JDK/JRE Update

JDK/JRE 6 Update 25 are now included in the latest -Current update as per today. This update fixes some problems described in the Release Notes, but it doesn't have any security fixes, so users running previous update (24) is considered safe.

Newer fvvwn release is now included in /extra after it has been requested via LQ. Beware about this update as the location for system config file now moves to the standard /etc directory.

One last change is the introduction of a new script in /etc/rc.d/ directory. It's called rc.loop and it will check for loop devices. If it's modular and not previously loaded, it will be loaded by the script. Future kernels will use the modular part and to avoid big surprises, Pat decided to put it under 13.37.
