Previously I was installing java 1.7 in 32 bit format with the following

(notice the ftp insert)

yum install ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/centos/6.4/updates/i386/Packages/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.9-2.3.7.1.el6_3.i686.rpm

Open in new window


but now the install no longer works

[root@mmclntx ~]# yum install ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/centos/6.4/updates/i386/Packages/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.9-2.3.7.1.el6_3.i686.rpm
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.
Setting up Install Process
Cannot open: ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/centos/6.4/updates/i386/Packages/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.9-2.3.7.1.el6_3.i686.rpm. Skipping.

woolmilkporc had provided a direct link to the oracle download page for JDK 7 in your previous question which you accepted

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/Q_28339361.html

is that not working for you?

Looks like rpmfind.net have moved to a numbering system closer to Oracles own, i.e. listing the latest version as Java 7 update 45.

Actually the one wmp was pointing me to was a 64 bit JDK, as opposed to the 32 bit jre noted above, wmp's link was extremely helpful, but for a different purpose

I pointed you to both versions (in fact, to all downloadable 7u51 versions, be it 32bit, 64bit, Linux, Solaris, Windows etc.).

You just had to choose which one to download ...

Good point, wmp - 7u51 came out on Tuesday 14th Jan, but isn't available via rpmfind.net yet. I don't know if the rpmfind version is optimised for Centos, but I'd be inclined to go straight to Oracle for Java 7 updates to get the fixes as soon as possible.

Previous Java 7 updates, and updates for Java 1.6 and earlier are a different matter - you need a support contract to be able to download those. Or use rpmfind.net ;-)

True, that one only needs a free Oracle web account. But it's only update 45 (Feb 2013), whereas the latest for 1.6 is update 71 (Jan 2014)
