Problem Installing NetBeans 7.3 on OpenSUSE 12.1


I try to install NetBeans 7.3 from the Gnome terminal using

Code:
sudo sh netbeans-7.3beta-linux.sh
This results in the following,

Code:
Configuring the installer...
Searching for JVM on the system...
Extracting installation data...
Running the installer wizard...
Can`t initialize UI
Running in headless mode
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.
They attempt to address a similar problem here and it refers me to this site. However, when I enter

Code:
/sbin/lspci | grep VGA
I get

Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18)
They do not appear to have a driver at that site for that graphics controller.

Any assistance with resolving this problem would be much appreciated.
Peter.

The Opensuse 12.1 ( about to hit it's End Of Life in 84 DAYS)
it using OpenJDK 1.6 by default
and is NOT using Oracles java 1.7


as to the intel "chip" on this laptop
it is built in to the kernel and already in use

also WHY are you not using zypper ???

netbeans is in the "openSUSE-12.1-Oss" repo

Thank you for your reply.

I think JRE was removed from the openSUSE installation because of licensing issues. I do not know the details.

I was able to install netbeans 7.3 when I removed the sudo but it installed it under my home directory instead of under the root directory. I got around this by logging in as root and installing NetBeans 7.3 without sudo.

In the past I tried installing using zypper on OpenSUSE or apt-get on Ubuntu (I forget which). But it did not seem to give me a choice of which packages to install. I like the have the full package version that has all the languages supported. Maybe there are switches I could use.

Thanks,
Peter.
