Linux - Installation of Java 1.5 on Redhat and Firefox 3.5

Steps

  • Download the file (In my example : jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin) on this location http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/5u22/jdk
  • In graphic mode (X windows), double click on it and answers all questions
  • At the end, java must be installed in this directory : /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
  • Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable.
[root@oel11g tmp]# chmod a+x jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin
  • Verify the changement
[root@oel11g tmp]# ls -l|grep jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root       root       47930001 Oct 16  2009 jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin
  • Change to the directory in which you want to install
[root@oel11g tmp]# mkdir /usr/local/java/
[root@oel11g tmp]# cd /usr/local/java/

You can not choose the installation directory with a Linux RPM (self-extracting) file. It will always be installed in /usr/java To install Java in a system-wide location such as /usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install the Java in your home directory or a subdirectory for which you have write permissions.

  • Move the file from its location to the installation location
[root@oel11g java]# mv /tmp/jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin ./
  • Run the self-extracting binary Type:
./jdk-1_5_0_22-linux-i586-rpm.bin
  • Answer to the question. Done !
