you can get the .rpm from java.sun.com, download the latest update for the JRE. there should be installation instrutcions that are easy to follow.
Here are the ones I had installed from the repos.
But have since removed, because I'd forgot you could get the .rpm from Sun Java.
I downloaded the .rpm for both the i586 system as well as an AMD64 based system.
But now my question is this.
The program/installer I downloaded from Mandriva was/is the x86_64
when I was running this Program in KDE it said I was on a i586 system which of coarse showed I am running a Dual Core Processor.
But here is where my question comes in.
I'm running a AMD Athlon64 X2 Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor.
Which one of these .rpm's Should I use?
I'd really HATE to Hose my system, and have to do a complete reinstall.
I just got it back up and runnin, from my change from KDE to Gnome I only changed because their Version of Gnome offers me a couple of things that theirs of KDE didn't.
If you could give me a fairly good idea of which way I should go I'd sure be most Grateful.
I think I should use the i586 installer/.rpm but I just want to make sure... Thanks Again for your help...
