dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of gvsig:

  Package openjdk-6-jre is not installed.

To connect to 52north.org insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.

adding --no-check-certificate to the wget command lets it
download, and presumably install.  now fixed?

sounds similar to the classic offline-mapfish issue in the

fixed in svn, I had the version number wrong. FWIW the
apt-get'able version is not useful in this particular case.

requires geoserver?

any error messages to follow if you start them from the command
line? see quickstart for building the gosmore cache the first
time you start it. build log looks ok.

the deb needs to be rebuilt for Ubuntu 12.04 or UbuntuGIS,

seems it is not present in UbuntuGIS's ppa for 12.04?

custom repo for the latest version is missing packages for
Precise, so it falls back onto the Ubuntu 12.04 official version,
which is rather poorly packaged. (I'm rather surprised it made
it past the Debian ftpmasters' scrutiny to be honest)
I've been hoping that upsteam would post their new pkg, but
if not I'll go in and clean up the launcher etc by hand.

also, the error check grep at the end of the build log gets
itself into a bit of a recursive loop.
