I have tried the same thing. First I tried to install java jre 1.6, but I
get an error from the java-package . Somehowe I installed java jre 1.5 with
some updates. I have java and the paths are ok, but again
red5_0.6.3-1_all.deb says that I must have sun-java5-bin . I`ve checked on
Debian for such package. There is only a reference, because it is not free
and must be installed vie java.com with the whole java package which comes
from the site. I have no luck installing red5 via .deb system. Can anyone
P.S. Try to unpack the red5-0.6.3.tar.gz . You should have ant installer,
but the newest version. Debian ethc hat a lover version, so I had to install
it manualy. Than you can start the server "ant server". Thats how I run red5
on debian, but this is only a temporary solution.
