Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 Installation

Ask Ubuntu Asked by J.C.T. on December 22, 2020

I´ve got HP Proliant dl380 g3 and I can´t use few things from the “iLO(integrated lights-out)” because this tool needs the Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 to run in my browser

HP does not support this Old server so I tried to install it by myself:

I downloaded the j2re-1_4_2_19-linux-i586.bin and executed it in the terminal and this is the result:

Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no] 
./j2re-1_4_2_19-linux-i586.bin: 383: ./j2re-1_4_2_19-linux-i586.bin: ./install.sfx.5638: not found

Any idea of what should I do?

Thanks for your Time!

If you need an elder version of Sun Java (bought by Oracle), you need to download it from, unpack it yourself, and update your $PATH to point to it. Possibly also your $JAVA_HOME for some tooling.

The oficial Installation Notes for Linux

  1. Make sure that execute permissions are set Run this command:

    chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_-linux-i586.bin

  2. Run the self-extracting binary.

    Execute the downloaded file, prepended by the path to it. For example, if the file is in the current directory, prepend it with " ./" (necessary if " ." is not in the PATH environment variable):


Note about System Preferences: By default, the installation script configures the system such that the backing store for system preferences is created inside the Java 2 Runtime Environment's installation directory. If the J2RE is installed on a network-mounted drive, it and the system preferences can be exported for sharing with Java runtime environments on other machines. As an alternative, root users can use the -localinstall option when running the installation script, as in this example:

j2re-1_4_2_-linux-i586.bin -localinstall This option causes the system preferences to be stored in the /etc directory from which they can be shared only by VMs running on the local machine. You must be root user for the -localinstall option to work.

lets try to install Full JDK(Java Development kit) JRE(Java Run-Time Environment) (included) to avoid problems. type these in terminal if your system is Debian: the first thing ,we need to add repository

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

do an update

sudo apt-get update

and finally installing jdk with jre

sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

to verify that you installed java Successfully (optional)

 java -version

as shown there how to install Java in Linux Deb
