Most users will not need Java Runtime Environment.
Program installs to /mnt/home/java (which is outside any existing pupsave file). This means that for frugal Puppy installations a Java installation is only retained when a pupsave file has already been created first. A pupsave file is created during the procedure of re-booting/shutting down for the very first time following a new Puppy installation.
For those on dial-up it is recommended to use the wget command, by entering into a terminal either of these two commands (file is downloaded to /mnt/home):
wget -t0 --retry-connrefused -c -N -S --wait=2 --random-wait --no-dns-cache --prefer-family=IPv6 --directory-prefix=/mnt/home --no-cache --no-cookies http://dpup.org/01Micko/lupu/jre-126.96.36.199.pet
wget -t0 --retry-connrefused -c -N -S --wait=2 --random-wait --no-dns-cache --prefer-family=IPv6 --directory-prefix=/mnt/home --no-cache --no-cookies http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/lucid/jre-188.8.131.52.pet
- Either via automatic installation using the above .pet software package
- Or, via manual installation:
Do not forget the "./" to begin (that is period – forward slash, to indicate that the file is found in the current directory). You will need to scroll down with the Enter key to accept the license agreement and then the install program will create a folder named something like jre-1.6.0_XX.
