Thread: Installing Java

  1. #1

    Default Installing Java

    I have tried various methods to try and install Java

    1. Though Firefox plugin manager - Failed
    2.Though Firefox MANAUL install. Downloaded the .rpm file and used softwareinstaller to run the file. looked like it was working and asked for a PW but didn't work.
    3.Though the Software Installation Manager on the desktop. Installed Jave 1-5, 1-6 (and the 2 plug ins)

    Can't figure this one out.

    Any help appreciated.

    Sure, install java via YAST, if you dont know what that is its the system control center for openSUSE.
    it should be under system> configuration > install software.
    The installer should pop up and look for java, install java-1_6_0-sun and java-1_6_0-sun-plugin by clicking on the boxes and selecting install.
    Using the software installer should be easy to figure out.
    Keep in mind, DONT, and I repeat DONT install java-1_6_0-openjdk or its plugins, if they are installed by mistake remove them.
    Software removal is also easy.

    Here is some aid, just keep in mind YAST has changed a little but not by much:
    http://en.opensuse.org/YaST/Modules/Software_Management

    Or just do it "the windows way"
    go here:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/

    and just click on the folder matching your kernel version (64bit or 32)
    11.1 packages will work in 11.2

    Theoretically you can, just keep in mind the one click installers wont work
    And dependencies might be a little rough too, right now the software for 11.2 is small so i dont blame you, but dont install anything major like a kernel or a ati driver or something.
    Just install software, but the dependencies might drive you a little crazy.

    oh... i'm getting crazy, you can be sure of that!!!

    (Pidgin keyring - openSUSE Forums)

    i'm finding a lot of challenges - as you can see - but i won't quit. I've bought a PC to put suse on it and it will have suse on it! Not windows, not anything else!!! Windows is Long Gone!!! (but i might get, in fact, a bit crazy hehe...)

    Thanks for your help, once again

    sorry i haven't replied sooner - Knocked my PC and the fan started making a funny noise. After sticking my finger in it to see what was up a few of the fan blades snapped.

    Taken me a few days to get a nice small fan. Nicked one from an old 486 setup in the end.

    Anyway!!

    I have already installed the java-1_6_0-sun and java-1_6_0-sun-plugin.

    I also installed java-1_5_0-sun and java-1_5_0-sun-plugin.

    Should this be removed?

    No not 64bit by the way.



    Also my system started doing updates.

    I get updates are being installed.. then the msgbox disappears and I get another (sometimes 4 at a time)

    I thought this must be normal but it has been installing for almost 2 hours. I am on a 20mb broadband and stuff normally downloads really quick. Can you confirm if this is normal? I only installed a week ago.

    Not normal.
    There have been very few updates, although a new install will start dragging in dependency stuff when you start adding other applications as you have.

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    will tell us what repos you have, which might be a clue to this updating.
