So I am a bit puzzled. After upgrading to 10.04, I seem to have lost my official Sun Java and plugins for Firefox/Opera. I wouldn't care normally about having the official Sun Java instead of IcedTea plugin and Open Java which is now installed, except that my university doesn't support anything for our Student Information System except for official Sun Java.
My question is this: Is there a way to install Sun Java back onto my machine instead of the "new" OpenJava?
If you are interested, Java SE 6 Update 24 is available. The Check Java Version link in my signature will tell you if you are up to date or not. The Update Java Version link in my signature will tell you how to obtain and install the latest version. The 32 bit version install directions are on the left side of that page and the 64 bit instructions are on the right side.
Just remember to remove the current version before installing the new one as it says in the instructions. The remove instructions are below the install instructions. Also, in Step 9 - "Now you'll want to tell the system, that there's a new Java version available." See the note below it that says if you get an error upon entering the command once, enter it a second time. I have to do that and sometimes forget. Just thought I would mention that. These instructions are already setup for version 6 update 24, but they can be modified for any update and they will work. I have been using these instructions for a couple of years and they work.
this one might be simple BUT, where tha heck, I can download some non official software for slackware,I can use installpkg, pkgtool or even gslapt, but WHERE can I download packages or even better set as source for slapt-get.For example two applications: blender 2.49bor due to suckage of craps like mplayer that is installed by default with slackware VLC media player
This is my first post and I'm pretty new on Debian. I had used Ubunu for a while now and I've decided to move on Debian Squeeze.But I've one problem: I've a Java programm to install and the installer is GUI Java based. When I run the script, I've the next message:
Preparing to install. Extracting the JRE from the installer archive.Unpacking the JRE.Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive.Configuring the installer for this system's environment.Launching installer Graphical installers are not supported by the VM. The console mode will be used instead. Preparing CONSOLE Mode Installation. But this program is not able to run the installation in console mode.
I've tried to install sun-java6-jre but without success.Has anyone an idea to help me install this programm? My Configuration: Debian Squeeze 6.0 amd64.
I've recently ran the Updater Applet to install any pertinent official openSUSE updates, but I got 2-3 (they vanished before I could click on them) popups on the bottom right of my screen saying that an update had failed. Additionally, I found the following message in the Updater's lower panel:
Code: This update fixes an issue caused by a previous yast2-ncurses update, which would leave some ncurses (textmode) yast2 tools crashing. - #569000: yast2-ncurses-2.18.11-0.1.1: crash of yast -i with a segmentation fault
I'm using CentOS 5.5 64-bit. When I do "yum info mysql" or "yum info php" it doesn't list the latest version available. Is there a way for me to include more official repository in order to do the install via yum?
Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.
I would like to have the opensuse 10.3 DVD for installing gcc. (I lost the original DVD and with opensuse 11 my laptop does not work) Do you know a webpage where I can download it? The official page doesn't work.
Like a guy earlier today report a problem with Opensuse 11.2 working fine on his machine but 11.3 is not. I have somewhat the same problem. The default installation freezes randomly. I have seen this error before with Intel video cards but never with NVIDIA. Right now, I'm using VESA in failsafe mode and trying to install some drivers from this repo.
I'll try and find a fix for this. (Hope their is one)BTW, can anyone confirm when the official drivers for NVIDIA cards are coming out?
I'm trying to install sid but debootstrap if failing due to bug #581420. I understand the fix is simple but how can I bypass/patch the broken util-linux package that gets downloaded at install time? I'm using the daily d-i business card CD.
I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!
3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.
4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.

I've been trying the best part of the day trying to install Java on a server remotely through terminal.I've read many guides and they are all straightforward - use "sudo apt-get update" and then the following:
Code: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-bin However, I keep getting an error -
I use openSuse 11.1 64 bit with FireFox and want to install Java.I go tho the Sun-site and have the choice between : two Linux RPM files and two non-RPM files. I can download them onto /usr/java Then I want to use the YAST-software installer, but I do not know how to install it from Sun nor to install it from the software-manager.
