Java update SuSE 10.0


SuSE 10.0

I need to update java jre1.5.0_05.
Current version 1.4.2 installs with SuSE.
I removed java with YaST, but I only removed the “Java (TM) 2 Runtime Environment”, not sure if that is enough?

When I tried to install jre1.5.0_05. (jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin) it said that it was already installed. Just as it shows here.
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm
So I ran “ls” and just as the picture it showed it as installed and it is present under “/usr/java/jre1.5.0_05”.

However it is not working.
When I run “java -version” it comes up with nothing and firefox crashes at the test at java site.

So I tried the following but that didn't work or I am doing it the wrong way.

I am a newbie and I think that I am missing something really basic. Could you please tell me what that might be.
Thank you.

I seem to recall I had some similar "nonsense" when I was running SuSE 9.3 Pro. I just uninstalled everything that was listed in the YaST software manager, then followed those instructions.

From memory, that seemed to do the trick - Oh, but I was after the SDK, not the JRE (which comes in the SDK anyway). I don't know if that matters or not.

regards

John

Lots of stuff shows up when I search on java in YaST about 50 items or more.
Could you please either be specific on what needs to be deleted or how I should do a more accurate search with YaST?
Do I need to reinstall jre1.5.0_05 again?

edit
Removed all in YaST that seemed to have something to do with the “Runtime Environment”.
On reinstalled of “jre1.5.0_05” from the .rpm extracted from the .bin YaST said there was 14 conflicts. I let it remove all conflict files and it install “jre1.5.0_05” to “/usr/java/jre1.5.0_05”.

When I run “java -version” nothing comes up?

.....
Not sure what the hell I did but now it is working.
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml
Here it shows 1.5 and before it was 1.4 and told me old version.

But I did the above. Then I install the 1.4 from the install disc and 1.5 showed up with an “lock” in YaST again.
Makes no sence to me....but I removed it all all. Then installed “jre1.5.0_05”. Then installed the “Runtime Environment” 1_4_2 from disc and now it works? ohh well why not....

I am pretty sure the “jre1.5.0_05” installed to “/usr/java/jre1.5.0_05” the first time during installation of the OS but it sure didn't work.

You'll have to forgive me, what you've posted was pretty much what I got as well. I've been wracking my brains to try and recall what I must have done to get it going.

But I'm still digging around to see if I posted anywhere what/how I achieved this.

I certainly had to do this as root
Code:
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jre1.5.0_04
Obviously you'd have to make sure that that command has the numbers for the latest version that you're trying to install.

Plus, heres a link to what I was trying to do at the time (forget that I was trying to get "OpenLaszlo" running, and try the things that mention Java).

Otherwise, as I can't recall what else I might have done, you might look at the Novell/SuSE forum here at LQ and see if that throws anything up or maybe here as well.

I'm sorry, thats about the best I can come up with.

regards

John

That sure looks like pretty much the same deal.
Thank you where much for posting it and for the links.
I still don't really get it but it nice to know that I am not crazy ;-)
