Sorry, noob here. I've downloaded and activated jre-8u66-i586-1.xzm from the links provided on the thread that you linked, but I'm not sure how to proceed from here. I found this
thread and here slaxmax says that for JDK I'll have to download an additional file (jdk-8u66-linux-i586.tar.gz) along with the jre-8u66-linux-i586.tar.gz. I've downloaded that as well. Now, should I simply convert jdk-8u66-linux-i586.tar.gz to xzm and activate it? Or is there something else that I should do?
As for the Eclipse part, I've downloaded and extracted it but I have no idea how to symlink a folder
EDIT: I learned how to symlink directories but I can't find a jre folder inside the /usr/lib/java. The only folders there are bin, lib, man & plugin.
