Subject description: JRE update Precise puppy
 

No need to wait for pet or sfs files, do it yourself. It works for Precise puppy 5.7.1, not tested in other distros.

Supported browsers: Firefox, opera, seamonkey. Not tested in others.

Step by step for average users:
1) Remove previous version of JRE installed
2) Go to java.com and download the tar.gz file (not the rpm) according to your processor.
3) Extract the file completely in the same partition where your puppy file is, a jre folder will be created, You can copy this folder in /usr, but this will take more space of your saved puppy file. So, I prefer placing it out, like the portable apps.
4) Click in the created jre folder and go to lib/i386. There, look for lilnpjp2.so, maintain this window open.
5) Click on File icon on your desktop (the house), a new window will be opened, then click on the green arrow in the top. Now go to usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
6) From the jre folder, made in step 4, click and displace the file lilnpjp2.so to usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ A menu will be displayed. Click on "Link (relative)"
7) Done, open your browser and test

Note: To configure JRE, click on java/jre1.8.0_25/bin/Controlpanel
