View Full Version : Sun's java SDK on FC2 x86_64
26th May 2004, 12:48 AM
Hi has anyone tried running the Java SDK's available from http://java.sun.com?
I get segfaults when using the 32bit 1.4.2 sdk and the 64 bit 1.5.0 beta1 sdk. [A little more luck with the 32 bit one though]. Everything else on this system seems to run stable though. It passed a round of memtest86 as well.

I downloaded NetBeans 3.6 w/ the 32-bit (assuming) 1.4.2 JDK. It works like a champ on a 64-bit kernel (FC2, 2.6.6).

was this a self-compiled 2.6.6?
[I'm compiling 2.6.7-rc1-bk right now.]

Kinda. I'm using the 2.6.6-1 kernel found at:

Well my self-compiled 2.6.6 and 2.6.7-rc1-bk kernels oops during bootup. It happends fast but it looks like it happens while loading some NFSv4 stuff (rpc...).
What a pain. netconsole doesn't seem to work, so I'm going to have to hook up a serial console to it.

I got the 32bit one going.

I'm running stock FC2 x86_64 and stock kernels. I installed an older 32-bit 1.4.2_03 and that seems to run, but my developers are saying that socket connections aren't working properly. I tried installing the IA64 version of 1.4.2_05, but when the *.bin tries to run it's internal installer it errors out with "cannot execute file". Any thoughts? I assume this HAS to work since Sun is shipping Opteron/Linux machines, but the question is where do we get the right file?

why do you put IA64 in Opteron/Linux machine? I think IA is for Intel Architecture, but not for Opteron. Correct me if I am wrong.

I forgot to follow up. Yes, you are correct, the IA64 was only for the intel. For other versions of the JDK (named, 1.5.0 Beta2) there is an Opteron (AMD_64) version that does install.
I was also able to install the normal ix86/32bit, with mixed results. 1.4.2_05 and 1.5.0Beta2 both seem to work fine, but anything before that either bombs on install or app's have troubles.

Check out this link to get the jre for fedora2

Thanks for that awesome link...not sure how that one escaped my radar (for this and other packages).
However, he only has the JRE and we need the JDK (running in conjunction with Tomcat). I'm going to try IBM's Java as soon as they 'clear me' for the export version.

I think I have no problem with the JDK 1.4.xxx from SUN running on my FEDORA, but If you just want to run tomcat, why don't you try the tomcat service that comes with FEDORA.
