I am trying to install java on freebsd 7.X and i have done following thing so far

download the tar file from this link and store the file in

cd /usr/ports/distfiles/

after that i run

cd /usr/ports/java/diablo-jre16 **or** 
cd /usr/ports/java/diablo-jdk16
make config install clean 

and uncheck all the options in config screen

now after doing all this now i am getting following message to indicate for amd version even if my server is using intel Core2Quad Q9550 2.83 GHz

mail# make install
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
===>  License check disabled, port has not defined LICENSE
===>  Found saved configuration for diablo-jdk-1.6.0.07.02_12

Because of licensing restrictions,
you must fetch the distribution 
manually.

Please access

     http://www.FreeBSDFoundation.org/cgi-bin/download?download=diablo-caffe-freebsd7-amd64-1.6.0_07-b02.tar.bz2

with a web browser and "Accept" the
End User License Agreement for  "Caffe
Diablo 1.6.0".

Please place the downloaded file(s)
in /usr/ports/distfiles.

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/java/diablo-jdk16.

(as before i was getting error for tzupdater so i downloaded tzupdater-1_3_29-2010f.zip and put it in a cd /usr/ports/distfiles/ folder)

status updated

i have installed it successfully ( i guess) after downloading the amd package but now when i entered command

cd /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.6.0/bin/

and then

java command

to check whether its being installed or not then it is showing me

java: Command not found.

Though java is listed in that dir

AMD invented the 64-bit extensions to the instruction set used by your Intel processor, so they got named after AMD. It has nothing to do with the actual brand of your processor. –  Chris S Feb 22 '11 at 0:02

It's ok, if you installed 64-bit version. Intel uses same instruction set (exception is Itanium), so just download file mentioned in error message.

try reading FreeBSD handbook: freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/basics.html In *nix commands searched only in $PATH, unlike DOS, where commands first searched in current directory and then in %PATH%. So if you want to run java type /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.6.0/bin/java or ./java after cd /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.6.0/bin/ –  gelraen Feb 19 '11 at 19:31
    
You sometimes have to logout/login to get your system to recognize that there are new binaries installed.. –  Chris S Feb 22 '11 at 0:02

The port should install the javavm wrapper, which installs links in /usr/local/bin. Thus, you should be able to type java -version anywhere.
