Java Plugin issue in Centos 5 (RedHat 5)
Just installed Centos 5 and attempted to browse a website. Linux replied that I needed Java plugin and if I wanted to download and install it. I clicked 'yes'. Linux informed it cannot do it and a manual install was
necessary. It displayed a web page from SUN with the
plugin to download ...I downloaded the plugin in /usr/local and followed SUN's install instructions ...
until it says install rpm.... When I attempted to install the rpm it replied as follows:
[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/local
[root@localhost local]# ls
bin games jre-6u1-linux-i586.rpm lib lost+found share
etc include jre-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin libexec sbin src
[root@localhost local]# rpm -iv jre-6u1-linux-i586.rpm
Preparing packages for installation...
package jre-1.6.0_01-fcs is already installed
As noted above these are 2 different packages, judging by the name... Am I missing something?
How can resolve this java issue so that I can browse the website which requires it. ...
Thanks for any suggestion and/or assistance.
