I just went to www.java.com and downloaded jre-1.5.0_02 its all they were offering for Linux RPM.... Did I get the right one?

OT: I wish they would be consistent in their naming conventions, it "upgraded" jsdk-1.4.6 and jdk-1.5.0_fcs, but I still have a j2sdk-1.4.2 installed on my system. B^)

It would be better to use


as it much better matches the Fedora system.


But notice in the FC4 release notes you can't install the java through a rpm. You must use the .bin form.

If you follow the instructions at jpackage.org to build the java RPMs, they're built from the .bin file downloaded from the Sun website. The jpackage java RPMs are designed to work properly with the java alternatives system used in Fedora.
