Java vs Linux.

7 09 2005

I need to slap in Java 1.5 aka Java5 aka… well, whatever the marketing weenies are using today on our colocated box. Because it’s… well… colocated, I naturally don’t have an console there. So I decide to run the installer anyway…

root@boomer:~/storage# ./jdk-1_5_0_04-nb-4_1-linux.bin
InstallShield Wizard
Initializing InstallShield Wizard...
Preparing Java(tm) Virtual Machine...
The installer is unable to run in graphical mode.
Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag.

Okay, that’s fair. So…

root@boomer:~/storage# ./jdk-1_5_0_04-nb-4_1-linux.bin -console
InstallShield Wizard
Initializing InstallShield Wizard...
Preparing Java(tm) Virtual Machine...
The wizard cannot continue because of the following error:
Invalid command line option: console is not supported (1001) (403)

Just gonna be one of those days.

I received the same error message but during the installation of netbeans on my windows xp machine.
If you have a clue, I’m VERY interested. ;o)

run
./install is:javaconsole
It’ll tell you if you’re missing any libs.
