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-188.8.131.52.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-184.108.40.206.pet
- Automatic installation: use the above pet software package; for frugal Puppy installations this Java installation is only retained when a personal storage save file has already been created; a save file is created during the procedure of re-booting/shutting down for the very first time following a new Puppy installation.
- Manual installation: download J.R.E. from www.java.com; select the file without rpm in its name. After it has downloaded right-click on the file and select Permissions and then Yes, so as to make the file executable. Right-click on the white space inside the window that contains the file and select Window > Terminal Here, and enter (XX=version number)
The file is automatically unpacked and its contents are placed inside a newly created directory named jre1.6.0_XX. From this point advanced users will know what to do with it.
