How To Install Oracle Java In SuSE

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

SuSE have openJDK and openJRE by default, however, these two won't seem to work every time and seems to be lacking features Oracle Java has. How can I install Oracle Java (JDK and JRE) in OpenSuSe? Will it get replaced automatically after install or should I configure it first?

How To Install Oracle Java In SuSE


Hi Bryan,

It will install java in the following location:


Followed this guide to create the package: Oracle (Sun) Java for openSUSE and Fedora – Easy Linux tips project.

The package will download and install jre and java plugin and will add new entries in "update-alternatives" and set the oracle-java as default java. It adds update-alternatives entries for, java and javaws.
It also links from /usr/lib/browser-plugins/ for mozilla plugin.

It should also remove those entries (except for the soft link for java plugin) while uninstalling.

you can find the package "oracle-java-installer" here: Index of /reporitions/home:/wildnux/openSUSE 12.1
