sorry - I forgot to mention how this error happened and how to reproduce (afterall I cannot reproduce anymore).

I followed steps mentioned here:

to implement current Oracle JDK 1.7

During step;
# alternatives --install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_07/jre/bin/javaws 20000
it failed, as there was missing link /usr/bin/javaws
(all other went fine: java, javac, ,...)

So I thought I check it via the visual tool "galternatives", but it hung.
I think this caused the error.

Then I finally fixed it by using alternatives directly (I forgot again what I did to fix it). 

Afterwards "galternatives" was fine as well (no  errors anymore)

Thank you and regards,
