I found instructions for installation of Java SDK in openSUSE on http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_Java
I downloaded the file jdk-7u40-linux-arm-vfp-sflt.tar.gz from the Oracle site and followed the instructions on the wiki page more or less for Linux x86. However the following command did not work properly:
sudo /usr/sbin/update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/lib/jdk_Oracle/bin/javac 3 \ --slave /usr/bin/appletviewer appletviewer /usr/lib/jdk_Oracle/bin/appletviewer \ ......
The ...... indicate about 50 lines with --slave lines ending with a backslash.
Apparently this was to much for the command buffer and some of these lines at the end were lost. I could not figure out how to split this one command in two, so it would do what the one commend intended to do.
Any one with a suggestion?
