    How to install Java (JDK/JRE) on Suse 10.x?


    I found that where is a directory called java as
    /usr/share/java
    but it is empty.

    How to instal JDK on Suse 10.x? Is there any easy way to install it with YaST?

    If you set up the normal repositories in Yast just go to

    Yast-Software-Software Management

    search for Java

    be sure to include the Sun-plugin module if you want browser support.

    I believe you will need to set a file in your browser plugin directory if you are using Firefox/ Mozilla. Go to the jave.com download and read the instructions there. Note if you use the above method you can skip the instructions about RPM installation just do the association instructions.

    Suse only supports up to 1.5 if you want 1.6 you must get it from the Java site.
