What is the recommended JRE to use on Ubuntu Linux 8.04.3??

And which file contains the environment variables (e.g. JAVA_HOME etc.)??

apt-get install _____________, what would the installation line be??

Thank you, Tom

You should be able to use an HQ bundle download that contains a JRE for use with HQ. Look for x86-linux or x86_64-linux, and you should be golden. If you would prefer to work with the noJRE bundle, having downloaded and installed your own JRE, you would want to set HQ_JAVA_HOME or JAVA_HOME to the path for that JRE (HQ will use its bundled JRE by default, so no need to set the paths in that case).

I could not find reference to a valid Sun JRE package when quickly searching for one, but I believe that `apt-get install sun-java5-jdk` will install the JDK, and that can also be used. I don't have immediate access to an Ubuntu machine at present, so if that fails to work, I can probably run-down more information a bit later.

I can confirm that Chips command is correct. Please make sure that you have enabled the multiverse repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

I started with an HQ bundle containing a JRE.
It fails to find or use the mySQL database, claiming no suitable driver exists.
Therefore I must investigate other options.
Does HQ require Java 5 or can it work with Java 6??
Thank you, Tom

Can you copy paste the shell session contents for your installation attempt here? Start where you call setup.sh, and include everything up to the return of the prompt. You can redact proper hostnames, etc.

Also, can you double-verify the version of MySQL you are using?

Thanks.
