    Problem installing Java in Fedora 12

    I am trying to install Java on a Fedora 12 Linux system.
    After downloading the rpm and changing the permissions I execute


    The license agreement shows and after accepting this is what happens

    Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
    ./jre-6u17-linux-i586-rpm.bin: ./install.sfx.2726: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No existe el fichero o el directorio
    (no such file or directory)

    And so the rpm doesn't decompress and I cannot follow ahead with the installation.

    Version jre-6u17-linux-x64-rpm.bin for 64 bits can be installed but doesn't allow applets.

    I think the download may be corrupted, redownload and attempt again.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    its not corruption, it passed the checksum built into the file

    I think it has to do with installing 32-bit jdk on 64-bit OS. I think it is looking for 32-bit version of the and not finding it.

    I believe you're right, coopstah13, don't think it is corrupt.
    I tried witih both the bin and the rpm downloadable files and behaviour was the same.

    Curiously, I installed the 32 bit version on Fedora 11 successfully.

    On its site, Java itself suggests to install the 32 version even on 64 bit systems in order the applets to run. Seems to be they do not have the Java 6 update 17 in 32 bits.
    Curiously, I found out they already developed the 64 bit version for Flash Player.
    I will try with the 64 bit version.
