Looking for RPM download to enable JRE installation


Hi

From where may I download an RPM package? I want to use it to install Java Plugins.
Other information: My browser - Mozilla-1.6; My platform - Fedora2;

Much Thanks

Tj

Hi

I decided to select the non-RPM download. I recently installed Fedora2 and perhaps it doesn't have RPM as did my previous platform, RedHat.

Thanks for your help.

Fedora is Redhat. They just renamed it when they stopped doing the normal desktop distro, plus fedora is more community supported (as I understand it), so of course it'll have RPM (which is Redhat Package Manager).

Hence if you have snags with the src version of JRE, then just go back and get the RPM!

Thanks.
I downloaded the RPM version again. It was the symbolic linking that presented some difficulties. However, eventually, this second try was successful.
