No necessary to do

Seems that your product for Linux doesn`t care about Linux Standard Base (LSB)
at all you installs your products whatever you want. But in Linux now we have
LSB. Seems that quite soon all or at least all distributions will made their
packages according to it, and your products will mess their compatibility with
Like example we trying to make our new version LSB compatible but as I can see
we will unable to say that we 100% compatible because one RPM will be not LSB
compatible and will bring mess to system after installation, so because we
unable to modificate sources or at least spec file. We hope that you will give
explanation for us what should we do to solve Java SDK`s LSB compatibility

WORK AROUND Name: bsC130419 Date: 08/21/2001 I don`t know break it SDK License or not but we can unpack your j2sdk-1_4_0-beta-linux-i386.bin and then make our own RPM which will be LSB compatible. Please contact if it`s illegal as soon as possible. ======================================================================
