jre-7u7-i586.pet

This is the latest Java update for Puppy Linux in PET format. I thought that would be very useful for those who have a full install of Puppy and can't make use of the SFS version as in my case. I tested it today with Firefox (15.0) and Google Chrome (20.0xxx). It should work with Seamonkey, too.

You can download Java Version 7 Update 7 here:
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bx00WSZODViiNUR6RW40V2RRQjg

Notes: Remove previous versions of Java (or unload any SFS files before installing this update.

You can check here if everything worked out for you:

There was an instance that I had rad about where a java update had been corrupted and was installing malware that had the capability of allowing installation of other nasties as well as installing a rootkit on MS pcs.
I do not think it effects linux, but you can never tell.

8-bit,

Sadly, this is a vulnerability in Java itself. If this file is the official JRE, it's going to have the same vulnerabilities. The problem isn't with the operating system (afaik.)
Perhaps someone will release a dotpet of the latest JRE (where they supposedly fixed the security hole)

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77821&start=36

I see this other thread that has a shell script for updating Java JRE to latest version.


Musher0 has created a shell script file to download, Install, and setup PATHS for Java. The shell script is in a zip file to download. Makes the process easy for you. Recommended by GCMartin, too.

Java JRE is up to 1.7U25 as of June 24, 2013. file jre-7u25-linux-i586.tar.gz

Thank you for making this .PET files, dolphintweety . This makes it very Easy to install. Semme nice links above for Java Installation Instructions.


Here is my Full Bodied POST URL with my manual instructions documented. And pets for Java JRE 1.7u21, 1.6u45
