    Default Oracle JDK-9 rpm install failed with errors

    I have tried to install the Oracle Java JDK 9 using the rpm and I get errors.

    I was following the guidance on the OpenSUSE web page "SDB:Installing Java" so I downloaded the latest version of Jave from the Oracle website and then used rpm to try an install:
    Code:
    :~/Downloads> sudo rpm -ivh jdk-9_linux-x64_bin.rpm
    [sudo] password for root: 
    Preparing...                          ################################# [100%]

    warning: %post(jdk-9-2000:9-ga.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
    I then downloaded the tar.gz file and have compared the contents with the /usr/java folder and can confirm that all the files are there in name anyway. I will just have to trust that the file contents are the same for now!

    Is there any obvious way for me to check how far the install has progressed?
    Has the browser plugin been put in place correctly?
    Have any "alternatives" been put in place before the update-alternatives ran into problems?

    Any help would be most gratefully received.

    Peter.

    Default Re: Oracle JDK-9 rpm install failed with errors

    Follow the Oracle instructions instead

    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/inst...-platforms.htm

    I recommend the instructions for installing RPM side by side with other Java versions (does not matter whether other versions exist as of today)

    Code:
    rpm -Uvh jdk-9.minor.security.patch_linux-x64_bin.rpm
    The output errors will be as you describe, but those are minor bugs... There is only one generic image file for all instead of the individually named image files the install is looking for. I doubt that the image files should make any diff but if it bothers you, you can go rename them to what the installer expected.

    As for the update-alternatives error, that also is likely minor and should be fixed up by someone, but won't affect actually using the SDK.

    View your existing java version with
    Code:
    java -version
    And switch between different installed Oracle and openjdk Java with
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config java
    Works fine for me, although as I describe I did not verify all features work (they should). Note that there are additional instructions for installing the web browser plugin at

    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/inst...plug-linux.htm

    And special instructions for installing only the server JRE package at

    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/inst...-platforms.htm

    Default Re: Oracle JDK-9 rpm install failed with errors

    Thanks for the link to the Oracle page.
    Unfortunately this does not appear to work on my system. The rmp loads OK but the alternatives are not set up.
    Code:
    :~> rpm -q --whatprovides java
    java-1_8_0-openjdk-1.8.0.144-15.2.x86_64
    jdk-9-9-ga.x86_64
    There is not option to change to the Java 9 install:
    Code:
    :~> sudo update-alternatives --config java
    [sudo] password for root: 
    There is only one alternative in link group java (providing /usr/bin/java): /usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk/bin/java
    Nothing to configure.
    I am still on the openjava version:
    Code:
    :~> java -version
    openjdk version "1.8.0_144"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.5.1) (suse-15.2-x86_64)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.144-b01, mixed mode)
    I hope that there is some way round this. Maybe I will just have to create my own scripts.
    There is no man folder in the JDK-9 distribution so no manual pages.

    Peter

    If you used zypper or "rpm -ivh" to install the rpm, you won't have support for multiple side by side java.

    You should uninstall your Oracle rpm, then install it <exactly> using the instructions I provided.

    Description :
    The Java Platform Standard Edition Development Kit (JDK) includes both
    the runtime environment (Java virtual machine, the Java platform classes

    tool libraries and other tools).
    
    The JDK is a development environment for building applications, applets
    and components that can be deployed with the Java Platform Standard
    Edition Runtime Environment.
    Distribution: (none)
    But not selected by alternatives:
    Code:
    :~/Downloads> java -version
    openjdk version "1.8.0_144"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.5.1) (suse-15.2-x86_64)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.144-b01, mixed mode)
    Not even available in alternatives:
    Code:
    :~/Downloads> sudo update-alternatives --config java
    There is only one alternative in link group java (providing /usr/bin/java): /usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk/bin/java
    Nothing to configure.
    So still at the same place. Looks like I will have to make the alternatives scripts myself.

    Unless I have still got something wrong....

    Default Re: Oracle JDK-9 rpm install failed with errors

    I may be able to find some time to tinker a bit with my install to see if I can guess what might have happened to yours.

    In the meantime,
    You might be able to develop some insights by inspecting the contents of of the rpm... I don't have it in front of me at the moment but typically you should see the files that are installed and the actual update-alternatives that is installed.

    If I were to guess,
    There's nothing wrong with the update alternatives, but your Java 9 files are probably in the wrong location.

    I doubt it should make a difference, but you should try installing using "su" and not "sudo" if you want to follow <exactly> what I did.
