The purpose of this project is to create a Debian package of Java 1.5 so that it can be managed better than installing it manually.


  • Debian is already installed
  • Kurobox is accessible via FTP

Install FTP

After Debian is installed it’s a good idea to install an ftp server. The Kurobox must have internet access at this time in order to install.

  • Switch to root
# su root
  • Install proftpd
# apt-get install proftpd
  • When asked if this should be in inetd mode or standalone mode, select inetd mode if there isn’t going to be a lot of ftp traffic.
  • Verify you can log into the Kurobox via FTP.

Install Key Packages

This will install some of the basic things to assist in making life a little easier when dealing with Debian.
