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
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
