I seem to recall I had some similar "nonsense" when I was running SuSE 9.3 Pro. I just uninstalled everything that was listed in the YaST software manager, then followed those instructions.
Lots of stuff shows up when I search on java in YaST about 50 items or more.
Could you please either be specific on what needs to be deleted or how I should do a more accurate search with YaST?
Do I need to reinstall jre1.5.0_05 again?
Removed all in YaST that seemed to have something to do with the “Runtime Environment”.
On reinstalled of “jre1.5.0_05” from the .rpm extracted from the .bin YaST said there was 14 conflicts. I let it remove all conflict files and it install “jre1.5.0_05” to “/usr/java/jre1.5.0_05”.
When I run “java -version” nothing comes up?
Not sure what the hell I did but now it is working.
Here it shows 1.5 and before it was 1.4 and told me old version.
But I did the above. Then I install the 1.4 from the install disc and 1.5 showed up with an “lock” in YaST again.
Makes no sence to me....but I removed it all all. Then installed “jre1.5.0_05”. Then installed the “Runtime Environment” 1_4_2 from disc and now it works? ohh well why not....
I am pretty sure the “jre1.5.0_05” installed to “/usr/java/jre1.5.0_05” the first time during installation of the OS but it sure didn't work.
