How do I successfully Install JDK & JRE on CentOS 5?
Posted on 2008-10-08
I am working on installing Alfresco Labs 3 on a DELL PowerEdge running CentOS 5. In the instructions, it explicitly requires Java JDK 1.6.06 to be running before the linux install can continue.
Unfortunately, the only install from Sun that is available is 1.6.07 (?) so after downloading the rpm, I proceeded to install it. I don't recieve any fail errors or incomplete errors, but when I try to change the default version of Java by performing the following command "alternatives --config java" I recieve no option to switch to the newest JDK.
Does anyone know what I could be missing during the install? Is there something not in the tutorials that I should be doing?
I have read almost every tutorial on installing JDK, so links to tutorials will not be sufficient, unless there is a reference and explanation attached. Thanks in advance,
