Java on TinyCore Plus
« on: February 21, 2014, 12:54:23 AM »
Is it possible to install Oracle Java on TinyCore?
java-installer (from repositories) failed to install it.
Is it possible to use Swing or SWT GUI tools in TinyCore?

Suggestion:
Peruse search function of this forum with term oracle java

Hi bn3232,

In the repository you find at least sun-jre and sun-jdk in version 6 and 7. If I understood it correctly, you can install java directly from oracle using the java-installer as well.

Which output did you get after having typed:

$ sudo java-installer

I don't know anything about these tools in TC.

You also don't mention which version of tinycore you are running.

TC4.x:
sun-jdk.tcz
sun-jdk7.tcz
sun-jre.tcz
sun-jre7.tcz

TC5.x:
sun-jre7.tcz

Open the App Browser. Change Search to Tags. Type into the text field: java. Now you should be shown now all relevant Apps.

This output is really not very informative. It could be a version problem. I had a look to the or acle webpage and read, the actual version is 7 Update51.

Now try:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo UPD=51 java-installer

Some time ago I installed Oracle jdk7 and jre7 using java-installer under TC 5.x (I forget the exact version).

Look at the Info for java-installer in the Apps browser.

Double-check that you downloaded the correct Oracle Java version and file type (I blew this a couple times), should be:

jdk-7u51-linux-i586.tar.gz

and should be in /home/tc directory.

Then at /home/tc terminal prompt type:

sudo UPD=51 java-installer

download jdk-7u51-nb-7_4-linux-i586.sh then simply run in command line "sh jdk-7u51-nb-7_4-linux-i586.sh" it will start java installation
