Re: [opensuse] How can I make Yast happy when JRE is installed?

Is there some other way to make yast happy and recognize that Java IS

i also failed (ignorance?) to move from SUN Java 6 to 7 on my 11.4 day-before-last--the same day my banks locked me out because i was running 'old' and 'dangerous' software!

tried it with YaST Software Management and then zypper...both installed ok but neither Firefox nor Chrome could find/use it..

then tried the SLE way <http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7010472> which also didn't work (a BIG surprise, i didn't know SLE_ was *that* different..)

then in a forum thread <http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=467910> found a link to <http://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/java-for-opensuse> which (despite the tedious) "just worked":

denverd@linux:~> java -version
java version "1.7.0_05"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_05-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.1-b03, mixed mode)
denverd@linux:~>

*and* Chrome, Chromium, and Firefox found and used 7 out-of-the-box

as expected Opera, Konqueror, links, and lynx were stymied :( <http://susepaste.org/42286421>
