PostPosted: Thu 28 May 2015, 21:17    Post subject:  Java Runtime Environment 8u45 sfs for PuppyLinux
Subject description: Latest available 32-bit JRE as of this writing
 

Hello, all.

Judging from the results in the forum search function, it doesn't seem that
anyone has advertised a recent JRE upload for Puppy, so I created one.

I've assembled the latest JRE-8u45 as an sfs file. You can download it
from here.

Created from the original, downloaded from this Oracle site.

It's for 32-bit Puppies. If you're a 64-bit Puppy user, woosh-woosh, run
along, there's nothing here for you! Wink

I've set it up in /opt with links to java binaries in /usr/bin. jajuk, borg,
datacrow, etc., run just fine with it on my slacko-6.0b.

Questions & comments welcome.

Enjoy. Bye for now.

Bonjour,
Thank you very much musher0. Very Happy
Question: are "JRE-8u45" and "jre-1.8.0-25" (for example!) different things? Are they both to be installed? Can the first one replace the second?
I admit it is not very clear for me, sorry!
I plan to upload jajuk and datacrow on the ToOpPy server soon...

Cordialement.

Hi musher0,

If I may offer a suggestion it might be an idea to chown -R everything to root:root. I often find that unpacked tarballs have strange ownerships. Usually it still all works when Puppy is running as root but I seem to recall that when shinobar was uploading JRE packages there was a problem and we tracked it down to this issue.

I do sometimes upload JRE packages to my http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks storage, but I don't mention it much. Recently I have started using JDK instead which I unpack in /mnt/home (so as not to use savefile space) and then I just add the bin path to PATH in /etc/profile. I believe poster gjuhasz also sometimes uploads JRE packages http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=91560 but not always so the more the merrier I say. We do really need someone who uses java regularly to post the updates regularly.

@ Argolance,

Someone will correct me if I am wrong but I believe they are pretty much the same thing. The package name is jre-8u45 but when you extract the tarball the directory name is jre1.8.0_45 so you do not need to install 2 packages.

Hello, Argolance.

As OscarTalks says, they are the same thing. I used upper-case letters
in the name of the sfs, that's all. (Typo: the "25" in your post should
actually be a "45".)

@OscarTalks
I didn't know that, about permissions in some sfs's. Thanks for
stretching my antennas!

Bye for now.

Hello @OscarTalks. And yes, I remember your prior works with @Shinobar.

I would ask; respectfully, if you,like @Musher0, would post an entry on this forum page any updates/links to JDK that you buld. This makes it easy for users and developers to know what's available/preexisting for JAVA.

The only other item to mention is this
JAVA libraries: If all developers use a consistent library pathing, it could make life very simple to movements withing versions. I am NOT sure what JAVA recommends on the issue of library placements for consistency.

Thanks for what you guys do in this area of need.

The method I am using now is to download the jdk tarball, unpack it into /mnt/home, rename the directory as just jdk for simplicity, add the path /mnt/home/jdk/bin to the end of the PATH line (separated by a colon) in /etc/profile and reboot. You have the option to create the symlink too if you want the browser plugin. Others may wish to try doing this or something similar, but it is not practical to offer this as a package for others to install or load.

EDIT:-
If anyone does want jdk as a package I guess you could just do it like this. I placed the main directory with its name unaltered in /usr/local/java and symlinked all the bins into /usr/local/bin plus the symlink for the browser plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and icon and .desktop file for the control panel.

Thanks for new JavaRE package, added to

http://www.puppylinux.org/wikka/JavaRuntimeEnvironment

Cool

Unfortunately, I get the 'unable to mount' error when I try to load with SFS-Load (on the fly), I'm using Slacko 5.3.1.

---

For anyone struggling with Mozilla integration there is a new symlink plugin location:

ln -s /usr/java/java/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so

Also, it seems JavaRE now requires every site to be made a security exception to run?

PostPosted: Tue 07 Jul 2015, 19:25    Post subject: JDK packages for 32bit PUP distros  

Edited: @OscarTalks has already created the JDKs over a month ago. My knowledge of his current JDK packages did NOT exist prior to my post. Anyone else looking for the current JDK will find it on this site from him.

Original post

Yes, I feel something like this for community use would be a plus. It would match free education requirement which currently is set only for Windows/Macs JDK installs (because most developers have Windows/Macs PCs; including @BarryK). If the libraries are standard, it would make it easy for the JAVA plugins (eClipse, for example) to be added.

Thanks if this can be placed alongside the JRE in the opening thread(s) and alert us via its subject field.

Hi, darkcity.

Thanks much for the reference on the Puppy wikka and for the new
symlink advice.

As to an SFS-Load error, I didn't seem to get one when I tried it (on
Puppy Precise 5.4.3 and the new 666philb's upups). I must say that I
seldom use SFS-Load. "By default", I prefer to include my sfs files in the
regular sfs add-on list that is processed at boot time.

BFN.
