I am running on Mandrake 10.1 Download Version. It just rocks, i have forgotten Windows... I am Newbie to linux, had my share of trial and error runs before getting used to Linux.
I have a problem with JRE, i am just not able to have the JRE go on, Limewire and other java application works fine, if i have the opera or firefox test for java runtime Env, it fails... I have followed instruction to the letter, but still no go.
Can someone help me in Getting JRE up and running.
download the RPMs to a folder
and then add that folder in the media manager in the MCC
then install the RPMs as usual
you shouldn't have to do any configuring
it should all be done for you
if you install the RPM
Note : the J2RE file is fairly big
so may take a while on dial-up
I dont know about kaffe
i am having a similar problem to 'manmad' who posted on the software forum on the 20th of aug 2005, i installed the self extracting binary of sun's j2re1.4.2_09 and still cant view java applications, the read me doesnt seem to tell me how to activate it, or if, after the installation, i need to do anything further before i can start playing the java game.
was going to try what 'Penguinpwdbox' suggested, but my /j2re1.4.2_09/plugin/i386 folder doesn't have a 'libjavaplugin_oji.so' file in it, it has three folders "ns4" "ns610" and "ns610-gcc32" all containing one of these 'libjavaplugin_oji.so' in it, want sure if i should link/copy one of these folders incase it was the wrong one... also the folder names didnt make a great deal of sense to me, so i couldnt(read: wouldn't) "wing-it"
I'm running fedora4 "complete installation" and have recently done a yum update, always use kde and mozilla/firefox are my only browsers/mail client on a amd64 939 3000+... not sure if any other information is relevant...
need j2re to run LimeWire... have tried the rpm since i installed the self installing rpm J2re1_4_2_09-linux-i586.bin (downloaded from sun's website), but it says one of it's dependencies "j2re" is missing.
any help would be appreciated... also, if someone could tell me how i can change my profile so i can put in my full system specs, that'd be great, thanks in advance
type in the rpm you want
and do whatever you need to do
to get fedora to find the rpm and install it
but Mandrake has a media manager where you can add a folder
and the rpm's in it to its list of rpms that it can use
a handy little tool if you just want one or two rpms
hope this helps
actually installing the rpm
you should ask in the fedora forum to get the right advice
but usually installing a rpm is easier than
self extracting tarzip or whatever files
