I have a computer with an old version of Suse (10.2). Upgrading the operating system at this time is not an option. I have a program that requites java 7. I downloaded the rpm file jre-7u21-linux-i586.rpm and executed the following command.
rpm -i jre-7u21-linux-i586.rpm
I executed properly but when I run the program the same error occurs
Bad version number in .class file
I am obviously not getting this done properly or completely and need a hand.
