Thread: Doubt about Java...

    Default Doubt about Java...

    I was revisiting a website that I liked pretty much (and you can see why):
    nintendo8.com
    But it says I don't have Java installed, or version may be incompatible.

    1. Is there a way to make these sites to work with Java openJDK openSUSE comes with?
    2. If not, how should I install Java, downloading from its website or by repository?
    3. If I have to install Java, must I blacklist or uninstall openJDK?

    Thanks in advance.

    FF23.0.1
    java OpenJDK 7 and IcedTea 7
    works like a charme...

    What browser are you using?
    That page is also using javascript. Do you have it enabled?

    Seems I just needed to do a system global update.
    Now at least some games load (others don't or having ugly issues).

    Anyway, I'd like to reiterate questions 2 and 3, just to try...

    Thanks again.

    I am running Opera - not the somewhat lacking current complete rewrite which is also available. Don't think this matters though. The page is fine for me even using Konq.

    Try this page. You should also make sure that java is enabled in your browser.

    What are the Linux 64-bit RPM Java installation instructions ?

    and this one

    Java Downloads for All Operating Systems

    I did this a few weeks ago and also ran the remove older versions. However as the what version of java am I running scripts doesn't seem to work I may still be using an old version;

    However if I ask in the console thus

    Code:
    john@linux-448o:~> java -version
    java version "1.7.0_40"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.1) (suse-8.18.1-x86_64)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b50, mixed mode)
    john@linux-448o:~>
    I do get a result. Now I should check that this is the latest version. I saved the rpm. Opening the rpm with ark and looking at "release" a text file i can see that it is. I have never managed to find out how icetea fits in with this. There is some info about concerning so called version 6 java which is no longer supported.

    It may not be wise to remove old versions of java. I understand some applications can choose which one they want to use. There are a number of cross platform java applications available. Nothing to do with web pages but worth remembering.

    Am I the only one getting problems with this site?
    nintendo8.com
    And all its related pages...


    Yes, I said I just updated my system and some games started to work, but with no sound, but others just a black screen. The link "switch to Java version" below just doesn't work. Oh, and after trying 2 or 3 games I opened this page:
    snessy.com/all/
    Waited till it finished to load, and after a minute or so my PC's screen started to flash in black, until graphic environment just crashed and my entire screen went totally black. Tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 to enter console, but not even that worked! My kernel was all crashed!
    I haven't tried to open those sites again from my PC again, and that crash hasn't occured again.


    Then tried on a Windows PC with Windows 7 x64, which does have installed Java jre 7 update 13 (though 64 bit because it was installed with Netbeans). Almost same symptoms. Some games just reidrected to Java site for instalaltion. Even installing also Java 32 bit, with this, sometimes the switch to Java version link worked but after clicking "allow" on the applet it threw an excpetion.

    Oh, and in this same Windows rig, I installed a tool I used to use at shcool, the Microchip Libraries for Applications installer. It checks for Java when it's done installing (I don't know why). It didn't recognize neither of the Java installations. Of course the Windows rig wasn't mine, actually it was at school........

    I need to get home in order to post more details. But am I the onlyone getting uggly issues with Java even out home?

    I could play the games online in both javascript and java mode in
    nintendo8.com and i have installed oracle jre as indicated in my
    previous post . Also the java version of the game does have sound
    whereas javscript doesn't have it.

    I running KDE and Opera 12.16 not the Opera rewrite which still lacks many features.

    It's a default installation. Mentioned because another aspect might be the various Java permissions.

    Opera is easy to install. They provide an rpm. Just select OpenSuse here

    Opera Web Browser | Faster & safer | Download the new Internet browsers free

    Main difference to others is using F8 to highlight the address bar and reading what the others keys do - Opera do assume that people can and may want to use a keyboard and random use of the function keys may leave people a bit stuck.
