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?

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?
