Java 6 downloads for Linux?


Hi,

I'm looking for the latest Java 6 RPM (patch 65) for a 64-bit Linux CentOS distro. I can't find any file on Oracle's site, as it seems they have stopped supporting that version. Google doesn't seem to be helping either so I'm wondering if someone knows of an archive that may exist somewhere.

Thanks, - Dave

for the current CentOS 6.4 ( soon to be 6.5)
openJDK 1.6 is used
and is installed

to see
Code:
su -
yum search java 
--- the out put will have this in it ---

java-1.6.0-openjdk.i686

java-1.6.0-openjdk-demo.i686 : OpenJDK Demos

java-1.6.0-openjdk-javadoc.i686 : OpenJDK API Documentation
java-1.6.0-openjdk-src.i686 : OpenJDK Source Bundle

java-1.7.0-openjdk.i686 : OpenJDK Runtime Environment
java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel.i686 : OpenJDK Development Environment
java-1.7.0-openjdk-demo.i686 : OpenJDK Demos
java-1.7.0-openjdk-javadoc.noarch : OpenJDK API Documentation
java-1.7.0-openjdk-src.i686 : OpenJDK Source Bundle



-----then from the list the old 1.6 is----

yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk
Oracle 1.6 is not supported any longer by Oracle
time to upgrade to 1.7

but OpenJDK is NOT Oracles java

to see the version of the 1.6
Code:
yum info java-1.6.0-openjdk
--- the output of my SL6.4 install
Installed Packages
Name        : java-1.6.0-openjdk
Arch        : i686
Epoch       : 1
Version     : 1.6.0.0
Release     : 1.65.1.11.14.el6_4
Size        : 82 M
Repo        : installed
From repo   : sl-security
Summary     : OpenJDK Runtime Environment
URL         : http://icedtea.classpath.org/
License     : ASL 1.1, ASL 2.0, GPL+, GPLv2, GPLv2 with exceptions, LGPL+,
            : LGPLv2, MPLv1.0, MPLv1.1, Public Domain, W3C
Description : The OpenJDK runtime environment.

so to update TO 1.65
all you have to do is ( openjdk is installed by default ) is to run this
Code:
su -
yum update

0ne of them had a security issue. I forget which one but maybe that is why it isn't found.

Thanks for everyone's responses.

netnix99, I found this link on Oracle's site that suggests there are revisions to 6 beyond patch 45 -- http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ew-156328.html . I can't find downloads for the 1.6.0_65 they are talking about though. What am I missing?

WHY !!!! are you trying to use oracle
the current and ONLY supported version of CentOS 6 is 6.5

and 6.5 has this ALREADY in the repos and is the DEFAULT version for 1.6
java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.66.1.13.0.el6.i686.rpm
-- that is if you MUSE use the deprecated 1.6 version
1.7 is current

so to update to better than 65
all you need to do is do the REQUIRED upgrade to 6.5
6.4 IS NOT supported any longer

Code:
su -
yum -releaserver=6.5 upgrade
and the update 66 WILL BE INSTALLED

Woah ... easy, serenity now. Anyway I was not completely honest about CentOS. We have this

Code:
[dalvarado@mydomain ~]$ uname -a
Linux mydomain.com 3.4.68-59.97.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 5 07:40:09 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Perhaps making a switch to OpenJDK will be possible in the future, but for now, my marching orders were to find the 1.6.0_65 version of Oracle's JDK.

Oracle is no longer supporting 1.6
they killed it off

Are you still looking for the latest version of Java 6?

If you have already tried Java 7 and are facing issues running your Java Applets or applications, let us know the problems you encountered using Java 7. Updates for Java 6 are no longer available to the public. Oracle offers updates to Java 6 only for customers who have purchased Java support or have Oracle products that require Java 6.
