    Question help installing jre-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin.

    Hello,

    New to openSUSE 11.1

    I downloaded jre-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin to folder - home/username/bin.

    I would like to use the KDE4 install software GUI not Terminal to install the jre for firefox and konqueror.

    Could some one help me do this?

    Go into the YaST Control Center and click Software Management. Search for sun. Install java-1_6_0-sun update 12 is in the repos.

    Also, you'll still need to create a symbolic link in console. Easy as this. Open up a terminal.
    Gain rootly powers by typing su and then your root password.
    cd into the browser-plugins folder
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins
    create the symbolic link to the java 1.6.0 update 12 plugin
    Code:
    ln -s /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7
    /libjavaplugin_oji.so
    Restart your web browser and it should work after that. Test it here Verify Java Version

    If you still would just like to use the .bin file I'll tell you how to do it with the LEAST amount of terminal usage I know. Open dolphin or konqueror and go to the location of the jre-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin file. Right click it and go to properties. Click permissions and click the box that says "is executable" so it's checked. Then open a terminal and type this.
    Code:
    /home/username/bin/jre-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    After you agree this will make the .rpm for you. Look back in /home/username/bin and there will be a jre-6u12-linux-i586.rpm
    Click it, enter your root password, and Yast should take over.

    You'll still need to create a symbolic link to java for your web browser though and this symbolic link is located in a different place than if you installed from the repos.

    cd into the browser plugin folder
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins
    create a symbolic link
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_12/plugin/i386/ns7
    /libjavaplugin_oji.so
    Restart your browser and it should work! Once again you can test your installation here Verify Java Version

    Question Re: help installing jre-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin.

    Thanks so much.

    After an os update in openSUSE 11.1 KDE4, I was then able to get to Sun Repos. Works great in this flavor of openSUSE.

    I then wanted to find the Sun Repos in openSUSE 11.1 GNOME. First I wanted to update the GNOME version of openSUSE 11.1. I got this error message - Cannot access instailation media (medium 1). Check whether the server is accessible.

    I put the url it was complaning about in firefox.

    Index of /debug/distribution/11.1/repo/oss


    Firefox found the above url just fine.

    Please give me some more help.

    If you can get into the OpenSUSe repositories from firefox, then just download the .rpms from the repositories in firefox. They'll still open up in yast and they'll still download in the same place.

    The difference between the rpm in the OpenSUSE repositories and the rpm that java gives you is the location of the installation. You can then continue to make the symbolic link just as if you installed the rpm from the OpenSUSE repositories.

    And also, the Java repository

    Sorry, you want the Java .rpm from the update repository
    Index of /update/11.1/rpm/i586

    You want java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u12-1.2.1.i586.rpm
    and
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u12-1.2.1.i586.rpm

    Hope this helps!

    Is it necessary to have both Java-Sun & Java-openJDK in the same install? I have both of these, but cannot find "/etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7" -there is no 'plugin' directory in /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0.

    If both are not needed, which version of Java should be uninstalled ?

    Also, what is the relation to 'IcedTea' Java version ?

    No, you can only use _one_ of them at the same time.

    Use:

    Code:
    # update-alternatives --config java
