Updating java in linux
I followed the links to the update section at Java.
There are 4 different downloads available for Linux, 2 of which are 64 bit, that leaves me with the 2 other choices. I went to the Package Manager and selected the only two packages that were installed and marked them for re-installation, clicked apply and it re-installed.
I have been in love with Oracle blogging since 2007. hi am using Linux 4 Update 8 and i have installed jdk 1.7 on my previous version 1.4 but when i type #java -version showing [[email protected] java]# java -version Error: dl failure on line 863 Error: failed /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51/jre/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so, because /lib/tls/6: version `GLIBC_2.4?Is it possible that some application is not working with newer version of glibc?Another question is if we need to have the same version glibc which crosstool toolcain (2.3.6) is using.Java 6.22 is available from this PPA (https://launchpad.net/~voronov84/ archive/andreyv), which you can add and install as follows, from a terminal: 2) Install directly from the Java website. I have rebooted the system and rechecked the Firefox updates, but it still shows the older version.The update status says it is vulnerable, that was my reason for wanting to update. The first path is the path to "libnpjp2.so" somewhere in /usr/lib/jvm, i.e. The second path is the path of Firefox's plugins; it's where Firefox will look for suitable plugins that it can load.
