no oracle java for 686 pae kernel?

Postby squig » Tue Oct 02, 2012 3:05 am

Hi, need to install orcale java jdk on my lmde install. Im running the 32bit version with the 686 pae kernel (3.2).

Since there is no package in the repository i intended to follow this guide: viewtopic.php?f=197&t=98650
The problem is that there's no version for the i686 kernel on oracles webpage, they've only listed i586 and x64.

Can i use the i586 version just the same?

Yes. i386, i486, i586 and i686 are all 32 bit architectures. The difference is that the higher the number, the more "advanced" a processor you need as it will be using more advanced (but still 32 bit) instructions. I've quoted the "advanced" part of it, as anything from the past decade will support i686 (which was introduced with Pentium Pro in 1995).

amd64 is for 64 bit architectures. You can't use that, but the above listed you can all use.
