Download

Go to http://java.com Click on Get Java Software button Download Linux self extracting binary file (not RPM = Redhat Package Manager).

After download verify binary file : Name of the file is jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.bin, Size is approximately 15.8 MB

Install

Note: The instructions below are for installing JRE 5.0. If you're installing another version, make sure you change the version number appropriately when you type the commands at the terminal.

To install the Linux (self-extracting) file

  - copy file to /opt/usr/java
  - become su (putty login as su)
  - cd /opt/usr/java/

Note about root access: To install the JRE in a system-wide location such as /usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install the JRE in your home directory or a subdirectory for which you have write permissions. Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable. Type:

  - chmod a+x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.bin
  - Verify that you have permission to execute the file. Type: ls -l

  -Start the installation process.Type:./jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.bin

This displays a binary license agreement. Read through the agreement. Press the spacebar to display the next page. At the end, enter yes to proceed with the installation.

The JRE is installed into its own directory. In this example, it is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.5.0 directory. When the installation has completed, you will see the word Done.

The JRE is installed in jre1.5.(version number) sub-directory under the current directory. In this case, the JRE is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.5.0 directory. Verify that the jre1.5.0 sub-directory is listed under the current directory.

The installation is now complete. Skip to the Enable and Configure section.

Enable and Configure

no installation for WEB browser required. Mozilla 1.4 and later

Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type: ln -s <JRE installation directory>/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Example:

If Mozilla is installed in this directory: /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/ and if the JRE is installed at this directory: /usr/java/jre1.5.0 Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory: cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/plugins Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser. ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7 /libjavaplugin_oji.so . Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well. Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Advanced category > Select Enable Java

Mozilla 1.2, Netscape 6 and later

Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Netscape directory cd <Mozilla1.2>/plugins Create a symbolic link to the ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so file: ln -s <JRE>/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Example:

If Netscape is installed at this directory: /usr/lib/Mozilla1.2/ And if the JRE is installed at this directory: /usr/java/jre1.5.0 Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory: cd /usr/lib/Mozilla1.2/plugins Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser. ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7-gcc29 /libjavaplugin_oji.so . Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well. Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Advanced category > Select Enable Java

Test Installation!

To test that the JRE is installed, enabled and working properly on your computer, run this test applet from our web site: Test your Java Runtime Environment If you can see the animation of the Duke logo image, the JRE installation and configuration is successful.

= Install JAlbum !=
