Installing JDK 6 version 14 with yum

Hi All,

I am having difficulty installing Java Development Kit 6 version 14 with yum. Is there a bash command sequence that you can advise me on?

Thanks, Rasaan

yum install java?

Do you have an error message? That'd be useful. If you don't tell us the difficulties we can't solve them.

AFAIK, you cannot install the sun jdk with yum at all. Either you use the openJDK or you download the sun jdk and you install it with rpm -ivh. Alternatively, you can check out the instructions on

yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin

This package contains just the Java Runtime Environment. To develop Java programs, install the java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel package. Install all the OpenJDK 6 packages, including the API documentation, by using the wildcard java-1.6.0-openjdk*

The channel #fedora on is the easiest and probably the faster way to get answers to questions like this one.
