Java Runtime is not installing properly ...need help in procedure
 
Hello,
Needless to say that I am newbie. I need help to install Java Runtime on Linux SUSE 10.2. on a 64bit processor. I followed the instruction explain on
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml

but without any luck, Java is not installed when i try to confirm its installation in Firefox, by typing about: plugins in the Location bar to confirm that the Java Plugin is loaded.

My procedure for manual installation :

1. Downloaded Linux self extrated binary file; for Linux x64 from http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp
The file that downloads is jre-6u20-linux-x64.bin.

***However in another set of instruction, from http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000011400.xml, said that
the name of the files is jre-1_5_0_02-linux-amd64.bin
This one seems like the correct one to down because my system is 64bits. Though there are not option to select this file. This comment make me wonder if I have downloaded the correct file.



2. Install in directory cd /usr/java

3. I then perform the enable and configure procedure by creating a symbolic link to libjavaplugin.so in the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory.

I follow the command:
Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.

ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0/plugin/x64/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
(***is this the correct command**)


Is my procedure correct? I am downloading the correct file for my system LINUX SUSE 10.2 64bits

Please help.

Is there a reason you're not using your package manager?

I will look into it today. Thank you for your response.

You should always use your package manager if possible. There are good reasons to build from source, but it should be a last resort. :) Let us know how it goes.

I use the page you provided. The process reached 100% of the process. At the end of the installation it asked it I had another program to " install or remove". I said no.

But I want to know if I can perform a test ensure that it installed properly? What website can I used to test it?


If I use the link: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml to test it, I received a message saying:
"Additional plugins are required to display the media on this page" And when I click on it, it takes me to a window
for Plugin Finder that Java Runtime Environment is the plugin available for download. That window down loads the same file i tried to install: jre-6u20-linux-x64.bin.

Can you think of anything else that might work?
