I installed Scala from one of the standard repository in Ubuntu, but have some problems with examples from this book.
If it type 'scala -version' it gives me:
Scala code runner version unknown version -- (c) 2002-2006 LAMP/EPFL

I assume it mast be very old if it says: "2002-2006"
Synaptic gives 2.3.0-1.1 as deb package version

The debian version does not work at all on Ubuntu.
I'm not sure why, but maybe because it required some exotic JVM (I mean GCJ). I believe we should have option to choose more standard version of JVM, and it will be even better it it will pick-up Java installed on computer automatically.

Could you look at this problem, and maybe give Ubuntu users a warning to not use Scala from debian, and one from official Ubuntu repositories.

Just get it from the, I seems to work fine on my machine which runs Ubuntu Hardy 64bit and Fedora 9 64bit. Ubuntu seems to have a rather ridiculous policy of not upgrading a package until the next release :(, so don't get it from the repo.
