Problem with JRE install
trying to update the JRE on a slackware system and I am using the rpm pkg.
rpm -ivf *.rpm leaves me with Failed Dependencies:
and so on ... all end with "is needed by (java pkg)
I've checked and they are there
anyone have any possible solutions to this ?
**latest slackware 12**
Non of the rpm packages will install in your system since they will look at the standard RPM log files and they will find nothing installed .
So the best way if you want to install a rpm package in your Slackware it's to convert it to tgz and after install it
i don't recommand this solution , but i have some packages installed like this and they are working perfect (mainly games).
but always look at the standard packages compiled for Slackware , you can download them from LinuxPackages: View
I had a feeling it had to do with that but thanks for the confirmation.
i am having the same problem though i did upgradepkg --reinstall jre-6u1-i586-1.tgz
and firefox plugin still isnt working . any help would be great
Wish plugins of mozilla is failing ? have a look to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins and see if you have the correct java symlinc to the correct plugins
