Ubuntu Lucid 10.4 Java install (sun)

I was trying to install Adito SSL VPN on a headless/gui-less Ubuntu 10.4 server, and I needed sun-java6-jdk and sun-java6-bin.  Low and behold, this isnt in the repositories by default, as it is under the “parters” repository.  In order to enable that, edit: /etc/apt/sources.list and make sure these lines are uncommented:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner

then, apt-get update && apt-cache search sun-java6 and you will see them.
