Yum (or up2date)

Configuration

Please use the entries for your preferred mirror from the following by replacing MIRROR with one of the base URIs in the mirrors page.

Also, specify the JPP release you want by replacing VERSION with one of 1.7, 5.0 or 6.0. The comments say 1.7, adjust them accordingly if you want, but they are just comments. Note that JPP 5.0 and 6.0 do not have repositories for many of the legacy OS releases.

Note that you will want to add the "generic" distribution components to your configuration along with the distribution specific ones because of package interdependencies.

For more information on yum see http://yum.baseurl.org/.

Note: users of yum 2.1 or later on Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux and compatibles (such as CentOS) can simply download jpackage.repo and place it in /etc/yum.repos.d. Be sure to enable the distro specific repository for your distro in it after installing the file.

Attention Fedora users: you are better off manually downloading the jpackage-release RPM and installing it in your system as it provides a repo file that uses priorities to avoid conflicts with Java packages already in Fedora base. It also installs the JPP GPG key.
