I need to install Oracle Java 7 on my FreeBSD 10 server but I am a bit confused.
I am using the ports, and when I do a
make install in the
/usr/ports/java/linux-sun-jdk17 directory I get the following:
===> linux-sun-jdk17-7.60 You must manually fetch the J2SE SDK download for the Linux platform (jdk-7u60-linux-i586.tar.gz) from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html, place it in /usr/ports/distfiles and then run make again. *** Error code 1 Stop. make: stopped in /usr/ports/java/linux-sun-jdk17
Now I understand what it wants me to do, but I am concerned that I am on a amd64 machine and it wants me to get the java package for i586.
Can anyone who has done this give me some advice here? This server needs to be rock solid and perform well.
