Here is a small howto regarding installing JRE 1.5 in suse box :-)1. Get the latest java release from the
Sun Java Website 2. There are several options of downloading...i downloaded the .rpm file.
</p> In the terminal go into the superuser mode with su - Then go to the directory in whcih the jre\*.bin file is present. Type in the terminal chmod a+x jre\*.bin (this command makes the file executable) <p> Now type ./jre\*.bin
3. This should start the extraction and after the extraction is over.? There should be a jre*.rpm file in the current working folder. Install the rpm using : rpm -Uv jre*.rpm 4. Setting up firefox and flock to use the java plugin…
</p> Navigate to the firefox plugins folder in terminal using : cd /opt/MozillaFirefox/lib/plugins/ Then type : ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0\_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin\_oji.so ./libjavaplugin\_oji.so For flock : Navigate to the flock plugins folder..in my case it was cd /opt/flock/plugins/ <p> Then again type : ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0\_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin\_oji.so ./libjavaplugin\_oji.so
5. Restart the browsers and check if java is installed here or visit any java applet webpage :-)HTS !!!(http://java.sun.com)
