Unhappy mandrake 9.2 -> 9.1


i just went thru the trouble of going from 9.2 rc2 to 9.1. I seem to have done so quite successfully but now i seem to have a minor problem.

I just can't seem to find j2sdk anywhere in the rpm ?

now while i did purchase 9.0, i downloaded both 9.1 and 9.2.

question is, does 9.1 downloaded have any restrictions on the packages i can install ????

if not then where the heck is my JRE package...

thanks a bunch

- perry

ps.
i'm pretty happy with what i see of 9.1 so far, 9.2 was really nice but simply could not deal with it's "unfinished" issues

the jre package does not come with the download edition. You can become a club member and then you'll have access to the rpm through mandrake. The rpm from sun works fine though (at least with 9.1).

i'd gladly become a club member, in fact i was at one point when i got my 9.0 off the shelf. at $90.00 Canadian it was part of the package. unfortunately it only lasted a couple months i think. right now i just can't afford it



but thanks for the info, that's what i was wondering...

i'm just happy that i was able to find a rpm that installed the java plugin into mazolla and galeon for me.

Java & Linux the two individuals that give mr. gates something to talk about...

to say that i'm not swooning with 9.1 would be an understatement. i'm now doing a backup that i simply could not get to work under 9.0 and it seems to be doing amazing things like uploading to a website of mine as a backup.

backups are going to important to me as in if i manage to screw something up say like a java or java plugin then hopefully my most recent automated daily backup will save the day.

eeeeewwwwww wweee!
