    Default Problems installing Java

    I thought I was going to star with a simple question. I chosed to try this guide when others have failed Installing Sun's Java on SUSE Linux - openSUSE. But using this guide I can't find "Software/Installation Source". If it's software repositories they mean then I don't get what to write in each field. Can some kind person help me?

    Best regards

    Go to Software Repositories and click on the Add button and follow the steps
    thereafter. (I hope I got your question right.)

    Yes you did. I thought it was software repositories. But I can't for my life figure out what to write in wich field. The guide is not very clear on that point. Do someone know?

    Best regards.

    The Sun Java (sdk /jre / browser plugin) rpms are listed and installable from the openSUSE Non-OSS repository. Do you not have that repository already linked? It should have added it during your initial installation.

    If you do not have it:

    Open up software repositories from within Yast.
    Click add
    In the Repository name type: openSUSE-11.0-Non-Oss
    In the protocol select: HTTP
    In the server name type: download.opensuse.org
    In the directory on server type: /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss/
    Click ok...

    Once you have that repository successfully added you can do a search on Sun Java. That should get you rolling.

    Can you tell us what happens when you try to install using Yast?
    Does Yast show the package as installed?
    What happens when you open a terminal window and type: java -version
    BZFlag: good clean fun. Sorta.

    I don't know wich file to install or wich folder to point to because evry time I try there's compatibility problems and such. Whitch is the correct directory to point to if you use the "http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/" mirror?

    Best regards...
