The Guide shows you How to Install the Latest Oracle-Sun Java JDK 7 32-bit Release for Fedora 16 i686 KDE4 Desktop.
Especially relevant: at the Same Time I’m also illustrating here How to Install the New Downloaded .rpm Packages with Dependencies :)
The Screenshots of Installation Correspond to the Install on a Fedora 16 KDE Desktop but the Procedure on GNOME, XFCE and Lxde is Similar…
Following the Easiest and Practicable Way I have Expressly Excluded the Use of Terminal Commands here.
So Take the Time of Carefully Reading and Executing the Instructions Contained Here and All should Work Like a Breeze :)
Download Oracle-Sun Java SE JDK 7:
Select the Open with Package Installer Option or Double-Click After
We Suppose that you Browser like Firefox will Prompt you About the Downloading Procedure to Follow like Here.
If Not Prompted then Double Click on tar.gz Archive…
When the Download is Achieved you will be Automatically Prompted for Installing
After all the Dependencies are Fulfilled Java is Ready to Be Installed
Follow to Confirm and Authorize Also if you Are Warned About Installation of Unsigned Content…
