin


I won t download every time from that oracle thing that thing anyway.

I have not upgraded libreoffice, but previous libreoffice compiled fine with above constraints...

So you can force portage to ignore oracle at all and everything works as far as I can tell here.

You can download (as far as i know) only the most current JDK/SDK without having a Oracle-Account.
For older versions like in your case you can create a fake account (which is for free) and download all older version in their archive.
Sucks a bit but as far as i remember the reason for this is they want "usual" users to download always the most updated version because old versions contain as we all know mostly a lot of bugs..
