Description Petteri Räty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-23 18:30:25 UTC
betelgeuse@pena ~/mailer $ eselect java-vm list
Available Java Virtual Machines:
  [1]   icedtea6-bin
  [2]   sun-jre-bin-1.6
betelgeuse@pena ~/mailer $ man java
No manual entry for java
betelgeuse@pena ~/mailer $ file /home/betelgeuse/.gentoo/java-config-2/current-user-vm
/home/betelgeuse/.gentoo/java-config-2/current-user-vm: broken symbolic link to `/usr/lib/jvm/sun-jdk-1.6'

I think the shell initializer should switch the VM to something working. We could have a configuration setting for this in case someone wants to do things manually.
