java runtime environment


My slackware system has the Java Runtime environment 1.5.0_4 pre-installed. There is now a update to this: version 5.0 update 6

I see that on the java site there is only a RPM and a self extracting file. How can I update the JRE in slackware?

u can install RPM in slackware or use the command

rpm2tgz

to convert it from rpm to .tgz format then use the

installpkg command to install it.

AFAIK sun also provides the jre install as a .bin file, download that then

do 'chmod +x <filename>' then ./<filename>
