I use Ubuntu 10.10 server as test server for a Java program.
Linux sugam 2.6.35-22-server #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 22:02:33 UTC 2010 x86_64
GNU/Linux Ubuntu 10.10
Since it is a test server and we like to see our application to work in both, 64-bit and 32-bit Java, I like to have OpenJDK (32-bit and 64-bit) and Java SE (32-bit and 64-bit), (total 4 instances) installed on the server.
I could install 64-bit easily and have the following Java versions:
$/app/java64bit/jre1.6.0_23/bin/java -version java version "1.6.0_23" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_23-b05) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 19.0-b09, mixed mode) $ /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java -version java version "1.6.0_20" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.9.2) (6b20-1.9.2-0ubuntu2) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 19.0-b09, mixed mode)
But I am unable to install 32-bit Java on this 64-bit machine. I have correct binaries (cksum and md5sum validated).
On unpacking I get the following error for 32-bit version:
$ ./jre-6u23-linux-i586.bin Unpacking... ./jre-6u23-linux-i586.bin: 56: cannot create install.sfx.12308: Permission denied Checksumming... /usr/bin/sum: install.sfx.12308: No such file or directory [: 83: -ne: unexpected operator [: 83: -ne: unexpected operator chmod: cannot access `install.sfx.12308': No such file or directory Extracting... ./jre-6u23-linux-i586.bin: 86: ./install.sfx.12308: not found Failed to extract the files. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation Instructions on the download page for more information.
Is there a way to install 32-bit Java on a 64-bit server? Any help appreciated.
