Which updated Java Runtime to download? [Solved]

Post#1 by cttan » 24 Jul 2012, 09:19

Hi,

I am still using jre-6u26-x86_64-1.xzm and I see that the Porteus repo is having jre-6u25-x86_64-2.

I have downloaded openjre-7u5_b21-x86_64-1alien.txz and converted it to xzma Activated it but it is not working.
Firefox unable to detect java is installed.

Anything missing?

Thank you.

Hi fanthom,

I've tested the package and it's good except for the missing this link:-
ln -s /usr/lib64/java/jre/bin/java /usr/bin/java

The link is missing from the jre-6u26-x86_64-1 as well.

Firefox integration is working.
