     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  critical  |   Milestone:  OSGeoLive7.9             
Component:  LiveDVD   |    Keywords:  postgis                  

 $ dpkg -l | grep libpostgis-java
  ... version 2.1.1-1~precise3 installed

 $ dpkg -L libpostgis-java | grep jar

 /usr/share/java/postgis.jar is a symlink which points to a non-existent

 so anything trying to use postgis.jar will fail.

 a possible work-around:
 # fix for package breakage
 rm -f /usr/share/java/postgis.jar
 ln -s /usr/share/java/postgis-jdbc-2.1.0~rc1.jar

 'apt-cache policy' shows that the package is installed from the osgeolive
