Question Installing java-jdk using tar binaries


Hi everyone,

I'm working with a virtual machine built on a basic linux kernel which runs a small disk image on it with few libraries. You can think of it as a bare-bones Linux with virtually nothing on it.

I am trying to install java onto the disk image and I've downloaded the .tar binaries file from Oracle's website. I extracted it, and mounted the folder to the disk image. When I boot up the virtual machine and use the bash command "java -version", I get the following error:

java: error while loading shared libraries: libjli.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm quite sure I incorrectly installed java... it cant be as easy as drag and drop a few binaries, route the PATH=$PATH:"usr/java/bin", done... right?

The kernel doesn't have anything like "apt-get install" which would truly be easy.

Any suggestions / help with installing java using binaries?

Thanks

Since you are using the shared version of java, the dependencies (libraries, etc.) must be in place for java to function properly. If you use a static version instead, the dependencies are included. The static version is also much larger than the shared version.
