convert from jre-...-rpm.bin into jre-...rpm
Ok...i do not excel with linux so i gotta ask a few questions...i use linux suse 9.3 pro and i was trying to install jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin but i don't know how to convert/transform the file from a .bin into a rpm executable [to be installed with Yast]...
the file was downloaded from sun java official site.
they do give some info there but it appears it doesn't work for me...can you peps help?
I expect it's just a case of running it.
Go to the directory where you downloaded the .bin file to and do:
If you have the full version of SuSe 9.3 java 1.5 can be installed from the dvd/cd's you have, otherwise I'd imagine follow the instructions on Sun's site.
Never installed java that way but I'd imagine as root:
chmod +x java-blah...blah
rpm -U java-blah-blah.rpm
and search for the java rpm for Suse
I think this might be what you are after
but I suggest you do your own search
to make sure
it will be a fairly big file
I'm not sure how you install rpms with Suse
but you probably use yast
with mandrake I download the file to a folder
and add that folder to my Mandrake media manager
Suse might do something similar
hope this helps
